Rock Of Ages Festival, Calistoga CA.

It was another great weekend to share the love of Jesus in the Napa Valley at Rock Of Ages Festival. I’ve been doing this event since 2001.
I get stoked each year to hang out with my good friends Vic Murphy, John Andrus and Paul Covey.  These guys travel the world and share the Gospel through BMX bike stunt shows. They are the real deal for the Lord.
Thank you for praying!

My favorite night of the week and the hardest night of the week. Thank you for praying for the ministry.

“They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.”
2 Timothy 4:4-5

A few weeks back I had the privilege to hang out with one of my favorite skate ministry guys and fellow teammate Mike Steinkamp
I’m so stoked and encouraged by this young brothers faithfulness to the Gospel. He’s  also one of the nicest dudes you could ever meet.

The Church being the Church

I am honored that this church in Martinsville, Indiana has invited me back three years in a row. After I got done speaking this morning the elders prayed for Liz and I and our ministry at home. It’s awesome to have such a large church family throughout the U.S. and the world.

As I was flying to Indianapolis this morning, I was reminded of my first solo ministry trip here back in 2001. God is faithful and it’s cool to see how He links things together as I look back.

Quick Story:
I remember arriving here by taking the Greyhound from Rolla, MO.
At this time I was extremely green when it came to travel and logistics. I was just stoked to go places, skate and do ministry.
I arrived that afternoon and my fellow teammate drove over from the east coast to do the demo with me as well.
The deal was, he was supposed to drive me down to Columbus, GA that night so that we could join our team for the busy summer tour season. I honestly didn’t even know that I was supposed to get paid that day either :)
Well at the end of our demo and ministry time, my friend took the check and left me stranded there without communicating his plan, (this was before I had a cel phone too). While my friend peaced out and left, I was inside the venues green room meeting a new band called Pillar who I became fast friends with at the time because one of the members skated. When the host “promoter” whose ministry was then called Fire Proof found out what had happened, they felt bad for me and disappointed in my teammate for bailing out and leaving me stranded.
I remember that night, the ministry team took me out to an amazing dinner and then booked me a room in the presidential suite of their hotel. The next day they prayed for me and slipped me some extra cash and put me on a bus to Columbus, GA.
At the time I sincerely took this all in stride and kept a good undeserving grateful attitude. Sometimes I miss that attitude btw :)
That ministry that helped me and hosted this event would later become known as XXXChurch.
The founder Craig Gross and his staff will never know how much that impacted me as a young follower of Christ. That gesture encouraged me to know that I could step out in faith and the Lord will always provide a way. Even when others let you down weather it’s intentional or not, God wants our complete dependence upon Him. It’s experiences like these that shaped my faith and trust in the Lord.
I just thought I’d share a random travel story. My guys at Skatechurch hear so many of these war stories of mine, so I thought I’d post one :)

Be Encourged And Trust God.

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Tonight this verse speaks to me. I wake up at 3am to fly out to do ministry and partner with a great little church community in Indiana. While packing up I got an overwhelming sense of uncertainty about how i’m spending my life and thinking if what i’m doing means anything. I could give a ton of details here, but I’d rather say what my wife told me tonight. “Let GOD be magnified over your problems and seek Him in prayer”. “Don’t let your problems be magnified or given more attention than God”. Seek Him and pray, even when there are no words. I hope this encourages you and reminds you to seek the Lord and magnify Him wherever you are at right now. Liz made this too.

Colville, WA

I flew up to the small town of Colville, WA to skate and share the Gospel yesterday night. There is nothing better than playing a small role in somebody’s life in their response to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus!

Day In The Park 2015

I was stoked to be invited back again this year to “Day In The Park” hosted by my friends at Revolution Church.
This is a tight knit church that reaches the hood in SE Portland and continues to love their community outside the four walls. They give away a free all day event that is Christ centered and filled with the Gospel every Labor Day for the past 10years.
Today, I had the opportunity to pray for a young guy that was addicted to heroin & meth and desperately wanted God to set him free from addiction.
This is the guy that God had for me today to minister to right after I got off stage.
He is still on my mind and I’m hoping that he is in a good place tonight and transformed forever.
Thank you for praying and supporting our ministry.
I’m flying out in the morning to speak at a church in northern Washington.
Please continue pray!

Woodlands Church. Houston TX

It was a great night at Woodlands Church in Houston, TX. The Spirit of the living God was encountered by many students that had never been to church before or had heard the Gospel.
It’s another one of those Glory to God moments that I can never explain or write about. It was an awesome night!
Thank you for praying friends.

Allen, Texas

I was stoked to partner with new friends and old ones as we skated and shared the Gospel of Jesus at Edge Skatepark in Allen, TX. It was a hot day and we had hundreds of kids show up to participate in the contests to rip it up. I have to admit, this was by far the hottest demo I’ve skated in a while. That pic of me with the mic is when I’d gotten done skating and felt like passing out due to the heat. My friend Brian Sumner shared his story and the Gospel and a few kids came forward in response to following Jesus! My friend Mike Steinkamp was there too and he and I walked around praying for kids one on one. Mike is the future of skate ministry and if you don’t know him, go to God is good, thank you for your prayers and support for this ministry that the Lord so graciously provided.
