I shared a story last night at Skatechurch about the time I was booked by a cult out in the woods of Alabama. Yep, true story!
I had the privilege of sharing the Gospel last night at Skatechurch’s “18 and up” session with around 40 young men.
I’m blown away by what the Lord is allowing us to do in this place as well as the guys that are coming and listening with respect.
There is nothing like preaching Christ crucified to group of guys that nobody else is reaching with the Gospel.
The Holy Spirit brings conviction and is moving mightily at Skatechurch. I was able to talk with several guys afterwards and one guy named Cory is getting baptized on Sunday.
Please keep praying!
Each night we reach a different age group with the Gospel of Jesus at Skatechurch. Seeing this picture from one of our “pee wee” nights, brings so much joy to my heart. This is is such a great a ministry to be a part of.
I often need that reminder from Matt: 18 when the disciples asked Jesus about who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. This is how Jesus answered them.
“And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
It has been a great weekend at Lakeside Camp in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I’m thankful for my friends with Faith 2 Faith Ministries for having be a part of this exciting weekend.
I love being able to share the Gospel of Jesus and skateboard.
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do and God will establish your plans.
Thank you for praying!
A couple of prayer requests.
I’m flying out to Massachusetts this morning to partner with some great friends to do an outreach at a particular camp for the next 3 days. Please pray for our strength and that we would be faithful to what the Lord wants to do in and through us.
I am stoked that this week we are back at Skatechurch after the winter break. Please keep us in your prayers that our personal finances would come in to cover our basic needs so that we can continue this great work in 2016.
Thank you friends for your prayers and support. Here are some fun photos from our ministry nights.
Pee Wee session!
18 and up !
High School !
I’m headed to the beach for 3 days with my bride. We are both back to work on Tues. and Skatechurch starts back up for 2016. I’m also flying to New Jersey at the end of the week to skate and speak at a camp. Please pray for our dependency on the Lord and not ourselves.
Quick update:2015 was a good year!I was able to travel and speak at over 30 different outreaches and share the good news of Jesus with around 500,000 people if I include that one appearance on the TBN channel.It’s a joy to serve at Skatechurch and to have trusted leaders in place so that I can be available to go to other parts of the country to do ministry work.Please pray that we can continue to make Skatechurch a place that is free of charge for 2016. At years end we were avg. 150 skaters a week that were hearing the Gospel of Jesus.

Here is a throwback pic of Skatechurch in 1987 and its parking lot beginnings at Central Bible Church.
We are closing out another great ministry year for 2015. This year we’re reaching 150+ skaters per week with the good news of Jesus. Thank you for your prayers and support.
I love skating and sharing the Word of God with these guys every week for High School sesh @skatechurchpdx.
Happy Thanksgiving my friends.
“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:57
A few months back we were praying for one of our High School rippers to be healed up from a skateboarding accident that almost cost him his life.
Now here is Merari Paz sharing his story about how God showed him that the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus; Romans 6:23!
This was possibly the most impactful night we had at Skatechurch this year.
I am so proud of this young man and his bold stand for the Word and his drive to live it out and be real as he grows in the Lord.
Please keep praying for more of this to happen at Skatechurch!
Thank you friends.
