Youth Pastors, why choose the Boardwalk Beach Blitz?

Special Guest Bios

Citizen Way

When Ben Calhoun started Citizen Way, he could never have foreseen the path that’s led them to where they are today. From their college band beginnings in the Midwest to becoming a voice of hope heard throughout the world, the mission of Citizen Way has never wavered. The members of Citizen Way—lead singer/guitarist Ben Calhoun, drummer David Blascoe and guitarist/background vocalist Daniel Olsson—consider themselves "musicianaries," or musicians with a missionary-like calling.

Citizen Way

Guest Speaker: Brian Sumner

Brian Sumner is an Evangelist/pastor/speaker who came to faith in 2004 at the height of his professional skateboard career. As God began to work in their lives, rebuilding their marriage, He also opened doors for Brian’s faith to be shared through television shows, radios shows and other media. Speaking at youth events, churches, festival, recovery centers, schools, missions trips etc. soon became the norm for Brian. The next few years, ministry became more and more specific and soon it became obvious their where three primary areas of consistent focus, MISSIONS – MARRIAGES – MINISTRY.

Brian Sumner


Led by Dave Matsumura, Kokua is a group of musicians whose goal is to help people connect with God through music. Matsumura believes that "music can bring us together. It's something we can create. It's a way we can jointly give to God from our hearts."
