Our vision is to serve God, see the world, and surf. SFMI is committed to the discipleship of christian surfers into a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ. SFMI commits to the truth of God’s word and employing those truths to reach the lost and hurting communities on Maui and peoples throughout the world. SFMI affirms the distinct passions and abilities of surfers to fulfill the great commission and share the stoke of surfing. Colossians 3:17 - Amplified Bible (AMP) - And whatever you do (no matter what it is) in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in (dependence upon) His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.

Our mission is to bring the truth of God’s word to surf locales globally, in so fulfilling our part in the great commission of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20) SFMI reaches out to surfers and surf communities practically by having Bible studies, beach clean-ups, children’s ministry, serving local churches, barbecues, etc. SFMI puts to use the unique abilities of the surfer to forge friendships and invite others to join what God is doing.
