Service & Love

 

Our vision for ministry is to live radically, give generously, and love unconditionally.  It is our aim to love and serve others the way Jesus showed us in his earthly ministry. 

 

For those who are used to typical church ministries, "shred" ministry can look very different.  Ryan Ries of the Whosoever Movement says this, “Skate ministry can sound unorthodox or messy. We are pioneers.”  We are not a church but a ministry of the local church and our leaders and volunteers are actively involved in church life.

We can be found weekly in our local skateparks and beaches and seasonally on the slopes, living out what Jesus teaches us in the Gospels and being a positive influence in these communities. Ours is a relational ministry; we are all about building individual relationships and investing in a unique community of people who have long been neglected.

 

We have all been called to be "fishers of men*," and God has specifically called us to reach out in action sports.

*“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”  At once they left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:19-20
