“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.
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!
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!
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.
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 www.msskateministry.com. God is good, thank you for your prayers and support for this ministry that the Lord so graciously provided.
The stickers on this cross represent each name of a student that responded to the Gospel of Jesus the other night in Arizona.
Placing our trust in Jesus and having our identity in Him is everything.
Please pray for another great ministry trip this weekend. I’ll be at Edge Skatepark in Allen, Texas with my friends Brian Sumner and Mike Steinkamp.
I woke up this morning all packed and ready to fly out once again for another series of ministry trips. This time I’ll fly to three different cities in one week. My good friend Jud Heald texted me this encouraging Word. I’ve been distracted and weary lately. Hope this encourages you too and reminds you to focus on Jesus.
“The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”
Lamentations 3:25-26 ESV
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
God is so good to his subjects but as sons of God we sometimes stubbornly get off on our own agenda, let us not grow weary in doing good or grow calloused that we forget that He is God and holds our life in His hand. Let us keep in prospective Jesus words and how we ought to pray – Our father , holy is your Name, your Kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Let’s keep this at the forefront of our mind, that it is for His Glory that we are redeemed. Thank God, praise Him in the midst of waiting for a season of blessing!
Please pray for the skaters and the leaders of Skatechurch as they take a select few on a Skatepark tour of Canada B.C. When skaters come for consecutive Bible Study times we award them with a Skateboard Tour like experience each year.
Please pray! Thank you friends.
I started travelling and sharing the #gospel of #Jesus with my skateboard in Sept. of 2000.
I turned #pro for #freestyleskateboarding in 2001.
It was by the grace of God that I learned how to skate and perform a 20min #skate #demo on 2 sheets of plywood, so that I could have way more ministry opportunities and reach a much broader audience. I’ve placed my trust in the #Lord for 15yrs. and #God has never let me or my wife go without. #blessed #faithlife #dreamjob #Skateministry #untitledskateboards #ministrylife #skatechurchpdx #godfire #varsityshades #timbyrne
I just put the final touches on the “best trick” trophy for next weeks Skatechurch Canada Trip.
Praying for another great trip for our staff and skaters.
