21 Years of Being Mission Driven
The Mission Driven Car Show at St. Francis in the Fields has been held annually since 1993 and takes place in the early Fall. All proceeds from this event benefit our summer mission work in the former mining town of David, Kentucky, and the Dominican Republic. No funds raised at the Car Show are used for mission team members’ transportation, food, or other personal expenses—they all go directly to the people and projects that continue to be undertaken by St. Francis in these communities.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where does the Mission Driven Car Show take place?
The Car Show is held on the grounds of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church, located at the corner of US-42/Brownsboro Road and Wolf Pen Branch Road. The address is 6710 Wolf Pen Branch Road in Harrods Creek, KY.
Is there an entry fee or cost for exhibiting?
There is no entry fee for exhibitors, but donations to our outreach efforts, described in greater detail, are provided below!
Where should I park if I am exhibiting?
If your car is in the exhibit, you will be guided to a parking spot as you enter the grounds (either from US-42 or from Wolf Pen Branch Road). You will then want to visit our Registration booth for a Vehicle Identification ticket and swag bag. Note that the first 200 exhibitors to register will receive a special Car Show poster!
What are the available prizes for judged cars?
There are two primary prizes to be won at our Car Show, along with an accompanying trophy for each: the Sharon Lea “Best in Show” award, and the Tom Brown “Popular Vote” award. The top 100 judged cars also receive a special exhibitor’s trophy, and the first 200 registrants receive a dash plaque in their swag bag. Door prizes, a 50/50 pot drawn at the show’s end, and raffle prizes are also all up for grabs! Stop one of our church youth to purchase tickets–they will be circulating the church grounds wearing brown money belts.
Will there be food and beverages available?
You are welcome to visit our concessions stand at the top of the “Bowl,” the large green space in front of the church building, for pulled pork sandwiches, burgers, sides, sweets, soda, and water at any point during the show. Look for the pig!
What kind of work is done on St. Francis missions?
Our parish has been traveling to the Appalachian town of David, Kentucky, in Floyd County, and three communities in the Dominican Republic (San Cristobal, San Rafael, and Samangola) every June for three decades. In David, our teams of youth and adults support the David School, an alternative school for at-risk youth in the area, by performing valuable upkeep on school grounds and holding a week-long VBS there for children in the area. It also works to rehabilitate homes in the community, which were built more than 50 years ago out of green wood as temporary homes for mining families, but which still house a number of residents to this day. In the DR, we maintain our close relationship with the Dominican Evangelical Church by building and maintaining church buildings across the southeastern half of the country and, in partnership with local DEC youth, offering a Spanish-language VBS to local children.
