FCA's Fields of Faith Coming To 500+ High Schools Oct 10!
Fields of Faith is a student led event – sponsored by Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Students invite, pray for, share with, and challenge their peers to read the Bible and follow Jesus Christ. An athletic field provides a neutral, rally point where a community can come together.
In 2002, Oklahoma Fellowship of Christian Athletes Area Director, Jeff Martin, prayed about what to do with his heartfelt frustration regarding the temptations and spiritual battles facing our more “spectator generation” youth. God led him to 2 Chronicles 34 for the answer. King Josiah, an influential teenager, gathered his people and challenged them to read God’s Word. As a result, they changed their culture.
Each year in October, high school football fields all over the nation become houses of worship. Students gather together from all area churches and denominations – and proclaim their faith in Jesus and commitment to reading God's Word. The event starts with prayer. Then, students share their faith testimonies. After this, students challenge their peers to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ. Typically a Fields of Faith event lasts 45 to 90 minutes and is open to all people of all ages.
