The Christian Harness Horsemen’s Association (CHHA) was established in 1983 to serve Jesus Christ in harness racing. Weldon Stockwell of Sunbury, Ohio led the organization as Executive Director for the first 27 years. On January 1, 2011 Weldon passed the reigns to Chaplain Lee Alphen of Salem, NH.

Jesus Christ, as the head of the CHHA, shepherds the organization as the Way, the Truth and the Light. Prayer is key to the ongoing success. Leaders listen to the Word as they seek to spread the Gospel message and reach out to those in the harness racing community with the love of Christ.

Over 60 prayer partners continuously lift up the needs of CHHA, CHHA members and those requesting prayer to Our Lord Jesus Christ. Chaplain Lee and some of the prayer partners pray daily for all the CHHA members, benefactors and those on the prayer list. Chaplain Lee also sets aside one day each month to pray specifically for each member and their needs. As she goes through the member list she calls some of the members and prays with them.

Members around the United States, Canada and abroad are connected by a monthly newsletter highlighting members at various tracks, farms and training centers. A terrific network of Christians in racing has been established. These members stand ready to help one another.

Five Godly women and men currently serve on the Board of Directors. Feel free to contact them with your ideas and concerns.
