Get in the Game and Get in the Book – Fields of Faith
Field of Faith events challenge our youth to stand together, get in the game and get in the book. In a world that is filled with pressures and temptations, students are challenges to stand their ground, share their faith and change a culture.
Fields of Faith, a ministry outreach of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), is a student-led event where students pray for, share with, and challenge their peers to read the Bible and follow Jesus Christ. This is an opportunity for students to stand together, share their faith and to change a culture. In a world that is filled with pressures and temptations, students need to stand their ground.
The message of Fields of Faith is that the Bible is God’s word and it will guide you to a meaningful life if you follow it with all your heart, soul and mind. Fields of Faith was inspired by the story of King Josiah in 2 Chronicles. An FCA Director from Oklahoma had been praying about his frustration with the temptations and spiritual battles that face our youth, one he considers a spectator generation. King Josiah was an influential teenager that gathered his people and challenged them to read God’s Word and as a result, they changed a culture.
Fields of Faith events are held in neutral stadiums across the country for students in the community to do just that – to stand together, to get in the game and get in the Book. On Oct 5, a Fields of Faith event was held on Todd Field at the McNamara Stadium in Hastings. Several NLA students joined the over 100 students from the community to stand up and influence their culture.
