Hey fellow Cru golfers!

I hope all is well with you and that you are experiencing the blessings that can only come from our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I wanted to share a few ideas about sponsorship for Cru Golf Challenge.

After the kick off breakfast I was so fired up! I decided this year to keep that enthusiasm going by sending out sponsorship information right away. The first thing I always do before sending out any communication whether by phone call, email or snail mail is is to take a moment to pray and ask God for his guidance and that I would trust in His sovereignty.

Then I started by contacting all of the people that sponsored me last year and wrote each one a personal note of thanks along with giving them the links necessary to support Cru again this year. This starts me off on a positive note because I start getting replies and sponsorship notifications almost right away and this motivates me to start working on a new list of contacts each year.

The next step for me is to start contacting people that I sent messages to in previous years that I didn’t get a reply to. It only takes a minute or two but I always try to personalize a few sentences at the beginning so the communication doesn’t come across as being too much of a form letter. I also work from my address book in email for new contacts and pray that God would place names of people and business in my mind that I should contact.

Lastly, that I would boldly proclaim that this isn’t about me, but that it’s about reaching a lost and hurting world with the good news of Christ.

May God bless you in all that you are doing to build His kingdom. In His mighty, holy and precious name,

  1. Great post Kevin! I am eager to get started on my emails as well. Pray – last year’s sponsors – other past sponsors – everyone else – because it’s not about me, it’s about changing lives! Now with this and Renae’s facebook post last week I will be at the $2500 mark in no time!

    “FORE” the kingdom!
