Brian Sumner - professional skateboarder, pastor & evangelist is visiting East Anglia for a few days during the middle of August, and will be at the Norwich skate park in Eaton Park on Monday August 15. Tony Rothe reports.

Brian turned professional at the age of 19 and has skateboarded for some of the biggest companies. He made his US debut in the skate video The End. Brian has been in other films including One Step Beyond by Adio shoes, on many 411's and on Baker videos. Brian spent many summers travelling the US on Tony Hawks Gigantic skate park tour which aired throughout America on television, and helped present skateboarding to a new generation of skateboarders.

Brian's love for God’s Word, led him to various bible schools and courses, and he is now a pastor at Rock Harbor Church in Huntington Beach in America, where he preaches/teaches and focuses on city evangelism and outreach. He continues to travel the world partnering with ministries, churches and the like, with the goal of reaching the lost.

For non-skateboarders, and those who know of Brian Sumner through the Billy Graham - 'My Hope' films there is an opportunity to see the Billy Graham 'My Hope' film - 'Another Chance' and to hear Brian give his extended testimony at 6.30pm on Sunday August 14 at Elim International Church, Barrack Corner, Ipswich, IP1 2NB.
