What is Men’s Golf Fellowship?
Men’s Golf Fellowship (MGF) was formed in 2003 to help address the spiritual needs of golf friends. Men are open to learning about a personal relationship with God, especially when they take a fresh look at all aspects of their lives. Many of the men now involved want to explore questions related to personal faith but don’t necessarily have another forum to do so. MGF provides that opportunity.
What is Our Mission?
The purpose of MGF is to create awareness and opportunities for hearing from and growing with golf friends who have made Christ a central part of their personal and professional lives. This is accomplished through breakfast meetings, fellowship groups and other fellowship venues. Our motto, Growing in Faith With Golf Friends, captures our mission.
During certain times of the year (depending on location), we provide weekly or monthly opportunities for MGF men to invite friends to enjoy a full buffet breakfast at a local golf club for warm fellowship and to hear an inspirational speaker who shares how faith has worked in his life. These speakers have included PGA and Senior Tour golfers; professional sports figures; CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies; popular writers; influential economists; renowned physicians; military leaders; US Senators and Governors; and others noted for outstanding accomplishments in their professional fields.
Some locations hold banquets for MGF men and their wives. These are for introducing new friends to MGF, hearing a great speaker, building fellowship and involving wives. They are a great time!
MGF Fellowship Groups
Breakfast and banquet guests expressing interest in growing further in their spiritual lives have the opportunity to participate in an MGF Fellowship Group. These meet in various clubs of MGF chapter areas. MGF Groups are central and critical to the achievement of our mission, as they provide a forum for men to discuss and explore God and Life Issues with other men. These are open and honest discussions, which are free to go in a variety of directions. We finish with a brief presentation of what God’s Word has to say about the topic at hand and conclude with prayer. View MGF Groups
About Our Logo
Our logo is a variation of the Chi Rho symbol. The Chi Rho is a Christian symbol for “Christ” written by superimposing the two Greek letters “Chi (X)” and “Rho (P)” which are the first two letters in Greek of the name of “CHRist.” In our case, the Chi (X) is the crossed golf clubs and the Rho (P) is the golf flag. Alpha (Α) and Omega (Ω) are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, and a title of Christ and God in the Book of Revelation, referring to Him as the “Beginning” and the “End.”
