MTM'S Annual Golf Outing

Mel Trotter Ministries does more than you think. Each year, we impact the lives of over 5,000 individuals and families through our powerful and personalized programs. By golfing this year, you will help our guests take the next step in building a better future.

Transforming Lives

“Without MTM, I don’t know where I would be, but definitely not in the great position I am now socially, economically, spiritually, and physically,” said Sidney. “There isn’t anything they fall short of in meeting guests’ needs.”


Sidney once had it all— a successful flooring business, a six-figure salary, a home in a gated community, a beautiful wife. He lost everything, however, when a serious injury sidelined him for two years and started him on a path to nowhere.
