What are you willing to do to spread the word?

What are you willing to do to spread the word about Jesus?  If God asked you to do something hard and that would take over three years to complete would you be willing to see it through?  These are a few of the question that I left the theater last Tuesday night asking myself after the premiere of Seek First. Seek First is a skate video that was made by members of the simple church in Lexington known as “Skate Church.”  I won’t go into all the details here mostly because the Lexington Herald Leader did a great job on sharing the vision for the video in last Saturday’s paper (read here).  The short version is that God spoke to Josh Roberts...

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.

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...

Our Year In Simple Church (Part 5) By Karla Duerson

What Simple Church has meant to me this year: I have found rest, loyalty and inspiration from Simple Church this year. When I wake up on Sunday mornings, I love that I can come as I am to Skate Church. I come as I am and bring what I have without pressure that it’s not enough, not right or that I have to do or be something else. I am also blessed by the loyalty of the many who gather in Skate Church, the training, LTGs and otherwise. I see people living loyally to Christ and His calling for us to journey together. I’m amazed by it. I have been inspired this year through my involvement with Simple Church. Through relationships and conversations, I’ve been inspired...

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...
