Our Team

A Family on Mission

The shred culture thrives on individualism. Jesus, however, entrusted the future of his church to eleven people who he taught and challenged to work as a team to advance the Good News. Here at SFC we believe that God has called us to make an impact in this culture as a team.

The global movement of SFC is supported by Support Office Staff Members, Movement Managers, and volunteers who actively live out the call to bridge the shred culture to Jesus, partnering with the local Church. Each individual’s involvement spans from part-time to full-time to volunteer, but our heart remains the same: to be a light in the shred culture.

Support Office Staff

Headquartered in Dillon, CO, USA, the Support Office is tucked between first class ski resorts like Breckenridge, Keystone, and Copper Mountain. The Support Office is made up of dedicated individuals, some local to Dillon and some remote, whose primary goal is to support God’s mission in the ski and snowboard culture.

Not only do we at the Support Office encourage and equip the global movement of SFC, but we consider it a priority to actually live it out personally. Each Support Office team member is actively involved in their local ski community and a local body of believers.

Joshua Stock

International Team Captain

I grew up as a hyper-active snowboarder in Appalachia where I studied missions and married my high school crush. Living in Colorado since 2004, our two kids and local outreaches keep us busy. My title in the SFC Support Office is the “International Team Captain” because my giftings are mainly in the ‘doings’ of the mission (meeting, shredding, traveling, teaching with fellow Jesus-loving snowboarders and skiers). Since getting involved with SFC in 2002, I’ve found my passion in encouraging our fellow skiers and snowboarders to view their ‘toys’ as ‘tools’ to build the Kingdom of God in our dark subculture.

USA National Director

The only thing that I ever wanted to do since high school was to hang out with shred kids and talk about Jesus. I feel so blessed that I’ve been able to do that in various roles with SFC since 2009. My goal is to use my big picture perspective, business operations acumen, and team building skills to guide SFC alongside this amazing team. I’m even more thrilled that I get to bring my wife and three children along for the journey. God is good.

Director of Communications & Technology

When Jesus took a hold of my life after dedicating several winters fully into snowboarding it just made sense. I have to use this passion of mine for His kingdom. I spent 4 years helping start the local chapter in Spokane, WA and building relationships with the local community before jumping to full time with SFC in 2014. My background in tech and desire to make things “just work” have put me in the right position on this team to support skiers and snowboarders for Jesus.

Taylor Brant

Taylor Brant

Creative Media Coordinator

I grew up in Evergreen, a small mountain town outside of Denver and learned to ski/snowboard at Copper Mountain and Breckenridge. At twelve years old, I fell in love with snowboarding and making snowboard videos. In 2010, when making a snowboard film, I came across SFC, which planted the seed to follow Jesus with all my heart and use my passions to reach lost shredders. Over the years, I have volunteered leading the SFC Denver chapter and directing SFC Australia/New Zealand. My role now with SFC is running the creative media for the organization, which includes making films, capturing people’s stories and testimonies of how God is working within SFC, video/photography of SFC events/promotions and running the @sfcinternational social media platforms.

Ryan Leeds

Ryan Leeds

Director of Leadership Training

God has given me two big passions in life: Jesus and snowboarding. I never thought that these two things had much to do with one another until I met some crazy Jesus-loving shredders back in 2011. These individuals loved to ski/snowboard, but more importantly, they LOVED Jesus and wanted to teach others about Him. Now, through what I can only describe as God’s provision, my wife and I get to work with these crazy Jesus-loving shredders. Using my background in Biblical Studies (with a BS in Biblical Studies and a MA in Theological Studies), I have the privilege of developing discipleship/leadership resources that encourage and equip other skiers/snowboarders to carry out their God-Given calling to the “shred” community.

Alie Heenan

Alie Heenan

Director of Operations

I had only skied a handful of times before joining the team here at SFC. Since I started following Jesus in college, I’ve always sought to be a bridge between whatever culture I was in and Jesus, whether that was rock climbing, school, or the tech industry. I was mainly just doing the things I loved with a missional mindset. After getting laid off from my tech job in Atlanta, I knew that God was calling me to Colorado to join SFC and be a bridge and a light in the ski/snowboard culture. The I’ve-only-skied-a-handful-of-times thing became a non-issue when God showed us time and time again that this was HIS wild and crazy plan that was unfolding. I now serve as the Director of Operations and ensure that our systems and processes truly serve the “shredders for Jesus” that are a part of SFC all over the world.

Movement Managers

As the movement of SFC continues to grow, so does the need for more localized leadership and organization. Our Movement Managers meet regularly with the Support Office staff to stay connected with the global happenings of SFC while also connecting with Individuals, Groups, and Partners in their region specifically.
