Sticky Spaces: How Do We Create Community Spaces that Leave A Lasting Impact?

According to a recent study from the Fuller Youth Institute, which looked at 500 young adults, over 70 percent of churchgoing youth report having serious doubts about faith. Sadly, less than half of them shared their doubts and struggles with a mentor or friend. However, it was found that opportunities to express and explore their doubts were actually correlated with greater faith maturity. Communication and relationships in a technology‐driven culture are so important. Listen to Toni and Uli Frallicciardi share how creating spaces for youth and families to enjoy the things they love have opened up opportunities to share the Gospel. Sticky community spaces allow deeper conversations to naturally leave a lasting impact and create safe places where relationships can be built and faith can happen.

This was one of the workshops at the Connect PDX Conference in Portland, Oregon in September 2019.

Toni and Uli Frallicciardi co‐founded Christian Skaters International in 2003, a few years after Uli gave his life to the Lord at a local skatepark. That same year they served at Beachfest in Fort Lauderdale which launched their relationship with the Palau family, Livin’ It Alliance, and the Next Generation Alliance. For over a decade, they served locally at Ramp 48 Skatepark at Calvary Chapel while working with their personal ministry to plant skate ministries and form a global network of skate ministry leaders throughout the world. In 2007 they hosted the first Skate and Action Sports Conference to equip and encourage leaders of these ministries. In 2014, they helped launch the ACTS global network of action sports ministries with a mission to connect leaders who are making disciples in all types of action sports. They continue to lead Christian Skaters, serve on the ACTS planning team, and work with skaters and surfers in their local community.
