Not sure you've been able to see what Golf From the Heart, (GFtH) L3C (Click) is all about, but, one of the objectives has been to join with other ministries in golf. Thankfully, GFtH has recently been able to partner with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Golf in order to assist in recruiting for their Gamedays and to help continue the connection with the young golfers and family members to assist in the growth of their golf game and their "game of life" as we say.
We have seen clearly over the past 25 years that ministries are doing wonderfully in reaching out to golfers with the gospel through events, tournaments, local and regional group engagements. One of the challenging areas relative to these events has been how to continue the engagement, ie, get them into small groups or huddles and continue to help them grow in their faith. This is essential. We are partnering with FCA Golf to do just that.
How, you might ask.
We will do our best to promote the events and maintain contact with those that have heard of the Gameday in a PGA, Champions or Web.com Tour location and, especially those who attend the Gameday. Through close coordination with FCA Golf and developing connections/relationships with local FCA leaders, we hope to encourage the youngsters and their families to connect with their local FCA. Not only this, but, we will maintain an engagement with them through Social Media and messaging.
This will take the form of regularly automated messages connecting the young golfers with local activities that will foster their game and life. Additionally, we will encourage them through video's from respected members of the golf community that will provide tips on improving their game as well as solidifying their Christian walk.
We are initiating this program at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and will be communicating with all of the kids and parents that have expressed interest in the Gameday, January 30, 2018. We will attend the event and post pictures, video's and Social Media Live events to make the event valuable and more enjoyable to all.
Please pray with us regarding these efforts as we continue to "give the gospel through golf."
