Seventeen years ago, a retired NFL player built a world-class skatepark on the Baja Peninsula in Pescadero. He wanted it to be a ray of light in a dark community. But the skatepark has since gone fairly dormant. And to make matters worse, in the fall of 2014, it was hit hard by Hurricane Odile. While the skate bowl itself is still quite functional, a lot of the amenities were damaged. You can be part of repairing and revitalizing this park, and helping us move it toward its original intent. Our vision, coordinated with locals, is to see this park become a place of restoration and recreation for the youth in the community of Pescadero. (Skaters are welcome and can use the park, but it’s not required!)

Program

In 2022 Group Mission Trips will be calling everyone to Go Serve. On each trip, we will focus on God’s call on us to serve in freedom. We will discover that Jesus is the reason we serve. We will learn that serving is a way to give praise to God. We will challenge ourselves to serve even when no one notices. We will remember that the ultimate example of service is Jesus’ humility and willingness to die for us. And we will discover that God blesses us when we serve.

Join us for next summer and answer the call – Go Serve!
