JSAW is about transforming action sports culture by making riders into disciples of Jesus Christ. Transforming action sports culture worldwide is not something JSAW can do alone, so in 2012 JSAW formed a strategic partnership with other action sports ministries including Christian Skaters, Snowboarders and Skiers for Christ, Christian Surfers and WakeWell. In 2014 this morphed into the ACT’s Network. We want to help fuel the action sports ministry movement by empowering people who are working to make riders into disciples. Together we have helped build skate parks in Guatemala, Panama, Ethiopia, India, Egypt, South Africa and Dubai. We also provide grants and leadership training resources for over 75 action sports ministries worldwide impacting thousands of riders each year.
Action Sports Ministry Grants
Through strategic partnerships JSAW offers small grants to action sports ministries that are creating a safe, positive environment within action sports where riders can belong, be introduced to Jesus and be engaged in discipleship. JSAW grants have helped to fund discipleship surf trips, build skateparks, and even provide food for snowboard outreach events.
