“I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar!” - Isaiah 51:15 

San Diego is one of the best places in the world for surfing the waves God makes! There is something about being out in God’s creation and enjoying it that really puts things in perspective.

Personally, I (Pastor Duane) love everything about surfing. I love sitting in the water and seeing the expanse of the ocean and the brightness of the sun. I love the challenge of paddling our through the surf, watching it and reading what each unique wave of God is going to do. And I LOVE the feeling of walking the nose on a longboard or driving down the line on a shortboard and either pulling into a tube or smacking the lip with all my might. In my opinion it’s the greatest sport God ever made and we all know Jesus was the first surfer who walked on water!

In addition, surfing is great to do with friends and a great way to make friends. As such it provides a wonderful opportunity for discipleship through an activity that is wonderfully unique to our city. Waiting for waves between sets becomes a great opportunity to talk about life, God and everything else under the sun. It was actually through surfing with other Christian surfers that God used to open my heart up to the goodness of Jesus.

The Resolved Church surfing ministry exists to facilitate connection with God and with people pursuing God.
