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.
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).
Had a blessed time this past week @ the ROA Festival in Nor Cal.
It was so good to hang out with several of my close friends doing ministry. With the combined efforts of artists, speakers & athletes. We had the amazing priviledge to share the good news of Jesus with over 8000 people. Thanks for your prayers. God is good!
Did an outreach/demo in Spokane, WA. There was close to 800+students that were part of 12 different youth groups working together to reach their peers. I was invited up to be the main speaker. God used our humble efforts once again with many responding to the good news of Jesus. I had a great time & was stoked that the energy level was so high. Thanks for your prayers.
Me and my good friend Jud Heald,as well as some of the younger members from Untitled Skateboards Alex Vestal & Brett Webber. We were in Wisconsin for a student outreach ministry event. Jud and I tag teamed the Gospel message, and invited kids to give their lives to Jesus. Most Americans remember exactly where they were 10yrs. ago on 9/11. Me and my friend Jud Heald were living outside of Atlanta gearing up for our fall ministry events with Manna Skateboards. A day and time we will never forget. Here we are today still shredding and engaging our culture in the name of Jesus.
Our actions are always in direct relation to what we truly believe.
James 2 : 17,18.
Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
But someone will say, “you have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
If the essence of Christianity is, Christ in us, the hope of glory, than we cannot help but to do the work of Christ and effect the world we live in.
