Team Faith is a non-profit multi-faceted Outreach Ministry that impacts people who are enthusiastic about Action Sports. We started in 1994 in the Pro Personal Watercraft Racing industry and have migrated to the Pro Motocross Racing and Freestyle Motocross industries respectively. Team Faith’s vision is to establish evangelism teams of action sports athletes led by “Pit Pastors” (Chaplains), to infiltrate professional racing circuits and other action sports events.
In addition to ministering and competing on the National Arenacross Series, We have also competed on the Supercross Series with Kevin Johnson as our premier rider. Kevin Johnson is the 2008 X Games Gold Medalist in the Speed and Style Competition. 2011 saw the addition of Kelly Smith as our Arenacross/Supercross rider who won Arenacross Main Events in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2012 we signed Jeff Gibson to our Arenacross program and he finished 2nd in the Championship with multiple wins. In 2014 Gavin Gracyk replaced Jeff Gibson (who retired) on our Arenacross Program.
Team Faith also competes and provides Spiritual Services for the GNCC Off-Road Racing Series, where our UTV racing efforts have brought us the 2009 GNCC Lites Limited UTV Championship and the 2011 GNCC Lites UTV Championship with driver/Pit Pastor Chuck Lemaster and navigator Brian O’Rourke.
We also compete and minister to the Hydro Turf Watercross National Tour watercraft racing series. In 2010, in our first season back into racing PWC, founder Brian O’ won the Pro Hydo-X Racing Tour Sport Spec Championship. In 2013 Kelly Smith tried his hand at racing watercraft as well and finished 3rd in Overall Points for the Hydro Turf Watercross Nationals in both the Sport Spec and the Sport Open Spec classes and won the US National Championship in the Sport Open Spec class in Charlestoin, WV. He also finished 4th Overall in the same class at the IJSBA World Finals. Brian O’ finished 2nd in Overall Points for the Hydro Turf Watercross Nationals in both Sport Spec and Sport Open Spec classes and finished 7th Overall in the same class at the IJSBA World Finals.
