Students from Fayette County schools will join thousands of other youth on athletic fields across the nation Oct. 10 to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the 15th annual national Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ Fields of Faith event.

This rapidly growing, interdenominational 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 fellow students share their testimonies, challenge them to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ.

This will be the fourth Fields of Faith event for FCA Fayette County. Last year, approximately 500 students and supporters attended at Fayette County High School.

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 commitments, 5,015 recommitted their lives to Christ, and 6,494 committed to reading their Bible.
