VERITAS SHAPES MINISTRIES IS A 501(C)3 NON-PROFIT MISSION ORGANIZATION THAT IS DEDICATED TO CHASING AFTER A GENERATION, EVANGALIZING THEM, AND MAKING DISCIPLES. WE DO THIS THROUGH ACTION SPORTS OUTREACH, EVENTS, AND BIBLE STUDIES.
OUR VISION IS TO CHASE A GENERATION AND MAKE DISCIPLES WHO WILL IMPACT THE WORLD. OUR HEART IS CONTINUE THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE GOSPEL THROUGH DISCIPLESHIP. WE ARE ACTIVELY PURSUING THIS IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY OF GLYNN COUNTY.
When VSM was founded back in 2018,, we quickly realized that a large majority of the kids that were in our community were coming from single parent homes, many without fathers, they had a background or exposure to drugs, alcohol, and were naturally very rebellious. Sports, especially action sports (surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding) is the perfect avenue to reach these kids who grew up in tough homes.
This is the culture that we are reaching and group that is very much unreached by the corporate church.
The unique thing about the action sport industry is that there is no separation or division between the age groups at skateparks or in the ocean. You can have 35 year old men hanging out with 12 year old kids and sadly more times than not, the influence taking place in that environment is not positive. Our goal as an organization is to change that while providing positive role models and influences for the youth involved at the parks and in the water.
