After a successful debut launch in 2015 (video above) we are back for 2016 

Extol: A Christ-Centered Skate Jam Featuring Brian Sumner and Mike Steinkamp

Extol, scheduled for Noon to 4 pm, October 8, 2016 at the Northeast Metro Park, in Pflugerville, TX, will help bring Jesus Christ into relationship with those who prepare for and participate in the event. The goal is to have more than 200 individuals impacted by Extol.

Extol is an ecumenical outreach program, run by a Core Team of skaters from churches throughout the Austin-Area with a variety of ability levels, but with one thing in common: a desire to bring Christ to the Austin area through skate boarding.

Extol is not the first Christian skate ministry program or event in the Austin area, but Extol can be the annual “tent pole” event to galvanize and solidify a variety of church, parish and community ministries in the Austin area.

Extol will feature representatives from area churches so participants will find ways to “plug in” to local worship after the Extol event is over.


Financial support will help with the follow event expenses:

· special event insurance
· park permits and licensing
· promotional material such as stickers, flyers, signage
· food and water for prticipants
· product giveaways randing from skateboard decks to Bibles
· tent for "Plug-In" Center
· airfare and related travel expenses for Brian Sumner and Mike Steinkamp
· miscellaneous costs such as bank and professional fees

Donations already received include:

· financial support for Brian Sumner
· public address / av system that Extol will use for music for the event
· a “host home” to provide accommodations
