Wonder which local minister is the best athlete? Enjoy seeing your minister suffer without facing consequences? Welcome to the Faster Pastor, which puts our preachers on the course to race against one another. The 0.6 mile route is at Skyview Lake, conveniently located near the finish line of the Christian Cross Country 5K route.
Support your pastor with donations on Push Pay! *Be sure to mention their name in the memo of the donation.* Whichever minister has the most donations by June 3, 2021 will get to assign every other participant hilarious disadvantages! All donations for the Faster Pastor event go directly to the Christian Cross Country Festival.
Faster Pastor will begin at 9:15 AM on June 5, 2021 at Skyview Lake! Come to laugh at, and maybe support, your minister as they go head to head with the competition.
