  4. All, I'm am excited to be bringing this Archery based ministry to my church in Voluntown, Connecticut. My goal is to try to raise $3,200.00 to get this ministry up and running. To date I have raised about $1,500.00 so I'm about $800.00 short of my goal...it is my hope to have these funds raised by mid March, so I can order the required ministry kit, and then schedule the required certification training in April, so I can launch the program in mid May. There are so many positives that can come of this...not only will we be able to bring more people to the sport of Archery, This isn't just for kids, but for adults as well, it can bring families together, and allow everyone to participate, and share with them the word of God. I don't know where any of you are in your faith, and it's none of my business that is between you and God, and I'm not going to pass any judgment on anyone based on their belief or lack there-of. If God puts it on your heart to made a donation to this ministry, please send your donation to: Voluntown Baptist Church 52 Main St Voluntown, CT 06351 (Any amount would be graciously appreciated!) If paying by check, please write "Centershot" in the memo section of the check, if submitting cash, please include a note indicating "Centershot" so the donation will go to the correct place. A little about Centershot: Centershot Ministries is an interdenominational outreach ministry that uses the life-skill of archery as a tool that assists the local church to reach its' community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Mission and Vision: To provide the local church with a tool that will HELP evangelize, disciple, mentor and grow its church family. To inspire, serve and partner with, the local church to grow God's Kingdom in the local community.

I have been in contact with a Church in Rhode Island that currently has a Centershot program, and we are looking forward to getting together with that church to have some friendly competition between each other. I'd really like to see more churches bring this ministry to their community! Please watch this video: and then if you want to know more click on the link below. To learn more about Centershot: www.centershotministries.org I'd really like to challenge some of you other men to take a look at this, and consider bringing it to your church, what a great way to get involved not only with your church but with your community, and it can also shed a positive light on the sport of archery...if you need any help please feel free to give me a call.
