I got to have lunch today with Sean Whisenhunt from www.Sk8churchowasso.com today. Sean has been helping me think through the launch of www.SK8BA.com, giving me plans for the ramps, and working through the details of skate park ministry. I am so grateful for his insights into running this ministry. They had a big night last Thursday with over 200 people in attendance. Channel 6 came out and did a story on them that you can find here. The Skate Church in Jenks baptized over 50 people last year and have already passed 30 at this point this year. That is a pretty amazing number when you consider that the average number of baptisms for a Baptist church in 2007 was 7.7 baptisms or 6.9 if you include mission churches. I got those figures from the Lifeway web site. God is doing amazing things through skate church ministries and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen through www.SK8BA.com.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can be a part of Skate Church Broken Arrow please contact Jeremy Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (405) 615-3666. We still have several needs we are trying to meet and need to recruit several more volunteers for our Tuesday night meetings. Please put us on your prayer list and come out on Tuesday nights starting next week to see what is happening.
