The annual Fields of Faith event is set to take place at the Chisum ISD football field Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018, at 6 p.m.
Lamar County students will join thousands of youth on athletic fields across the nation to share their Christian faith with classmates during the 15th annual, national Fellowship of Christian Athletes, FCA, Fields of Faith event. This rapidly growing inter-denominational outreach event will be held at more than 500 locations throughout the nation.
While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker, FCA’s Fields of Faith is structured as a student-to-student ministry. Peers invite their own classmates and teammates to meet on their school’s athletic field to hear student testimonies, challenge each other to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ.
According to FCA, the national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, more than a million people have joined the movement. In 2017 alone, more than 198,000 students gathered on 521 fields, where 6,213 made first-time faith decisions, 5,015 recommitted their lives to Christ, and 6,494 committed to reading their Bible.
