Kolarikovi, Radek & Laura
Radek Kolarik has been actively involved in bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to Czech youths through sports ministries, summer camps, and Bible studies since he graduated from high school.
In the summer of 2000 he met an American who held a similar calling and had taken a job teaching English in the Moravian village of Kurim. In 2003 they were married and they began an outreach to youths in their garage that met 4-5 times per week (Garaz572). Teens came to the Lord and brought their friends! In 2009 they planted a church in their garage in addition to their youth meetings. Parents as well as local families were drawn there by the Lord as well.
In 2011 they moved to an old dance hall where they could minister to their active and growing flock (Krestane Kurim – Christians of Kurim). Over the past 4 years God has also blessed Laura and Radek with four children. American teams from Maine as well as Chicago undergird the Kolariks in ministering to local high schools, teaching English, and staffing summer camps.
The ministry is flourishing and there is a need for financial support for a part-time worker as well as an American to minister longer-term teaching English in the local schools.
