Dan Curtis (Bill failed to call to participate, sorry, Dan)
General. Thankful to have each of the Brothers present, including, Don Midgett, Chair of the Board for CGA, and Dan Curtis who was to participate on the cell phone, but, Bill failed to reconnect with him.
The general tenor of the meeting was Spirit led as our discussion centered around the calling to conduct this MINISTRY in order to further His Kingdom within our community and throughout our golf connections.
We reviewed the format for conducting CGA ministry and launched into ...
Church outreach. Bill shared the experience with the leadership of New Vision Baptist Church in Murfreesboro and their acceptance/commitment to engage with CGA Nashville by participating in an Ambassador event and, possibly, hosting an Invitational. This led to a discussion about other churches and the conduct of an Ambassador Outing specifically for Pastors and others who might be encouraged to attend. March 18th was identified as the projected date for that Pastors Ambassador outing.
Scott Thomas mentioned several other churches he felt he could invite to participate in the Ambassador Outing. Ray Pearce mentioned 3rd Baptist and Terry Fields reviewed his connection with a few pastors as well. Bill mentioned his blogging with Lifeway Men and Ron's interaction with the TN Southern Baptist Convention and how a few pastor names may come out of that. We agreed to the March date and will continue to pray and plan for that date.
Invitationals. With New Vision on board, April would be the month where an Invitational event could be hosted through them. Stones River CC was mentioned as the location of choice because of Brady Cooper's connection with the head pro, Rob McGill. Don Midgette and Scott Keegan are both members of SRCC as well, so that fits nicely into the scenario. Bill attempted to reserve that date with Rob McGill, but, could not contact him today.
We have put a trial schedule together that includes the following dates;

Continued Information from CGA Nashville Leadership Meeting.
We reviewed our "Tasks" from the last meeting... (will get serious on this next meeting. lol)
a. Identify your golfer to caddie. "Do you have one?" Who will it be?
b. Recruit one more leader. "Have you done that?" Will you?
c. Determine who to contact in your church. "Please!!"
d. Determine another golfer committed to Christ who may want to implement in their church. "Pretty Please!!"
e. Promote in your social media.... Here is how we do that;
What Social Media do you use the most or at all? Facebook, Twitter, email, Instagram or, others? This is what you copy and paste into an update in your social media or email;
