Who We Are
Eagles Wings wants to train and mentor young players while providing a connection point for Christian disc golfers.
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 more than 2 million disc golfers who play regularly at 8,000 courses around the world with 4,000 tournaments held annually. Currently there is no major Christian influence within the sport. We look forward to filling this void, and have launched 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 assists in the promotion and implementation of programs. Jim Schultz, from Michigan is a full-time staff member as the head of the Midwest Region. All three compete professionally, and have a passion to use their gifts and abilities to do ministry. Jim also brings valuable experience in course design and disc golf mission trips to the team.
Eagles Wings Disc Golf is in the process of developing regions with a full-time staff member in each place. Currently, the ministry has 4 people in the fundraising process to be full-time. Regions are being developed in the Northwest, West, Southeast, and Mid-Atlantic with future members of the team residing in Oregon, Colorado, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
