Serving the Air Show Community


Air Show Ministries is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Castle Rock, CO. We were founded in 2009 to serve the air show ministry through:

PEOPLE  Providing spiritual support to military and civilian air show performers, organizers and spectators through volunteer Chaplains and Ministry Partners onsite during shows. If you have an interest in volunteering, please see our Chaplains page.

PRAYER  Actively praying for each performer participating in an air show. Posting prayer requests for followers on social media to join in.

PRESENTATION  Displaying show-quality vehicles at air shows, car shows, air museums and other related events. This gives us the ability to interact with spectators, and share the mission of Air Show Ministries. Please see the Angel9 page for more information.

Air Show Ministries seeks to provide chaplain services at no charge to air shows. To do this, we rely on fundraising for travel, maintenance, chaplain/partner programs, giveaways and events. Thank you for your support and generosity.

Angel9 - Blue Angels-themed Trans Am

Scheduling selected shows for 2017 and 2018: Our first priority for shows with Angel9 are those with the Blue Angels, but we are open to other air shows and events as our schedule allows.



Angel9 is available as a ground attraction, free for air show visitors to enjoy and photograph. Military personnel in uniform are welcome to sit in the "cockpit" and have their picture taken. Angel9 features original art under the hood, navigational and directional lights, cockpit-style displays, mock ejection seats, custom audio and video system, and more!

Angel9 is not endorsed by the U.S. Navy or associated with the Blue Angels. Angel9 is a tribute car that has been well received by the public as well as performers, including past and current Blue Angels teams. In 2012 we were invited to photograph Angel9 with their planes, and at every show we have attended, their teams members have enjoyed using it as a place to sign autographs. We also give away "trading cards" of the car and candy.

Angel9 is also available for car shows, air museums, military/recruiting events and community events, depending on schedule. As we operate by donation only, these events are limited. If you want to book Angel9 for an event, please call 303-495-4359. Angel9 is presented by Air Show Ministries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves the air show community behind the scenes.We are a member in good standing of the International Council of Air Shows.  

As part of our mission, we offer two free services to the air shows we attend:
  • Free water and shade for the Blue Angels' VIP guest area (we can also do this for the Thunderbirds or other team with a VIP area). This has been vital for the Friday show especially, as vendors are often not set up for the practice show; 
  • Free chaplain service for the entire weekend, which can include pilot briefing and/or public invocations, and incident response. Even if we do not bring Angel9 to an air show, we can provide a chaplain to be onsite all weekend.

Chaplains and Ministry Partners

 

Air Show Ministries provides free Chaplains and Ministry Partners to air shows


Ministry Partners

PERFORMERS Put a zap on your plane or car and represent the mission of Air Show Ministries! Host prayer at your plane or ask the air boss to pray at the pilot briefing (or have our chaplain do it). Let your fellow performers know you are there for them! We are working on flight suit patches as well. Email us at info@airshowministries.org if you are interested!


VENDORS Put the Air Show Ministries logo on your tent or signage. Host prayer at your booth for other vendors and volunteers. Typically, this is done Sunday am before the gates open. Be on hand and available to the air show director if a Chaplain is not assigned to an air show.*

VOLUNTEERS/WORKERS Ask for an Air Show Ministries button for your lanyard. Let your supervisor, director and air boss know you are onsite should any needs arise. Although you cannot call yourself a Chaplain, anyone can serve the air show community as Christ's ambassador!*

AIR SHOW STAFF You are also welcome to represent Air Show Ministries as well by putting a button on your lanyard.*

*Vendors, volunteers, staff: please email us at info@airshowministries.org if you are interested in working toward joining us.

Resource Partners

Air Show Ministries Resource Partners

We're blessed to be provided with free resources that we give away at every event we attend. Stop by our booth and pick up a Bible, film, app, devotional and more!



Thanks to the generous donations to their ministry, the American Bible Society's Armed Services Ministry has provided FREE military E100 Bibles for us to give away at air shows to active duty personnel, veterans and their families. We also have devotionals and other spiritual care booklets for a variety of topics.


Thanks to a generous donor, we are able to give away the Jesus film at air shows and events; the DVD comes in English, with options for a variety of languages included.




Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar, CA, has provided promotional copies previewing their full film "Taking The Hill". Presented by Pastor Raul Ries, the film delves into Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and offers hope and healing through Christ.
