WALKING ON WATER // BRYAN JENNINGS

Walking on WaterWalking On Water is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with this generation’s global surfing community. Professional surfer Bryan Jennings started Walking on Water in 1995 with the vision of using his surfing abilities to share his faith with young people. His idea was to hold an overnight surf camp for students where he would not only teach students how to surf, but focus on sharing his Christian faith. What started as a small camp of ten students has now grown into a worldwide ministry that reaches thousands of people through films, outreach events, surf camps, and international mission trips!  Though the ministry started with surf camps, Walking On Water is best known for its surf films. When Walking On Water created its first film, Follow the Leader, only a few hundred people screened it. The next fourteen years produced ten more movies that have been seen by over 500,000 people in live attendance.

 In recent years, Walking On Water Films was involved with the promotion of Bethany Hamilton’s feature film Soul Surfer, working in conjunction with the Sony Pictures Faith marketing team to promote the film’s theatrical release. Sony Pictures also distributed our movie titled Walking On Water, which was a huge accomplishment a couple of years ago, as it was one of the very few documentaries that Sony distributed that year.  Our most recent completed film, Promised Land: Israel Through the Eyes of Surfers, has already screened to many packed out theaters and churches all over the US, Japan, and Israel.  We are currently in the final production stages of a new film called Beyond Sight, which features a blind Brazilian surfer and his quest to get barreled at Pipeline.  

 It’s our goal to continue producing documentaries and feature films that encourage and inspire audiences worldwide.  People of all ages, both surfers and non-surfers, have connected with the life-saving message of Jesus Christ that is conveyed through these films.
