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.
We saw a lot of kiddos and a few parents say yes to following Jesus the other night at Harvest Jam in Warren, OR. I’m very thankful for opportunities like these, especially when I can bring one of our Highschool guys from Skatechurch to see and hear how other communities do outreach.
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
Psalm 73:26 NIV
We had a great night for Gnarloween at Skatechurch on Friday night. The staff and I were blessed to have our good friend Jud Heald there to share the good news of Jesus! A couple of guys responded to that life changing message and we are praying for them to keep coming to Skatechurch to grow more in the Word of God. Thank you again Jud Heald for flying to the west coast and serving with us.
Jud Heald and I at the Luis Palau HQ in Beaverton, Oregon. That’s the display for the Livin’ It DVD from 2003. Inside the glass case is my red shirt that I wore in the movies bonus feature. It’s rad to see my old friend and to know that we are both still “Livin It”
“As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.”
2 Thessalonians 3:1 NIV
I had the privilege a few weeks back to skate and speak for a school assembly in South Dakota as well as preach the Gospel of Jesus to around 300 people in a barn for a weekend event.
I love traveling and doing ministry on the weekends, but when every single weekend is booked you start to feel a little overwhelmed. Please pray for strength and wisdom and rest for Liz and I.
The rad part is, we are so blessed to have solid staff and friends that pour into Skatechurch when I’m away each week. I love this photo of some of our younger rippers winning a trophy I made in my spare time a few days ago. It’s good to be home during the week, I love Skatechurch and all that the Lord is doing there. Thanks for your financial support and prayers. I’m not traveling at all in November, I might speak at a few church’s locally but no more plane rides as of now. God is good
FYI: If you happen to have inquired about booking me in the last 3 weeks, please be patient and I will respond shortly so we can pray about me coming out to your outreach/event.
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
