Skaters of Christ Skateboard MinistrY
In 2008 God put it upon my heart to start a Christian skateboard team. At the time I didn't skate much, was super shy, and really didn't know where to start. I talked to my brother, Zac, and we prayed about it. Within 3 months of that day we had 5 guys on the Skaters of Christ Skateboard Team.
In 2009 we started going to the local parks and telling skaters about Jesus. God did some amazing stuff. One particular day we were skating a local park and a BMXer came ripping down the path. I reconized him and told the homies, "Dude, thats John Andrus!!!" John Andrus is a well-known figure in action sports ministries. We told him about what we do and he was stoked. He helped make us a promo video, and 3 months later we found ourselves at a skate conference in Florida.
"With man nothing is possible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26
Today we have partnered with skaters all over the world in bringing the Gospel to the ends of the earth. When we started we had no idea of any of this, but God did, and He opened the doors.
John 3:30 says, "He must become more and I less." The goal is not to the the best skateboarders, but to be the servants God wants us to be. Skaters of Christ is all about Jesus and nothing else.
