Golf Outing
Story Team

Playing golf and raising funds for the Timothy Christian athletic program on a beautiful autumn day…it doesn’t get much better than that—and we do it every year, even this one! The 2020 Timothy Christian Golf Outing & Athletic Fundraiser certainly looked different this year but we adapted, pushed forward, and thanks be to God — we still fulfilled our mission and set a new fundraising record. 

Our commitment to grow and inspire our students in a well-rounded, Biblically-rooted educational environment compels us to take athletics, arts and other extracurricular activities just as seriously as we do our academics. We feel these programs are equally important training grounds for our students, to develop servant leaders who fully live out their purpose in the world for Christ.  Whether winning or losing, practicing or competing— students have the opportunity to mature in Christ-like character, relationships, and physical, emotional and spiritual endurance. We believe athletics is an outstanding tool which helps enable us to cultivate these important life skills.  

We had a three-way tie between Team Ryan Brandsma, Team Josh Brandsma, & Team Laslo.  Congratulations to our 2020 winning foursome, who won with the scorecard tie breaker: Ryan Brandsma, Tim Hoving, Erik Hagstrom & Josh Molnar

We are reminded, especially this year, that these are exceptional teaching moments we have with our student athletes that we don’t want to miss out on. No matter what life brings, our God is good, He is in control and our hope is in Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

We are rejoicing and giving thanks in 2020 as we’ve set another golf outing record! Praise God! On September 18, 2020 we gathered at Seven Bridges Golf Club in Woodridge, IL with 200 golf participants, twenty volunteers, and ninety generous sponsors and “Friends of Timothy” raising an all-time high amount of $200,000.00. The proceeds from this event help fund much of our middle school and high school athletic needs. Timothy Christian’s athletic program and facilities are among the very best! And our annual golf outing propels this commitment to excellence in a very practical way. 

If you’re interested in learning more about how you can be a part of the Timothy Christian Golf Outing & Athletic Fundraiser in the future, please contact Bob Venhousen at We’re always looking for more help! Special thanks to our many volunteers and Golf Committee members who made this year’s event possible: Jami Brighty, Julie Davidson- Co-chair, Matt Davidson, Steve DeBoer, Jay Evenhouse, Brad Huiner, Jack LeGrand, Jim Marshall, Rob Orange, Chris Valdez, Tyler VanderBrug, Matt Venhousen & Robert Venhousen- Chair.

We can’t thank our sponsors & participants enough for coming out in support of the Timothy Christian athletic program this year. Watching our community rally around our student-athletes was incredible to see and has never been more important as we navigate through the unfamiliar of 2020.
