Joining thousands of youth across the U.S., members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will host Fields of Faith at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 12 at Bayfield High School.
Pagosa Springs students will also participate to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the 14th annual national FCA 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.
Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, more than a million people have joined the movement. In 2016 alone, more than 192,000 students gathered on 519 fields, where 7,414 made first-time faith commitments, 8,612 recommitted their lives to Christ, and 8,781 committed to reading their Bible. While Fields of Faith has its roots with FCA leadership, the event is designed to include multiple national Christian organizations, local churches and ministries. A local leadership team will determine the program of each Fields of Faith event. More information about the 2017 Fields of Faith event is available at FieldsofFaith.com.
