SKATERS TAKE MINISTRY TO THE "EXTREME" - 6/7/05
Thousands of urban kids and
teenagers across the country are caught up in the craze of extreme biking
and skating. Trinity Christian College helped bring a group of professional
bikers and skaters to the Chicago area to give an exciting show and bring
the Gospel to young people through sports.
Led by renowned actor Stephen
Baldwin, Livin' It Live made
a stop in Tinley Park, Illinois, for a free-wheeling routine of bicycle
stunts and skateboard tricks June 4. The bikers and skaters gave a jaw-dropping
exhibition before sharing testimonies of their conversion to Christianity.
Trinity was one of the sponsors
for the Livin' It tour stop
and hosted dinner for the troupe June 3 in the Fireside Chapel. Trinity's
admissions counselors were among 6,000 people who attended the exhibition,
handing out Trinity t-shirts and information. Nearly 80 people responded
to Baldwin's invitation to salvation.
