Welcome to Speedway Community Ministries

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1.

A New Season

God has prepared me for this new ministry opportunity in my senior years through the pastoring of Speedway Community Church.  At age 70 it was clear to me that there is NO place in the Bible that references the word “retirement”; hence the starting of Speedway Community Ministries, beginning a new ministry for me!

Speedway Community Ministries originated in Homestead, FL, with the desire to come alongside and adopt a local K-8 public school. We clothed needy children with sweaters and jackets to start what evolved into tutoring and mentoring children primarily in the area of reading.  Statistics show that if children don’t have a grasp on reading by the 3rd grade they will have an uphill struggle for years. The ministry soon grew into much more as the need was over-whelming. Our first school grew to 16 schools over the next few years. We found that the children’s reading skills excelled, and the school’s ratings raised significantly. But the icing on the cake was to bring God back by praying with teachers prior to the start of school.

In September 2018 we relocated to Ft. Pierce, FL and have already adopted 7 elementary schools tutoring over 200 children weekly.

Pastor Shiffer would like the opportunity to speak about this ministry to your church, business or group on how you can learn more about investing in children’s lives.
