Adopt a Duffer

Sponsors are needed for some seminarians and seminary supporters who will be playing in the First Annual GPTS Golf Challenge, scheduled for the afternoon of March 14, 2013, following the close of our Spring Theology Conference. The GPTS Golf Challenge will be held at The Preserve at Verdae Greens, a prestigious championship course in Greenville, S.C.

Much like the familiar "walk-a-thon," this tournament features golfers backed by sponsors in an athletic effort  to raise funds for the seminary. Sponsored golfers may enter the tournament for free. Another option is for golfers to simply donate an entrance fee ($150 suggested) to join the fun. We are also looking for businesses (or individuals) to sponsor special tournament contests or the tournament in general. Corporate sponsors will receive free advertising for their businesses.

The day's tournament will be followed by a buffet dinner at the adjacent Embassy Suites Greenville Golf Resort and Conference Center. Guests will have an opportunity to learn more about the ministry and impact of Greenville Seminary. Also at the dinner, prizes will be awarded for top fund-raisers and for various contests which will be featured during the tournament, such as "lowest score," "longest drive" and "closest to the pin."

If you are interested in participating as a Team Captain, Player/Ambassador or sponsor (individual or business), please contact Garry Moes at If you are contacted by one of our Captains or Ambassadors, please give careful consideration to how you might be able to support this "friending and funding" effort.

For conference attendees or other participants who may be coming from a distance, please note that quality golf club sets are available for rental at The Preserve at Verdae.

Let us know whether and how you can participate in or support the tournament. Response form here.
