Centershot Ministries is an offshoot of the wildly successful NASP program, created to not only provide similar archery programs through churches, but also to coordinate those programs with Christian and biblical teaching.
A faith-based organization founded and directed by Ray Howell to provide outdoor opportunities for youth.
NASP was formed in 2001 in Kentucky to promote archery as a school activity. In a few short years it has grown to include thousands of schools across the country and around the world. If your school doesn’t have a NASP program, it should.

Members Helping Members
By Ruth Albrecht
On November 12, 2022, Roy Wilson from Racine called me to say that he would like to donate and pass along his recurve bow. Director Greg Prince, who lives in the area, picked the bow up from Roy and gave it to me at our January board meeting. I then contacted Cheryl Braun from the Horicon Marsh Bowmen to see if she knew of anyone that would appreciate this recurve bow. Cheryl knew of a worthy recipient. I handed the bow off to her at Horicon’s WBH Benefit Banquet on February 6th, which Cheryl, her husband and I volunteered at. Cheryl gave the bow to Jason Hensler of the Racine Instinctive Bowmen.
The rest is history and another example of members helping members!
Thank you again Roy for your generous donation!
Following is a letter that I received from Jason. The photo is Jason Hensler and his daughter, Elise.
I wanted to write a note of gratitude regarding the bow that was donated and given to me by Don and Cheryl. I have been a long-time compound bow user and hunter but recently, due to the interest of my daughter, have been adventuring into traditional archery.
I grew up using a hand me down longbow from my grandfather, which sparked my interest in archery and bowhunting. I learned to shoot with that bow and for the last couple of years I, have been teaching both my kids how to shoot with it. It has, however, run its life cycle and I was looking for a recurve or longbow, once again. My daughter is an active competition shooter and hunter with a recurve and compound and was adamant that I get one to go to the traditional competitions around the state with her. I am also interested in using it for bowhunting in the coming seasons.
I really appreciate the donation and please know that it has brought much joy to me and my children. It will have a great home and be treated well so when I am through with it, I will donate it back to another archer looking to get into the sport of traditional archery. Thank you for the commitment you show to our sport and trust that the bow will be well used.
