Snowboarders & Skiers for Christ Conference

Let’s Do this

The Snowboarders & Skiers for Christ Conference is back this fall, November 17th-20th in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. Come gather with other skiers and snowboarders on mission for Jesus from across the world. If you love Jesus and the shred culture, this conference is a place for you to see old friends, make new ones, receive practical training, and have a ton of fun.

About the Conference

There are a lot of varying opinions as to what “Post-Christian” means, but ultimately a Post-Christian society is a society that’s rejected Christianity as a valid rule of life where Christianity was once dominant.

So what does ministry in the ski/snowboard culture look like in this context? How do we evangelize when Christianity, and more specifically Jesus, seems irrelevant?

This fall at the Snowboarders and Skiers for Christ Conference, this is what we’re going after: How do we minister faithfully in a Post-Christian world?

We’re excited to learn together how to bring the light and hope of Jesus into our communities this winter!
This event is designed to equip and encourage everyone that wants to connect and learn more about ski and snowboard ministry. Every age, ability level, denomination, organizational affiliation, and background are welcome. We want this to be the annual meeting place to gather with God’s people on mission in the mountains. Events will include prayer and worship, equipping information from industry experts, breakout discussions, games, and activities, shred time (weather permitting), and plenty of time to socialize.
