 In General, Ministry Village

Save the date for this year’s 5th Annual Ministry Village Clay Shoot, and this year’s event promises even more excitement!

Professional clay pigeon shooter Gebben Miles

Our 5th annual fundraiser for the Charis House and the programs of Ministry Village at Olive will be a 2-day event and feature a special guest – multi-time professional tour, world and national champion shooter Gebben Miles! On Friday, October 8 at 5:30 PM, Gebben will do a shooting demonstration at the Santa Rosa Shooting Center. Then, as the sun sets, participants will enjoy a catfish dinner, catered by Olive Catering, as Gebben shares his testimony and life lessons from the world of professional shooting.

On Saturday, October 9, the tournament kicks off at Santa Rosa Shooting Center with registration at 7:30 AM and the safety meeting at 8:30 AM. Shooting will begin at 9:00 AM. Gebben will be on hand throughout the day to shoot mulligans. Lunch, door prizes, tournament awards, and a raffle will all immediately follow the tournament.

Dr. Stephen Newsome, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Ministry Village at Olive, is looking forward to this year’s event because of its purpose. “The annual Clay Shoot provides a fun way for us to share the work of Ministry Village with our community, and provide an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. The work done at the Charis House is life-changing and life-saving. But it takes resources to support that work. It costs about $1,600 each month to provide housing, shelter, and program support for just one woman. Each woman commits to a minimum of 1 year in the program, so the costs add up quickly. This fundraiser is a wonderful way to support Ministry Village.”

So, mark your calendars for October 8th & 9th and start assembling your sharp-shooting team! Sponsorships are now available, and registration will open soon. Contact Jeremy Portmann, Executive Director of Ministry Village at Olive, to learn how you can sponsor the Clay Shoot and make a difference in lives right here in our community!
