The Skate CHurch Story

In 1987, while attending Portland Oregon Bible College, Paul Anderson and Clint Bidleman recognized a need to reach out to their local skate community. Encouraged by Central Bible Youth Intern John Stone to start a weekly gathering to reach those "that didn't quite fit in", Paul and Clint joined forces with Youth Pastor Mark DeYmaz and founded what is still known and recognized worldwide as "Skate Church".
