On behalf of the IADC Houston Chapter, I am
excited to announce the Ninth Annual IADC Houston Chapter Oilfield Charity
Shoot. This yearís shoot will be held March 8, 2019 at American Shooting
Centers. Now is the time to start planning to participate in this exciting
This year, the proceeds from the Oilfield
Charity Shoot will help fund the IADC Houston Chapter Scholarship Program, as
well as the Oilfield Christian Fellowship (OCF), two outstanding organizations
that directly benefit the oilfield, its workers and their families.
The Oilfield Christian Fellowship began in
May 1991 as an outlet for Christians in the oilfield to meet each other. The
OCF has evolved into many more forms of outreach, including a Bible ministry,
Prayer Breakfasts, a Bible APP and Bible Studies. Oil workers have carried over
300,000 Bibles in 52 languages to 67 countries around the world. Of those, over
250,000 are custom Oil Patch Bibles written in English, Spanish, Chinese and
Portuguese. The long-term goal is to reproduce this unique Bible, Godís Word
for the Oil Patch, Fuel for the Soul into every language in the world where
there is an oil and gas presence.
Because of your generous support, the IADC
Houston Chapter was able to donate a total of $33,500 last year, bringing our
total lifetime contributions to $318,250. I hope you will join our efforts
again, as we expect this yearís event to build on our past success.
As we did in previous years, each team will
be eligible to win one pistol per team (two pistols per team for Platinum
sponsors) as door prizes. We believe it is important to give back to
participants in addition to the charities.
I hope you will join our efforts again this
year and take pride in helping us support our scholarship recipients and these
two worthy organizations.
