​For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.  ~2 Corintians 4:18

Pastor Pekari and friends, collectively known as Team Praying4U, have again conquered the 203 miles from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to Hampton Beach in the 2018 Reebok Reach the Beach Ragnar.

The goal of Team Praying4U is to raise money for new leaders for the Church in New England.


The 2-day relay began Friday, September 14 in Bretton Woods, NH, and continued for 2 days of perilous pavement-pounding rigor, sunup to sundown Friday and Saturday, culminating in a spectacular finish-line celebration at Hampton Beach on Saturday, September 15.


"... And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?  ... How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!" ~Romans 10:14-15


Once more the inimitable Pastor Dave Brezina fearlessly accompanied the Ragnarians on their mission by valiantly driving along in the team van!


Our fearless Ragnarians completed the 2018 challenge and are grateful to all who supported and continue to support them in their efforts.



New England needs Jesus.  


That means New England needs more Jesus loving leaders in the Church.  The mission of Team Praying4U is to raise funds and support for church planting in New England.  Our team of pastors, lay leaders, and other dedicated Christians wants to support those called to share Jesus Christ.  Funds will be used to help open doors for new church plants, train leaders, and start new ministries. ​

Undaunted, Messiah Lutheran Church's own Pastor Dave Brezina once again reprised his role as  'The Driver'  - the inspiring portrait of a man, a van, and a mission:
