Gospel group drives Jesus on fairway

first_imgEric Nesbit, golf ministry director at Westshore Evangelical Free Church in Harrisburg, Pa., said they’ve had a golf ministry about a year and plan to hold their first invitational in June. The church has about 55 men in its golf league and is encouraging them to invite other men from outside the church to the invitational. Nesbit said church members heard about In His Grip and wanted to work with Lehman to start such a ministry at their church, which has about 2,500 people who regularly attend services. “Our strategy is not necessarily to have them join the church in the immediate future … but to show them a relationship, whether it’s friendship, enjoying the game of golf together in a Christian way,” he said. “If you were to play golf with me, I don’t curse or throw clubs. It’s a different way of playing golf. “We try to locate opportunities in the discussion where that (Gospel) will come up. You have to be careful. You don’t want to invite a nonbeliever and then rush right into it on the first hole. Hopefully, by them seeing how we interact with each other … will cause them to be interested and get that conversation started.” “Our vision is to reach every golfer in every nation,” Lehman said. “Right now we’re seeing a big trend of churches looking to meet people outside the four walls of the church, and this is a strategy to help them do that.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! In His Grip holds training workshops for churches and shows them how to host golf tournaments to reach out to men who aren’t active churchgoers. Sevedge, 52, attended an In His Grip tournament about three years ago in Port Byron, Ill., where he said he was impressed by the character of golfers participating in the event. He said the experience helped lead him back to attending church regularly and to becoming involved in a Bible study group. A self-employed salesman, Sevedge plays about 60 rounds of golf a year and finished with an impressive 10-handicap last year. His church, Heritage Wesleyan in Rock Island, Ill., hosted the In His Grip tournament. “I’ve always believed in Christ,” he said. “But there was a long time I fell away and wasn’t an active participant. I would go to church and go through the motions. But this sparked me to really seek out my relationship with Christ. It led me back.” Golf courses are ideal places to share the Gospel because it takes hours to play a round, and it’s easy to talk while walking along fairways and riding in golf carts, organizers say. NASHVILLE, Tenn. – It wasn’t a big tent revival, TV evangelist or personal crisis that led Russ Sevedge back to church. It was big drives and fast greens. Sevedge and other serious golfers like him are finding Jesus on the fairways because of the In His Grip Golf Association, a ministry that teaches churches how to use golf as a way to share the Gospel. Founder Scott Lehman said he got the idea for In His Grip from driving by golf courses on Sunday mornings and seeing men teeing off instead of going to church. “A lot of Sundays, you go by the golf course and they’re really packed,” Lehman said. “We felt like there was an opportunity to take our faith to the fairways and just meet them (golfers) where they’re at and introduce them to the church and ultimately to Jesus Christ.” last_img read more

Klopp taking nothing for granted despite Liverpool lead

first_imgLiverpool, however, have not won the English title in the Premier League era — their last domestic Championship crown came back in 1990.And with Tottenham having hammered Everton, Liverpool’s local rivals, 6-2 on Sunday, Klopp does not expect to have things all his own way during the rest of the season.“You (the media) make these stories about who is in and who is out,” said Klopp.“I saw the game against Everton who played absolutely more than okay and then they (Spurs) hit pretty much everything and it was really impressive how Tottenham did.“The same will happen to Arsenal and Chelsea. No decision is made, why should it be? Nobody should feel safe, no one should feel out of the race. It is not a time to think about it.“For me they (Tottenham) were never out so why should people be surprised they are now in? A lot of teams are in whatever you call the title race and that is how it should be.”The German added: “That is maybe only the difference to last year when pretty much nobody was in any more at this time and that is good for all supporters out there.“Being unbeaten in the league until December is not something I had too often in my life. We did really well so far, and we have to do even better from now on. That’s the challenge for us.”Liverpool fans know only too well that being top at Christmas is no guarantee of the league title.There may have only been two occasions in the past 10 years where the team top on December 25 failed to win the Premier League but in both instances it was Liverpool, in 2008 and 2014, who could not complete the job.Only James Milner among Liverpool’s current squad knows what it’s like to win the Premier League, having been a member of Manchester City’s victorious squads in 2012 and 2014.But Klopp, who won the Bundesliga title with Borussia Dortmund in 2011 and 2012, insisted: “I know that all players who have won the title, at one time it was their first time.“You don’t know what is more important, is it experience, potential, attitude, desire or joy, being completely fresh having never had it before?“Experience is always good if you are young enough to use it. We have to use all experience from the last games, especially from the last season, and that’s much more important.“Character is always very important but with these boys there is no doubt about that because we achieved already in the past big things: finals, good positions in the league.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is taking nothing for granted in the title race © AFP/File / Geoff CADDICKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 24 – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said the fact his side top the Premier League table heading into the busy holiday period counts for little.The Anfield club are four points clear at the summit going into their Boxing Day clash at home to Newcastle, with champions Manchester City second and Tottenham Hotspur six points adrift in third place.last_img read more


first_imgThe news has come through this afternoon of the sad passing of our great friend, Cllr. Tadhg Culbert. Though a native of Tipperary, Tadhg was a Letterkenny man through and through. He was sent to Letterkenny with the P&T as it was back then and spent 40 years as an employee with An Post.Being a keen hurler, he first joined St. Eunan’s as a hurling player in the 70’s. He immersed himself in Letterkenny life, marrying Hilda Flood and becoming a long serving member of Letterkenny Town Council. He was a passionate follower of first Neil T. Blaney before becoming a great friend, supporter and ally to Dr. James McDaid and Fianna Fáil.Over the years he retained a keen interest in sport, in particular Tipperary hurling, St. Eunan’s GAA club, Letterkenny Rovers and the Irish football team. Tadhg was always a generous contributor to St. Eunan’s GAA club from his council bursaries and his unwavering support, and that of his colleagues on Letterkenny Town council in our recent Boundary dispute will long be remembered by our club. Tadhg was known to enjoy a pint and was a regular in Blake’s Bar, McClafferty’s, The Orchard and the Central where there was always a good story and some good, honest advice to be had.He was a good friend, and I will never forget him, I will remember him with a smile on his face.To Hilda, Andrew and Lisa and his wider circle of family and friends, we extend our deepest sympathies.Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. May He Rest In Peace.

first_imgOur Seniors and Reserves played away to Cloughaneely on Saturday afternoon on the final league match of the season.The reserves started brightly and a Sean Rooney goal left them well in control at half-time. The second half was one way traffic and a further goal from Pauric Gormley meant the lads ran out victors to finish of a good season on a scoreline of 2-5 to 0-3.The seniors, playing against a stiff breeze trailed by 7 points mid way through the first half but a mix up in the Cloughaneely defence left Pete Walsh through on goal to cut the deficit. Some great defensive work curbed the Cloughaneely threat for the remainder of the half and Naomh Brid tagged on 2 more points to trail at the break 0-8 to 1-3. A good start to the second half saw Naomh Brid draw level but a Cloughaneely goal followed by a few points put them back in the driving seat.A long range goal from Gary McCafferty left 2 between the sides again and with the lads piling on the pressure they managed to draw level in the last minute but couldn’t get the point to give them the much needed victory.The games concluded the season for both sides and they will be back in Division 3 next season. There was no winner of this weeks lotto jackpot.
