Hello All! Allow me to introduce you to you my good friend Bryan Jennings….one of the coolest guys I know….a real heart for the Lord and just loves to help others! He founded and runs an amazing organization called Walking On Water. We had a little fun on the beach the other day taking some shots of him, so I thought it would be cool to show you some of the out takes……Anyways, here is a little info on Walking On Water!
Walking On Water is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with this generation’s global surfing community. Professional surfer Bryan Jennings started Walking on Water in 1995 with the vision of using his surfing abilities to share his faith with young people. His idea was to hold an overnight surf camp for junior high and high school students where he would not only teach students how to surf, but also focus on sharing his Christian faith. What started as a small camp of ten students has now grown into a worldwide ministry that reaches thousands of people through surf camps and films.
Though the ministry started with surf camps, Walking On Water is best known for its surf films. When Walking On Water created its first film, Follow the Leader, only a few hundred people screened it. The next eight years produced nine more movies, and now audiences number in the thousands. People of all ages, both surfers and non-surfers, have connected with the life-saving message of Jesus Christ that is conveyed through these films. To further impact the lives of young people, Walking On Water hosts outreach events, international short-term mission trips, and arrange speaking engagements at schools, churches, and community events. Every summer, Walking On Water surf camps provide opportunities for students between the ages of 11and 18 to learn surfing in a Christian environment. Walking On Water is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on the financial support of churches, foundations, and individuals.
I am so STOKED to get to shoot the Walking On Water Dream Surf Camps again this Year at Trestles. So, parents, please consider sending your kids to this amazing week with Walking On Water. You will be amazed what your child walks away with after spending a week with Bryan and all of the amazing surf counselors that week!
