About Eagles Wings
Eagles Wings Disc Golf is a division of Push The Rock that will carry out the vision and mission of Push The Rock using the emerging sport of disc golf. Although some may be unaware of this sport it is estimated that there are now 2 million disc golfers who play regularly at 4700 courses around the world with 2000 tournaments held annually. Currently there is no major Christian influence within the sport. We look forward to filling this void, and plan to launch several exciting initiatives in 2015.
So how do we plan to fill this void? We have settled on four areas of focus, and look forward to sharing specific details in the very near future. These focus areas include:
- We mentor and disciple youth, adults and families by creating opportunities to learn, play, and compete in the sport of disc golf.
- We seek opportunities to bless the existing disc golf community.
- We connect Christian disc golfers around the world, and provide training on how to use the sport of disc golf as a ministry avenue.
- We help churches, ministries, and missionaries build courses and utilize them for ministry.
Eagles Wings Disc Golf is headed up by full-time staff member Dustin Leatherman, his wife Hannah Leatherman, and full-time staff member Jim Schultz. All three compete professionally, and have a passion to use their gifts and abilities to do ministry. Hannah is currently the 6th rated female player in the world, and Jim has been competing at a high level for 15 years. Jim will also bring valuable experience in course design and disc golf mission trips to the team.
