About Us

We want to partner with you to reach outdoor enthusiasts for Christ with a Wild Game Event experience.

Trophies of Grace Northern Division is based on the original Trophies of Grace ministry headquartered in Pensacola, Florida. Jim Panetti, an avid Christ follower and outdoorsman from Wisconsin, met Jim Porter in 2010. The Porter family was actively partnering with pastors and churches in southern United States with their Trophies of Grace display and speaking engagements. Jim Panetti envisioned replicating this ministry in Wisconsin and neighboring northern states. With blessings and encouragement from the Porters, Jim opened Trophies of Grace Northern Division in 2011.

Trophies of Grace exists to glorify God by serving and partnering with pastors and local churches and ministries in their outreach ministries to reach the outdoor enthusiast. Many sportsmen may never choose to attend a typical church service, but would come to see a display of world-class bucks. Through a Trophies of Grace display and speaker, or a speaker you provide, our goal is to deliver an interesting, enthusiastic, and clear evangelical message that will inspire Christians and present a salvation opportunity to those who are lost

This amazing display of world-class trophy whitetail deer presents a unique event that can reach those who may never attend a typical church service.

The Trophies of Grace display is not solely about the deer or animal mounts, but rather the changed lives of those who accept Christ. We believe God has given us this unique opportunity to partner with you in order to win the lost. We want to partner with you in sharing the good news of Christ to the literally millions of deer hunters across the north central united states. Our purpose is to assist churches and ministries in reaching their communities with the saving message of Jesus Christ. Trophies of Grace Northern Division operates as a 501c(3) non-profit organization. We accept donations to help us save the lost through our inspiring presentations.
