The River
We hope to motivate others to conquer their own fears by either training towards a triathlon goal or, even more challenging, standing up for their beliefs when pressured to succumb.  Most of all, we encourage others to PERSEVERE.  Philippians 3:14 says for us to "Press on towards the prize of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus"

Sometimes finishing a challenge seems like relief and fulfillment. But we know gratification should come from how we play the game. The ups and downs of the race course are where our strong points shine and our weaknesses haunt us. Like in life, we are not focused on ending it but on cresting each trialing hill as fast and honorably as we can. The higher the hill, the more glorious the summit. By climbing with Jesus at our side, the hill is never too high. The satisfaction gets better throughout the race.

Team Soares is an invitation to everyone to team up with each other and put God at the center.  Shine on.  Press on.  Know that the "climbs" are not futile but, rather, meaningful and rewarding.

Our goal is that we and others will persevere through all struggles in our careers, marriages, families, and just day-to-day events.  If it's something that pleases God, it CAN be achieved with His help.  We must not quit.. but PERSEVERE
