2023 Annual Clay Shoot Sport Fundraiser


SAVE THE DATE: The annual Clay Shoot Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday morning, October 7, 2023 at Deer Creek Hunt Club in Three Oaks, Michigan.


Divine Hope Reformed Bible Seminary is a unique seminary. In our Eleventh year, Divine Hope provides a seminary program to inmates in four prisons—Indiana State Prison (ISP) in Michigan City, Westville, and Rockville, Indiana, and Danville in Illinois. Plus, we are exploring a wonderful new opportunity at Miami Correction Center in Indiana and hope to have our program on board there this autumn.

The inmate/students at these prisons come with a wide variety of educational and spiritual backgrounds. Divine Hope’s goal is to equip all our students to more effectively minister to their peers and serve Jesus Christ in their prison communities. Divine Hope brings the message of salvation to our students and helps them to grow in their love and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. A number of our students have assumed positions of spiritual leadership inside the prisons and have been better equipped to make the difficult transition back into civilian life.

2020 and 2021 brought many challenges as a result of the pandemic and because of it, the professors were unable to go into the prisons to provide live instruction. Thanks to several prison chaplains, they were able to teach some classes through correspondence courses. In 2022, we have been able to restart our programs within the prisons. We have been able to bring Danville, ISP, Westville and now Rockville back on line with mostly excellent results thus far this year.

Our Seminary has 4 full-time faculty members supported by a 2022 annual budget of over $470,000. Our financial support comes entirely from individuals, churches, and organization donations. The majority of our budget goes directly to the support of our faculty. In a cooperative effort, our fourth faculty member, Rev. Brett Mahlen, is presently being mostly supported by Covenant OP Church in Orland Park, Illinois.

We are having our 8th annual Shooting Sports Fundraiser on Oct. 8 at Deer Creek Hunt Club in Three Oaks, Michigan. Registration and breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. The shooting starts at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. It is a great event and we are expecting to have between 75 and 100 sportsmen to participate this year. Please RSVP Nathan Brummel with the number of shooters by texting him at 616-822-2397 or e-mailing him at
