Our goal is to provide Central Massachusetts with a free indoor skatepark/community space for kids of all ages. We plan to utilize the space to share the Gospel through regular preaching and modeling the life of Christ.

I’ve been involved in skateboarding ministry, in one form or another, for the past 10 years. I’ve joined already established ministries and started a couple as well. After moving to Worcester in 2018, I was blown away by the need for an indoor skatepark through the brutally long winters here. (I’m originally from Missouri where it is much warmer) God brought me, my wife (Jocelyn), and our girls up here to help start a church (City Light Church) but He had other plans too. Our dream to open a skatepark has been growing for a long time and now God brought us to the perfect place for it. – Stephen Shoge
