As a ministry we quickly realized the potential media can provide. As a resource and tool, media has the ability to reach far further and far quicker than we ever could physically. The return on investment is exponential and the impact is unimaginable. Since 2010 we have been a part of producing several films which are listed below. Our desire is to continue investing resources and energy into the production of media for the sake of equipping leaders globally with additional resources and tools for outreach and evangelism. If you are interested in learning more about these films, and/or partnering alongside our efforts please send us at email to talk more.
ABOUT THE FILM SERIES
What was birthed as a dream in 2009 to bring surfboards and skateboards to children living in poverty around the world quickly grew into a vision far greater; the hope of impacting the world through action sports.
Over the last 10 years, Ride Nature has led over 70 international trips, visited 27 different countries, hosted countless events, and given away over 2,000 boards to children living in poverty all around the world.
This 10 part film series shares the story of Ride Nature and the lives impacted along the way.
ABOUT THE FILM
In 2005, in a rural village situated in the heart of Ethiopia, a man named Israel Dejene brought home a gift that he had received while studying abroad in Sweden. This gift was a skateboard. The film “MEGABI” documents Israel’s life growing up in Ethiopia, the struggles of poverty, stories of redemption, and how one simple skateboard sparked life into a local village while indirectly inspiring a global movement. This film is “A STORY OF HOPE THROUGH SKATEBOARDING”.
ABOUT THE FILM
Produced by The Ride Nature Organization, the film "Purpose" is a collaborative media effort between Walking on Water, Nations, Skate Bible, and This Is My Story, to bring the truth of Jesus Christ to the world through action sports outreach and evangelism.
Featuring footage, testimonies, and scripture shared by 33 professional Christian athletes, along with the support of author and speaker, Francis Chan, this film was created to be a global resource and tool for action sports evangelism.
The action sports community is growing rapidly worldwide. Through a recent study conducted by USA Today, there are more youth between the ages of 7-18 in the United States skateboarding than there are playing little league baseball. In countries around the world like Costa Rica, Ethiopia, and Japan
the action sports culture is growing exponentially. Currently there are an estimated 120 MILLION surfers, skateboarders, snowboarders, and wakeboarders worldwide. Our hope and prayer is that this film will be a tool used to reach each of them with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
