Insightful and filled with the Holy Spirit

Brian and his guests have a profound way of looking at the world, through the eyes of a Christ like mindset. Hey is one of the few pastors willing to give up on his celebrity to give more glory to God. And like he quoted, “ The teaching about the cross is foolishness to those who are being lost, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

Restored My Faith!

Brian Sumner’s Foolishness podcast restored my faith in Jesus after wavering from being a new father and the meltdown of 2020. I am forever grateful for finding his podcast following an extremely dark time in my life. Through his testimony, teachings and encouragement, I have become a new man in the trenches of faith, fatherhood, marriage and choices. Love that I grew up in the culture of skateboarding watching Sumner, Jamie Thomas, Josh Harmony, Richard Mulder and the rest. Inspiring and a great listen. - Brian

Skater Jesus

I’ve been following Brian since I saw him in the movie Hardflip, once I saw him in the movie I looked him up and saw he had a website and podcast and I knew I had to listen to him and I’ve enjoyed every episode he’s put out. I’ve talked to him and thru social media and he’s super nice he’s the rest deal for Jesus
