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 emotional and spiritual care 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 @airshowangel9 #prayon

PRESENTATION Displaying show-quality military-themed 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 provides 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 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 free "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 303-726-5238. 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 also offer : 
  • 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.

For more information about Angel9, email or call 303-726-5238. Thanks for your interest in Angel9 and Air Show Ministries! Find us on Facebook at "Angel9 - Air Show Ministries" or Twitter/Instagram @AirShowAngel9.

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 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 available to the air show director if a Chaplain is not assigned.
