CHRISTIAN SKATERS INTERNATIONAL
Christian Skaters is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with this generation’s global skateboarding community. Christian Skaters is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on the financial support of churches, foundations, and individuals. We have been reaching out to the skateboarding community since the 1990s. Inspired by the movement of Christian Surfers, Christian Skaters was officially born in 2003. Christian Skaters felt a call to link arms with skate ministries from a number of countries to form an international movement. Christian Skaters exists to equip and encourage those with a heart to share Jesus Christ with the skateboarding culture.
We believe the soul of skateboarding is how much you give at the park, not how much you spend at the skate shop. You see, our biggest hope is for you to skate free. Not only because of the boards we freely give, but because you are free in your heart. When you take the gift of skateboarding and combo it with the gift of Christ’s salvation – you’re skating free. And for us, there’s no better stoke than that.
RELIANCE AND SIREN SKATEBOARDS
A professional skateboard company that focuses on selling skateboards and team of skaters dedicated to serving the Lord through skateboarding.
Untitled Skateboards is a professional skateboard company, but it’s also a 501 (c)3. We do sell skateboards, however, that is not our focus. The fact that we are a professional skateboard company allows us to be involved in the skate industry so that we can spread the Gospel through our skateboarding.
The Name of our company is a reference using roman numerals 122 or 12:2 and comes from the verse, Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. “Each shirt that we will print and design will be inspired by a Biblical verse. We are taking a very creative approach to designing each shirt to represent the scripture. Each shirt will be designed to help the wearer use that shirt as a witnessing tool. Each shirt has a story or specific meaning of why we put that design on the shirt. In other words, we want the shirt you are wearing to make an impact on the people you see or around on a daily basis.
