Skate Church Trip To Barcelona

Right now, a small group of guys from Lexington’s Skate Church and Nicholasville’s Skate Church are in Barcelona Spain, the unofficial skateboarding capital of the world!

Skate Church – FCA Skate Camp Praise

Skate Church-FCA Skate Camp Wrap Up by Gavin Duerson We wrapped up our 8th year of Skate Camp yesterday! This camp has a special place in my heart as, in many ways, it was the beginning of what would become “skate church” and what would also help me clearly see the vision for “simple church.” I am super blessed to see that this camp continues to be a pillar in the skate church community and that God is continuing to use it to grow the Kingdom! Below are some pictures from the week and some bullet point highlights from all that God did: * Eleven young men publicly professed a desire to receive Christ and prayed with the leaders. * One young man...

Trailer for Upcoming Video by Skate Church Friends

For the past several years Josh Roberts, who along with his wife Katherine helped start a simple church for skaters known in Lexington, KY as “skate church,” has faithfully worked on a video with other guys in the skate church family.  The purpose of the upcoming video, entitled Seek First, is to make the most of their love and passion for skateboarding for the “His Kingdom.” Their perseverance is about to pay off as they are coming down the home stretch with the project and have even set a date for the premier. If you would like to know more about skate church in Kentucky or stay in the loop with the premier of the video you can...

On Board (Lexington Skate Church Documentary)

Recently, several students at Asbury University visited our Skate Church family to film a documentary entitled “On Board,” for their final class project and I wanted to share it with you. Some of you know how instructive “skate church” has been to me and my family in helping us see clearly the larger vision of “simple church.”  We long to help everyone simply their church life such that they are able to bring Jesus and the experience of following Him together with others outside the building and into the places where people live, work, and play.   I thought this video gives a good picture of what simple church is about and what we have been...

Jonathan Wilson, FCA, and Skate Church

I am pleased to introduce a good friend.  Jonathan Wilson, a local Fellowship of Christian Athletes representative, also serves as a leader in simple church. This short video, put together by Providence Church in Raleigh, NC (a church that supports Jonathan’s work with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes), highlights his work in the skate community here in Lexington. He also briefly discusses what simple church at the skate park looks like. You can find out more about the skate camp mentioned in this video here.  The simple church that gathers at the skate park (also known as “skate church”) has a facebook page...

Skate Church Baptisms and Article

This past weekend, the Lexington Herald Leader took note of some of our folks and their simple church that meets at the local skate park.  You can read the full article and check out some of the photos from their visit to the “skate church” at woodland park.  While i thought their choice of the word “service” was interesting, the article did a fairly good job of letting others peer into what the skate church gathering looks like… On a sunny Sunday morning, the Skate Park in Woodland Park is filled with skateboarders taking on the little concrete canyons.   And then it’s time for church — Lexington Skate Church. The service is...

Christmas Celebration with Lylak December 16

Each year, we host a Christmas celebration gathering for simple church friends and family in the region.    This Christmas, we are partnering with local musicians from the band Lylak and simple church friends Roser (Matthew and Alysa Cobb) to host a night of Christmas carols and songs. Perhaps slightly different from years past, we expect that there will be many folks unfamiliar with the idea of simple church desiring to come via their connection with Lylak.  So, this will be an opportunity for the various simple churches to connect, but also a chance for us to bless the city a message of hope through carols and song.  In addition, we will have opportunities...

2017 Year End Letter

Friends, Several years ago I had the picture in my mind of a harbor filled with families working to load up their belongings and family members into a multitude of sailboats. They each were getting in position to leave. They were not coming back. Each boat was filled with their family and friends and they were setting out on an incredible journey–a journey that no doubt would be filled with hardship and adventure, challenges and exploration of the unknown. Boats were loaded and friends and family were in place as they raised the sails. There was a slight breeze that began to blow. However, they knew that a powerful wind was coming and when it did, they would be...
