Funding the mission is part of ministry. It gives you and me an opportunity to be used by God to bring the financial tools into His tool shed. These tools are used by Him to accomplish His work. In this case, funding the mission will pay for ministry to children in 18 Long Island group homes and in single parent homes across our Island. The Master’s Putt For Youth will take place at 9am on May 12th at the Country Fair in Medford. It is located at 3351 Route 112 but you can prepare now.
- This event is effective in many ways.
First, the costs associated with a miniature golf tournament are very reasonable. A golf outing at a private club costs a ministry around $350/golfer. So at most other golf outings, a lot of money is collected but a great deal goes to the country club. This event costs us less than 10% of that amount. So most of the money that is saved goes directly to the work with the children and we still have a great time.
Secondly, anyone can participate. As a matter of fact, some of the mentors bring the children they mentor.
BE A GOLFER IF You watch golf, you are a spectator. If you play Golf, you are a golfer. If you raise money for Long Island Youth Mentoring, you are participating in furthering the Kingdom of God.
1. Call 631-242-5101 and register to be a golfer.
2. You can download a sponsor sheet and set a goal for how much you want to raise. Then ask friends and family to sponsor you for every hole you play. You will play 18 holes. When they scratch their head and say: ‘You want me to pay you to play miniature golf?’ You say: YES! and all of the funds are not only going to minister the gospel to fatherless children, but you will also get a full tax deduction.
3. Show up on May 12th and enjoy a fun morning at the Country Fair in Medford. It is located at 3351 Route 112. But the preparation to be effective starts now. There will be prizes for the most money raised, most holes in one, and several more. You may even win a car like the one pictured.
