The Vision

Our vision for the next 10 years is based on scripture and on the evidence we have experienced since our humble beginnings as The Way Skatepark in November 2008. Many statements of vision have continued from the beginning and are being expanded as God directs: the most obvious being the new skate facility built on our church grounds with space for ministry to the youth of our community and surrounding area. Visions of future growth include: daily study and presentation of The Word, assistance with education needs including tutoring and study table provision, post-high school preparation, life-skill development, preparation and guidance for youth into full-time Christian service, and support for full-time paid staffing. Our primary purpose continues: to glorify God in a facility providing safe, nurturing leadership to young people who enjoy non-traditional sport.

During the next five years, the vision is to have a full-time ministry leader on the premises, to have the skatepark open seven days a week, to add new equipment, and to have many area youth accept Jesus Christ into their lives. Additionally, the vision entails the skatepark ministry expanding and adding other related ministries that tackle the chains that continue to bind the youth in our community such as drug/alcohol addictions, the challenges of being a single parent/teen parents, hunger, homelessness and helplessness. As of December 2011, God has enabled us to reach many aspects of this five-year vision.

And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,  and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.” 

- Acts 2:17-18 (ESV)
