Special Guest Bios
Plato said, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle." International rock artist Manafest (real name: Chris Greenwood) knows the saying well; his uphill climb began at age five when his father committed suicide.
Years of childhood insecurity and fear gave way to a promising skateboarding career, but then an injury took that away too.
Music soon filled the void and it would prove to be a perfect fit. Since 2001, Manafest has battled his way into the business—playing a thousand shows in nine countries, winning an armload of industry awards, and racking up hits and radio play with songs like "Human", "Avalanche", "Every Time You Run", and "No Plan B".
Brian was born in Liverpool, England and started skating at 13 years old. By 15-16 Brian had won contests and appeared in magazines around England.
When he was 16 years old he moved to America and began riding for Tony Hawk's Birdhouse and some of the biggest brands in skateboarding.
Through life changing experiences Brian encountered Jesus Christ in 2004 and has been using his gift of skating for The Lord ever since. He now travels all over the world sharing his testimony and speaking at churches.
Ever struggle with who you are and why you are here? As the Boardwalk Beach Blitz guest speaker, Brian will use his testimony and Biblical truths to point to your true IDENTITY as God's child.
Kokoa is a Christian rock band committed to seeking God and creatively worshiping Him. They started at Hume Lake Christian Camp leading worship for the Outdoor Education program.
From there they began touring all over the West Coast… and the world.
Ryan is a pastor for Awakening Church in San Jose, and is committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. He is the author of the blog hopeawakening.com and the son of pastor Chip Ingram.
Ryan will be at the Boardwalk Beach Blitz to pray for and pour into all of the Youth Pastors. He will hold a special time of encouragement in the Exclusive Youth Pastor Tent at 7:00pm on Friday evening.
