ALEXANDRIA, VA -- The 3rd annual InterFaith (iFaith) Golf Tournament has been scheduled for April 16, and will once again be held at the beautiful Lake Presidential Golf Club in Upper Marlboro, Md.
Last year's event attracted an assortment of area churches who competed for the coveted iFaith Golf Cup and through their participation, a check for $1,000 was presented to the Capital Area Food Bank.
"We are thrilled that our last tournament allowed us to make a meaningful contribution toward the hard work that is being done by the Capital Area Food Bank," said tournament founder Lou Phillips.
The Tournament is designed to foster inter-denominational fellowship and stewardship.
"The game of golf is a perfect way of getting individuals to spend quality time together and thus encourage deep abiding fellowship," said the Rev. Dr. James L. Graham , honorary chairman, and pastor of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Herndon, Va
Dr. Graham has a passion for international missions. He has been privileged to proclaim the Gospel in 26 different countries. Under his leadership, Mount Pleasant Baptist Church has established partnerships in thirteen countries, including Russia, Haiti, Kenya, Nigeria, India, Sudan, Benin, Ghana, and Liberia.
Graham is a native of Sumter, SC, and the son of Gardenia Graham and the late James L. Graham. He and his wife, Rev. Gloria Graham, have two children, Andrea and James. Dr. Graham is an avid golfer and is equally passionate about the mission of providing assistance to the growing number of people who find themselves suffering from food shortage.
