THE SFC PODCAST
The official podcast of Snowboarders + Skiers for Christ – a grassroots missions organization that exists to BRIDGE the ski/snowboard culture to Jesus by partnering with the local Church. In this podcast, we seek to encourage and equip listeners, who love Jesus and are passionate about the mountains, to carry out their God-given calling to BE A LIGHT in the shred culture.

In the words of the famous Michael Scott, Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin: “Relationships!? We don’t need no stinkin’ relationships!”
Relationships can be hard, can’t they? They require work. There’s a lot of effort that needs to go into forming, cultivating, and maintaining relationships. So if it’s so much work, then why bother? Great question. Thanks for (maybe) asking. They’re important because we were created to be in relationships: 1) relationship with God, and 2) relationship with others (both in the church and outside of the church).
In this episode, Josh and Randy dive into the SFC value of relationships. To help them navigate this tricky, but important, value, they interview long-time SFCer, Neil Richey. Neil is a Southern California native, and was one of the original pioneers of SFC Big Bear. Neil is known around the SFC community as the “relationship guy,” because he goes to extraordinary lengths to love on people through relationship. So tune in. This is a good one!
Why Start A Podcast?
Podcasts are a great platform to capture stories. We want to capture stories from people all over the world who are on the hill day after day engaging with people. We want to hear how Jesus has both transformed and informed their lives. And we want to hear how Jesus is impacting and changing their communities.
When stories are told well, they can help create direct experiences that inspire us to go out and generate incredible change.
While there are a ton of great resources out there already there are not many podcasts that directly relate to the unique (and niche) calling of ski/snowboard ministry – meeting and ministering to people on the mountain. Our hope is that this podcast will meet that need. We hope that this podcast is a resource for people who see how dark the shred industry can be and pray that it gives them a little bit of hope.
