Friday, March 8th was the perfect day to shoot some clay's. With the skies very overcast, nearly 700 shooters participated in the charity fundraiser held at the American Shooting Center in Houston, Texas. The shoot benefited the Oilfield Christian Fellowship and the Oil Patch Chaplains.

The Oilfield Christian Fellowship (OCF) began in May of 1991 as an outlet to meet other Christians in the oilfield. But the OCF has evolved into many more forms of outreach, including a custom Bible ministry, facilitating and supporting a truck and trailer field ministry, and a man camp chapel in Wyoming. Over140,000 Bibles have been hand carried by oil workers around the world to 51 countries in 24 languages.Of those, over 130,000 are custom Oil Patch Bibles written in English, Spanish and Chinese. The long term goal is to reproduce this unique Bible, God’s Word for the Oil Patch, Fuel for the Soul into every language in the world where there is an oil and gas presence.

The Oil Patch Chaplains began in January of 2008 and now consists of 60 plus Chaplains that are either full time or retired oil industry workers. These Chaplains are required to have at least 32 hours of classroom training in Critical Incident Response, the same training recognized by the Red Cross, FEMA, and all NATO countries. These volunteers are from all Christian faiths, and thus far have been called to numerous critical incidents since their inception. There are now Oil Patch Chaplains in nine energy producing states.
