Ride for South Africa BIKE-A-THON
As many of you know, in January, Kevin and I will help plant a long term community in Cape Town, South Africa. Our intention is to simply share the genuine love that the Gospel offers through discipleship and helping raise up local leaders for the Kingdom of God.
We could not be more excited for this next season of our life. A long season to plant our roots deep and to "sit on the front porch" for 20+ years until we see change.
Our vision is to engage in peacemaking and reconciliation through the arts and sport.
As artists, entertainers and athletes, we have the ability to influence society and express beauty to a broken world in a way other spheres cannot. In a world that is continually at war with itself, we believe art and sport transcend language and align a broken humanity back to its conception—to Eden—where freedom, justice and beauty flow.
At Create Peace, it is our vision to empower and inspire at-risk, over-looked and under-served youth through the teaching of art and sport. We want to see a true sense of community and belonging through art classes, exhibitions, community, coaching, events and outreaches.

In honor of the Ironman Triathlon held each year in Kona, Kevin+Lindsay will host the first annual CREATE PEACE "Ride for South Africa" BIKE-A-THON on Saturday, November 10, 2012.
The funds raised by this BIKE-A-THON will be used to cover the up-front moving and set-up costs for our family and ministry move to South Africa. We are looking to raise around $20,000 to help cover visas, plane tickets, housing and utility deposits, car, basic furniture and kitchenware, and anything else needed to start from scratch in a different country.
