We pray blessings on you and your family as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Thank you for all your prayers and support over the last year.
Our mission continues… to Reach 2 Million Men for Christ.
We believe it is a God-given vision, we know that with God all things are possible. God has given us some exciting new initiatives to pursue and with your financial partnership we will boldly go after the mission, encouraged because we see men’s lives weekly transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We want to give a summary of 2014 and where we are heading into 2015 and beyond.
IHG FOUNDING MEMBERS
The biggest question we get is “How do I get involved and support the IHG Mission?”
We now have the answer:
Join us in the mission of In His Grip Golf by becoming a IHG Founding Member. A Founding Member is an individual that becomes an IHG ambassador to share and support the mission.
Founding members will join the front line of reaching men for Christ by IHG equipping members with gear, discipleship resources and events to reach others in your community.
We need an army of men reaching others, hosting small groups on the golf course to make an impact in this world.
In 2014, we launched the IHG Founding Members Program with an amazing 30 members joining the mission. Our goal is to have 100 IHG Founding Members by 2017, which are men committed to investing a minimum of $1,000 annually to fuel the IHG mission.
EVENTS-A FATHER’S DAY MOVEMENT
Since 2006, we have seen over 15,000 men play in our In His Grip Invitational events with over 600 men making decisions to follow Christ as their personal Savior.
We praise God for the work he is doing at these events and all the hard work of our dedicated church partners.
This past year we hosted an IHG Invitational in Tennessee with a dad bringing his three sons. Two of the sons had a personal relationship and one of the sons had been running away from God. The dad came up to me after the event with tears streaming down his cheeks as his prodigal son had made the comment to him, “Dad, we need to do this more often.”
In 2016 we will launch a national movement of IHG Golf Invitational tournaments focused on Father’s Day Weekend. These events will Honor the Father….on Fathers Day Weekend.
THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA
Everyday we are reminded of the power of God’s word through social media that enables us to reach thousands instantaneously. It is so true that God’s word never returns void. Daily devotional messages and blog articles to the 40,000 IHG followers give responses such as this……
“Scott, I look with great anticipation of what bible verse you are going to share each morning. Thank you for your inspiration.” Josh
With God’s provision, we were able to produce twenty-one IHG “Back Nine” episodes (2 minute lessons on golf & life) on IHG Web TV this last year with the top 3 videos receiving 5,400 views. The combination of helping men improve their game and find purpose in their lives through Christ will continue in 2015 by producing more episodes.
We appreciate your prayers and your continued financial support and ask that you would consider investing in IHG this coming year through a year-end tax-deductible donation. You can donate by clicking the button here:
