On September 12, 2019, we started out with a simple goal: to give Glory and Honor to God while playing disc golf.
We had to ask a lot of questions; one of the biggest ones being were we a group of disc golfers that happened to be Christians or a group of Christians that happened to be disc golfers?
We affirmed to be the latter and out of that developed a brand whose mission was to proclaim that we are passionate about disc golf, discipleship, and Christian fellowship.
We started meeting and playing weekly; we developed a name, which became a brand, and then has now become a ministry.
As we have been growing, we have wanted to achieve viability so we have tracked donations and have confirmed that we can be viable long term, but in doing so we have begun to take the next step and structure as a non-profit with tax exemptions and as a 501(c)(3) organization in order to grow this ministry to the place where we faithfully believe God has ordained it to grow.
In order to continue along this trajectory, we will need additional funding to make it possible. Our local chapters that meet weekly run on a shoestring budget by not charging to play as traditional clubs do, but instead asking for an annual bag tag donation. We also offer fundraising items for sale on our store website as the ministry grows and in an effort to build community.
Many have asked about how they could help the ministry in tangible ways. We prayerfully believe that the next step for the ministry is to continue to grow as a non-profit and a 501(c)(3); this is an area that we could use your assistance with to achieve these goals.
If able to do so, please consider giving financially to the ministry of Discin’ Disciples whether it is a one-time donation or a recurring one and share with others that would be willing to give as well. If you cannot give at this time, then please continue to pray for our ministry. God Bless!
