Skateboarding Ministry takes off

Nice piece today in the Danbury News-Times about a ministry in Bethel that is reaching young people:

Skateboarding is often associated with negative images, but Bryn Gillette would like to see that perception change. He is trying to do that by mentoring young boys who enjoy the sport as much as he does in a skate ministry at Bethel's Walnut Hill Community Church.

Gillette started the volunteer ministry four years ago. It is a forum for him to not just demonstrate new skating tricks, but also influence young people by sharing his own experiences as a teen involved in the "skate culture," and how he was able to avoid the bad behaviors some associate with the sport such as vandalism and drugs.
