Snowboarders & Skiers for Christ

OUR Culture is Dark.
We Exist to be THE Light.

A BRIDGE TO THE ski and snowboard CULTURE

The ski and snowboard culture is spiritually dark and the effects of the community’s embrace of sin is evidenced in high substance abuse and addiction rates, mental health crises, disjointed transient communities and heartbreaking suicide rates. We want to see the light of Jesus changing lives and making communities whole!

We believe God’s Word calls us to find our identity in Jesus, to engage people within our culture through genuine, loving relationships and to do selfless acts for others as we share the Gospel message.

Our Mission is to B.R.I.D.G.E. the ski and snowboard culture to Jesus, partnering with the local Church.


There are 70 nations that host the “shred culture” and range from predominantly-Muslim nations in the Middle-East to post-church nations in the Western world and everything in between. SFC has acting individuals, groups, or partners in the countries below.
