Missoula Youth For Christ is putting on its annual Golf Challenge at the Ranch Club on May 8th. This event is benefiting the outreach ministry of Missoula YFC Juvenile Justice Ministry. The cost is $500 per team OR $125 per individual, with 100% of proceeds going to underwrite programs and kids in the ministry! 

 

Locked Up
I want to be outside
Smell the fresh air
And see the mountainside
Being taught anything
Watch and listen
And learn many things
But I can't in jail
Trying to find someone
To help with my bail
It's like no one cares
Lost in their thoughts
They know I'm scared
                      -“Aaron"
 

JJM seeks to serve kids who are "Locked Up" like "Aaron." Kids who often feel at a very young age that being "Locked Up" just may be the only way of life for them. They struggle to identify people in their lives to show them anything other than a life of inconsistency, drugs and crime, so most of them long for their 18th birthday as some hope of freedom in the midst of their chaos. But at 12:01 a.m. on their 18th birthday, will that be the switch that's flipped to erase their record and give them a fresh start - a new life? Or is it a sense of impending doom? The start of the rest of their lives being nothing but "Locked Up"?

Our aim is to show consistent love and truth that we pray leads incarcerated teens to a longing and hope far greater than 12:01 a.m. could ever bring. Thank you for being a part of transformation for kids like “Aaron."

 

This year's JJM Benefit Golf Tournament will be an Extended Play format, while remaining a four-person scramble. What does that mean?

  • You must register a team by May 8th. (See link below)
  • Then, play at your convenience between May 9th and July 23rd! We only need a team captain and payment at the time of registration, so you still have time to recruit players.
