The “Day of Play” was a phenomenal success! The guys and gals called Pastors and wives had a day of fun filled with great food and plenty of laughs.
Thank you Randy Knapp of Schalamar Creek Golf Club of Lakeland Florida for making this possible. Another thanks goes to Travis Avery as Chairman of the event co-Chairman Lynn Briedenback and special assistance of Terry Tucker, Sam Goss, Curt Patterson and a host of others. Praise God for helping make this a very special day.
The wives kicked off the “Hey Girl” minstry for Pastor’s wives. There were about 5o ladies who started this new movement for these often forgotten women. They had special guests to pamper and entertain them as they got acquainted. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.
We had 75 men and one lady playing in the golf tournament, which was all about fun!!! Three pastors had an oppotunity for a hole in one to win $25,000, a new car, and One Million Dollars. (Unfortunately they did not make it).
The meal from Grandpa Johnsons Barbeque was provided by Scalamar Creek and it was delicious. Travel by Horizon gave away several Vacations. There were gifts and prizes for all who attended, even 2 bicycles were given away.
A very special painting was done on stage by Christian Artist Keith Goodson. It left everyone in awe!!!
We were also blessed to have as our Platinum Sponsor Dallas 1 Corporation/Faith Tampa Bay Ministries. Our good friend Bart Azzarelli worked with us to make every Pastor welcome.
We again thank Randy Knapp for his heart to give and bless this ministry and the Pastors we serve. We believe that this will be the first of many events with Randy Knapp and Schalamar Creek
