Chemult Bible Fellowship / Steering Wheel Ministries

are guiding people to repentance of sin at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ and by His shed blood. This is because Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven for Jesus Himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”  Acts 4:12

While working as a long haul truck driver

Merwin Johnson-Rhoades, having been raised in a religious home, came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior through a trucking ministry, but his wife, Debbie, was saved at the age of 11. A couple of years after his salvation Merwin and Debbie answered God's call to take the Good News of Jesus Christ to the trucking industry where Merwin has served the Lord as a chaplain/pastor since 1987. In 1995 Merwin and Debbie, started Steering Wheel Ministries, and in 2011 they started Chemult Bible Fellowship.

 Chemult Bible Fellowship / Steering Wheel Ministries  are non-denominational Christian ministries dedicated to reaching people for Jesus Christ one soul at a time by proclaiming the gospel in such a way that it is easily understood, to build them up in their faith in Jesus Christ, and to teach them how to properly share their faith with others.

       Chemult Bible Fellowship and Steering Wheel Ministries are also here for truckers who are on the move who may be able to get to their home church only three or four times a year.

Days Of Jubilee is the weekend before Memorial Day Weekend in May every year. This annual Trucker’s Days Of Jubilee is a four day outreach at Pollard Flat, a small truck stop at Exit 712 off I-5 north of Redding, CA. During the Jubilee the Thursday & Friday evening tent services are at 6:30 on the truck parking lot with Saturday being Trucker’s Appreciation Day with free food and live music from 1:00 PM ‘till 8:00 PM, and ending with Sunday morning Worship service at 9:00 in the tent. We also have an “Afternoon of Jubilee” at two other truck stops throughout the summer—see our Steering Wheel Ministries website for more info.

The Vision God gave at the start of Steering Wheel Ministries was to start a church in an un-churched community for the community and out of the church we were to have a trucker’s center. In January 2011 God made it clear where this was to be, which meant a move to Chemult, OR where Chemult Bible Fellowship began June 12, 2011 right on Hwy 97 for the community, truckers, tourists and transients equally. Services are 10:30 Sunday morning, 5:00 Sunday evening and 6:30 Wednesday evening. We invite everyone to make Chemult Bible Fellowship your home church.

Chemult Bible Fellowship / Steering Wheel Ministries are working hard to reach locals, truckers, tourists, transients alike for Jesus Christ by bringing them information that will establish, enrich, strengthen, and maintain their relationship with Jesus Christ.

     We will have to wait until we get to Heaven to find out what the full impact of our efforts have been. All we know now is that each year we see people committing their lives to Jesus Christ as their Savior, receiving their first    Bible, and being encouraged to keep going with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. This is what we know about right now—only God knows the rest of the story.


Chemult Bible Fellowship & Steering Wheel Ministries are the same ministry, just two different names, and are solely supported by donations given by those who want to have a part in "Steering People On The Highway to Heaven.”
