About/Support


Tim Byrne is a legendary Pro Freestyle Skateboarder and considered by many to be one of the best to ever do it. Tim has spent the past 20+ yrs. traveling the world and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with thousands of people each year. When Tim isn’t traveling he is Pastoring at the original Skatechurch in Portland, OR. Tim also helps to lead several other community outreach initiatives in the Portland metro area. (For more info on bringing Tim to your city, please email him direct on the booking page.)

The Skatechurch in Portland, OR was started in 1987 and is the very first ministry of its kind. Over the years Skatechurch has had 16,000+ skaters come through the doors and 1000’s have professed Jesus as their personal Lord & Savior. Skatechurch’s model has been duplicated thousands of times over and has reached global status. Chances are, if you are familiar with this type of ministry or have one in your church or city, whether directly or indirectly that model of outreach was birthed in a Portland, OR parking lot by a couple of faithful skaters who began to teach the Word of God to a group that wasn’t being reached. The rest is history!

Tim Byrne is missionary to a world that needs Jesus, his reputation as a Christ follower, evangelist, skateboarder is without question amongst those who have encountered his ministry over the years. Tim raises his salary as a missionary of Skatechurch through the generous support of churches, family, and people like yourself. All donations over $10 are tax deductible and can go through Skatechurch’s 501c3.

Tim and Liz choose to live a modest lifestyle in the city. When you support their ministry please know that you are supporting only their basic needs to live and be freed up to share the gospel, teach the Word, and love people well. Tim and Liz both try to be intentional with finances and set an example for those around them.
