Tampa Pro Contest!

I’ve travelled all over the world with this guy. I was stoked when Christian Hosoi posted this pic of our radical brother in Christ today on FB.

This is a pic of my good friend and teammate Jud Heald lifting up his board and the Name above all names, JESUS on his board! Forget what you think of X Games, Tampa Pro is the biggest contest “for skateboarding” in the world that is ran by skaters and for skaters. I know that Jud was stoked on the invite back for his 15th year  to compete and glorify God. Way to go Mr.Heald!

My buddy Mike Steinkamp got all creative again and made this cyber gospel track by using popular skate brands/logos. I thought it was really cool.

Help Support Our Ministry

Please pray for us at Skatechurch as we trust the Lord and raise our own financial support as Missionaries in SE Portland.
My role is like any other Pastoral role, except we are in a very poor part of the city reaching Skateboarders with the Gospel. We depend on the Lord as well as the generosity of others from outside these walls to continue reaching these kids with the Gospel.

Will you help financially support our ministry here in Portland?

But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name! (‭1 Peter‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬ NLT)

New Video 2015

Over 500 tries, 3 filming sessions ,1 broken deck and a whole bunch of sloppy landings. I finally landed a Darkslide lipslide 360 flip out. I figured out early on why this trick has never been done before :)                         New video coming soon. I’m thankful for this patient brother and our place of ministry. #Skatechurch

The free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus the Christ.
Skatechurch is now a FREE gift to the skaters in our city and especially to the kids in the hood of SE Portland. Please pray and support our ministry that has led close to 3000 skaters to Jesus since 1987. Thank you friends.

Tricks are for kids……..

I gave the “darkslide/lipslide 360 flip out” another 240 more tries today.
3 sloppy landings, a cracked board and a pulled muscle in my leg is what I got..
In other news 2 guys gave their lives to Jesus last night at Skatechurch! That’s way better than any skateboard trick!
