This is my friend and teammate Evan from Untitled Skateboards…
The Big God Conference went amazing! I was a little nervous because I had to fly through the night to get to Myrtle Beach. I got on stage and felt great with a little jet lag, but as always the Lord gave me the words to say. It had been a while since I had been in front of a rather large crowd in the 1000′s. The students seemingly were stoked and even blessed me with a standing Ovation. Glory to God!
Thanks for your prayers.
Before I fly out to speak and skate @ “The Big God Conference” in Myrtle Beach, I would like to share about this ministry called Jesus Pizza. It is as simple as picking up 20 pizzas putting them in my trunk, and heading to the High School up the street from our house. This is being led by some of the most mature focused Senior High students that I have ever met. These kids have encouraged me so much with their passion for Jesus & commitment to seeing this ministry done well. Instead of me speaking every week, a different student leader gives the talk, and then I come in with the invite to receive Christ. I just cannot express how awesome this mission is turning out to be. Please pray for these students.
Please pray for my wife & I as we commit ourselves to this weekly role in encouraging these young leaders. Thank you!
Happy New Year!
Congrats to Matthew Smithies on getting the most votes for the “Hardest Flip Trick” contest. He is our official winner! A huge thanks to Joe Moore & Kyle Kraus for posting their fliptrick insanity as well. I was impressed by each of these clips. Keep ripping guys!
Prizes will be sent out soon.
God bless & Merry Christmas!
I had the honor of being the guest speaker for chapel at the Luis Palau Accociation yesterday. I was able to share my new mini documentary on 10 years in skate ministry. I’m blessed that Dr. Palau was there to listen in.
I was also able to obtain this photo that was on display there in the office of myself & Steven Baldwin. This was shot during the filming of Livin It, 2003. I was more stoked the day of this pic, because my future wife was on set with me. Oh the memories.
God is awesome!
This past week I was invited to speak at a huge event in New England called Overtime. Even though many gave their lives to Jesus, I feel that every time I’m in front of people speaking, that I minister out of my weakness.
When Moses objected to God at the burning bush, that he was a clumsy speaker, God did not disagree with him. The Lord did not say “Not true, Moses, I’ve heard you speak and you inspire me! You’re going places as a preacher!” God said “I will be with your mouth and teach you what you are to speak” (EX 4:12).
Be faithful with what God has called you to do.
Here is the trailer to the movie Hardflip, in which I have a small part in. Please pray that many will give their lives to Jesus through this humble effort.
