Golf Outing

Training the saints to certification in biblical counseling

2017 Mike Hall Memorial Golf Outing

In a world of “I’ll scratch your back, if you scratch mine” (self-contentedness, even in the church), we need more examples of biblical love: a self-sacrificing and giving endeavor for the joy of the other. This truth is exactly what we consistently teach to counselees and would-be counselors. “It is better to give than receive” (Acts 20:35). Mike Hall wanted to see that kind of love in God’s people, and we exist to equip the church to help her people live out that calling.

As our only CHARITY EVENT of the year, our annual golf outing goes a long way in making that passion possible. We have gratefully and humbly received nearly a quarter of our annual operating budget from our last several outings. Thank you.

The Annual Rod & Staff Mike Hall Memorial Golf Outing, our one and only charity event of the year, is gearing up to be another great event this summer.  The course is fun, the company is kind, and your hearts will be refreshed.  Would you please consider helping us by joining us?

The scramble format tournament will be played at Hickory Stick Golf Club (NEW LOCATION!!) located in Greenwood, IN on Thursday, August 17 (NEW DATE!!).  Registration begins at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at 12 p.m. (NEW TIME!!).  Your fee includes greens fees, cart fees, complete practice facility, bag drop service, GPS tournament management and electronic on-cart scoring by Hickory Stick Golf Club professional staff, a Chick-fil- A lunch, and a Fill the Grille Dinner Buffet with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks.

We look forward to seeing you on the greens!
