Benefit Golf Tournament

Like us on

In 2022, the Mobile Baptist Association (MBA) is celebrating 50 years of ministry to Seafarers visiting the Port of Mobile. In 1972, the MBA adopted the International Seamen’s Ministry in cooperation with the Alabama State Board of Missions and the then Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Thank you so everyone who helped make the 10th Annual International Ministries Benefit Golf Tournament a huge success!

This year’s tournament raised $12,458, which is $200+ more than last year.

International Ministries depends on tournament and hole sponsors to help raise funds for ministries’ two areas of emphasis:

  • International Churches which help us minister to the 74 plus different language groups that live in Mobile
  • Seafarers Ministry – Outreach ministry to seafarers on the 1,600 plus ships that trade through the Port of Mobile every year

We are grateful to Rev. Art Burroughs and Rev. James Mercer for organizing and leading this important benefit.
