Church in the Park- Calvary Chapel Camarillo

Calvary Chapel Camarillo contacted Break Free to have us come and serve alongside them at the 15 year anniversary celebration since their church started. The way that this specific opportunity came about is totally the Lords doing. When Break Free was in Japan this past July, we worked with the church Fuse Community Jesus. One of the people attending the Fuse church was in the Navy and his station was outside the Tokyo area. He used to attend the Calvary Chapel Camarillo and he gave his old church in California our contact information. The rest is history. We had a great time serving with CC Camarillo. The service was held in a public park and there were probably over 1200 people attending. I , Josh, had the privilege to share my testimony and then the pastor gave a gospel message after which led to many conversions! After the service was done I was walking out to go perform and one of the event staff workers stopped me and introduced me to a Hispanic man who was also working on the staff. He wanted to let me know (with tears in his eyes) that he gave his heart to Jesus. I was so thrilled and happy for the Lord saving this man’s soul. After the message, we were able to do a bboy demonstration in a skate park alongside other BMX bikers and skaters. We had a great time and felt very loved by the church. “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (Check out the videos of this event on:

Break Free Equipping and LA outreach

Break Free had their first equipping weekend! It was on Mike and Josh’s heart to help equip the believers in the bboy community to disciple others and share the gospel. Mike Swalley has been staying in Minnesota with his family for the summer and he actually just got engaged! So he is a busy guy and it was great for him to come down to OC and teach the saints. Friday night was a great turn out. We had bboy don from In Rhythm with Him, bboy Cheo, bboy heavy, bboy stoops, break free and others. About 13 people showed up while Mike taught on the passage from 2 Timothy 2:2 “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” Mike showed us through the scriptures how to pour into other believers and follow in the footsteps of Paul and Timothy. After the teaching we had a great bboy practice! It was a great atmosphere and much talent. Then Saturday morning I (Josh) had the pleasure of teaching on evangelism. Romans 1:16 says “I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God for salvation to all who believe…”. I talked about how we must be ready to share and that the gospel has incredible power to save the soul. Then we put feet to our faith and went to downtown Los Angeles to perishing square and did street evangelism. We did our dancing that drew people to come and watch. We were able to plant many seeds by Gods grace and share the gospel. We had an awesome weekend and I was really encouraged! (Check out videos of this weekend on )
