Skateboarding to Jesus

Video, length: 2:30

This is a story about First Presbyterian Church in Guthrie, Oklahoma, that kept asking itself, “Where are the youth?”  After taking notice of what was happening in their community and their own parking lot, Pastor Karen Rogers told the congregation one Sunday, “they are right outside our doors!”  And so the members, with  encouragement from Rogers, began ministering to these youth who were skateboarders, some with piercings, tattoos and purple hair.  Now First Pres has a thriving youth ministry where these children of God can feel at home.
