About Us

Mission & Vision

Our Mission is to encourage and equip men to get a daily G.R.I.P. on God's Word and connect to an authentic community through the game of golf.

 Proverbs 3:5-6  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."

Our Vision is to make disciples that will have an impact for Christ in their home, at work, and on the course.

 Matthew 28:19-20 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commended you."


Our City Strategy

For many years In His Grip hosted events throughout the South, primarily partnering with churches to provide effective outreach opportunities. Though impactful, these events were single touchpoints that did not foster a long-term community of men.

In 2018, In His Grip shifted its focus to a "city strategy". This approach now enables In His Grip to go deep in a metro area, offering numerous connection points. In this way, men engage multiple ways across many months, nurturing true community with like-minded men. Friendships are formed, and hearts are changed.

Nashville is our current model city. As we introduce, execute, learn, and recreate, we are mapping how we then take In His Grip to other cities. Stay tuned for announcements on future homes for In His Grip.


In His Grip is blessed to have generous corporate friendships. Not only are the following companies helpful in supporting our ministry, they share our values and encourage us as we strive toward our vision.
