"Calling All Skaters" Skateboarding Ministry is Creating Disciples All Around the World
Calling All Skaters (CAS), founded by pro skater Shaun Hover, was created to be a ministry that launches disciples all around the world. CAS is doing just that, as they have 19 crew members serving as ambassadors in various cities throughout the United States and over 6 countries around the world.
CAS is a missionary launching pad in which skateboarders are discipled through relationship, trained, and sent out to skating communities around the world to share the gospel and represent the love of Jesus. What they do includes outreach in skate communities, producing Christ-centered media for people around the world, working along-side other skate ministries, and interceding for everything within the skateboarding culture.
CAS has created two categories of programs in which anyone can apply to join. They have "Discipleship Training Schools" and "Thrash Programs". Discipleship Training Schools are 5-6 month long programs where post-high school aged skateboarders live together in community and are discipled through relationship. This program also includes 2-3 months of outreach. Thrash Programs are essentially 1-2 week long camps for high school aged kids can be discipled and "shred famous skate spots and parks in one of the world's biggest skateboarding cities".
