On July 7, 2014, the Country Club of the North (One Club North Drive, Beavercreek, Ohio) will host a Golf Classic, benefiting Athletes in Action and their ministry to professional athletes. This unique event gives golfers the opportunity to play one of the region’s finest private courses accompanied by current and former professional athletes.

Since 1966, Athletes in Action has been using sports to answer questions of faith. Their ultimate goal is to see people’s lives transformed as they discover God’s purpose for their lives. AIA’s pro ministry provides volunteer chaplains for NFL, MLS and WNBA teams so that these elite athletes are exposed to the hope of the gospel and have opportunities to be developed in their personal faith.

Special guests will include:

R.J. Stanford, cornerback for the Cincinnati Bengals
Dave Wannstedt, former head coach of the Chicago Bears (1993-1998), Miami Dolphins (2000-2004) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2005-2010)
André Davis, former wide receiver and kick returner with the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans
Jeremy Kelley, former wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts
John St. Clair, former lineman with the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns
Tuff Harris, former NFL and Canadian Football League defensive back
Kim Anthony, former world-class gymnast (six-time All-American and four-time national champion at UCLA) and celebrated author and public speaker

“The Athletes in Action pro staff have been a significant contributor to my life from the time I was a player for the Steelers, an assistant coach with the Vikings and when I first became head coach of the Buccaneers,” says former Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy.

“Unfortunately, my schedule will not allow me to attend the Golf Classic this year, but I do plan to make it next year. I am even considering making it a regular part of my yearly schedule. I believe in the mission that strongly,” he adds.
