The Tracy Hanson Initiative

After retiring from professional golf, Tracy embarked on a new journey—ministering to other people by unpacking her own story of overcoming harm and abuse and embracing her beauty as a woman of God—getting “out of the rough.” Christ’s redemptive work in Tracy’s life has given birth to her speaking and ministry activities.

  • “Tracy has a beautiful way of communicating the message of the kingdom! Her willingness to be transparent draws people in and gives them a real sense that God is both alive and available. It's simple, really—folks see Jesus when they encounter Tracy Hanson!”  

    Jeffrey Cranford President, Links Players International
  • “Tracy Hanson is a transparent speaker who gently but effectively penetrates the hearts of her listeners. She skillfully invites others to embrace a God-view of their lives and to more fully enjoy a personal relationship with Christ.”    

    Debbie Frazer Mary Kay Independent Sales Director
  • "Tracy has been a welcome guest at our weekly fellowship several times over the last three years. Her willingness to share her story in such an open manner became the impetus for other women to open up about their personal journeys. It’s exciting to see what God has planned for her as she builds her relationship with the Links Fellowship.

    Pam Carlson Links Fellowship Leader
  • “Tracy's story of redemption will leave you encouraged and inspired to give your whole heart and complete trust in our Lord. You will walk away from Tracy with a renewed and refreshed faith.”

    Tanya Magnus Executive Director, Choose to Soar Ministries 

MISSION

To equip and train athletes—and those who are instrumental in their success—through mentorship, retreats, small group experiences, and speaking engagements, empowering them to live and play sports with purpose, passion, and hope.

VISION

To see athletes awakened to the true measure of success that lies beyond their performance and is discovered in the uniqueness of their own story and in authentic relationship with others.

PURPOSE

To provide a safe, confidential environment where athletes and sports chaplains can talk honestly about the pain and harm they have experienced in their lives for the purpose of embracing their dignity and worth apart from their performance.

Ladies Ministry Director

Tracy also serves in the role of Ladies Ministry Director for Links Players International. Through the efforts of Links Players, there are nearly two hundred Links Fellowships thriving at golf clubs and courses across the United States and in affiliated areas around the world. When men and women meet in these Fellowships, they study the Bible together, investigating its content as it points to salvation in Jesus Christ. They also pray together for individual and corporate needs. Outside the time of discussion and prayer, groups may do service projects in their area. And of course, they often enjoy golf together.

While these Fellowships are facilitated by local leaders, they are not alone. Our regional staff members are available to assist leaders by email, phone, and in person. Additionally, we provide a wide variety of Bible study resources from which leaders can choose. At Links Players, we want to do all we can to equip people to minister to one another at the local level, where personal contact is made and relationships for spiritual growth are born and developed over time.
