"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts" 

Colossians 3:15 

Providing our passion and expertise for private hire.  Faster than the Pastor was the PRIMARY SPONSOR for this Crystal event that fell on the St Raphael's parish festival day.

....another God Breathed event!

St Raphael's, is different from our traditional FTTP events, as the host they provided the event swag, and we provided the execution of what our participants experienced as another professional, faith filled event!

Faster than the Pastor, A Journey to the Cross is a fresh and relevant community building, evangelization effort and health advocacy initiative, created to bring our faith community together in a way that celebrates and exalts our faith and proclaims the Gospel.  

Faster than the Pastor - Crystal, St Raphael's Parish
Saturday, Aug 5th, 2017










ALL were Faster than their Pastor, Fr Rudolph - THANK YOU for being a gracious host and present spirit.

Event distance was based on Colossians 3:15 - making the course an excellent distance to walk / jog / run & PRAY!!!  


The Little Lambs Mad Dash was an playful obstacle course for kids to run through, jump over, crawl under and giggle!  We send groups of similar aged kids through the course led by older "kids" in waves to ensure their safety!  Playful, fun - faith in ACTION!
