Northwest High School Students To Host Fields Of Faith Event, Joining Thousands Of Youth Across America On October 8th
(Greensboro, NC) – Students from Guilford County will be joining thousands of other youth on athletic fields all across the nation on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 7 PM. This event will take place at Northwest High School Football Stadium, where students will share their Christian faith with their fellow students. This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 450 High School locations throughout the nation on this same date.
While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker that creates a spectator event, 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 know their faith in Jesus Christ.
“The FCA ministers To and Through Coaches and Athletes. The platform of sports is one that everyone identifies with, no matter race or background. We meet the students where they are and we develop leaders in our schools and teach them how to use the bible for their huddle group studies and in everyday life. Student Athletes make a huge impact to their peers on their campuses. This Fields of Faith event will be one of the best opportunities for students from different schools across Guilford County to minister to each other. We are excited to see how God moves through this event.” Eddie Miller – Triad FCA
This will be the first Fields of Faith event in Guilford County. There is another Fields of Faith gathering which will be held in Rockingham County on Oct. 7th@ 7pm.
The national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, over a million people have joined in the movement. In 2013 alone, more than 170,000 students gathered on 463 fields to participate in the event.
It’s not just those numbers that have FCA organizers excited about Fields of Faith. It’s the real-life impact that these gatherings are having on young people. Last year’s series of events saw 5,397 students make first-time faith commitments to follow Jesus Christ, 7,921 recommitted their life to Christ and 9,834 committed to reading the Bible daily.
“The impact of Fields of Faith has been incredible in just these past few years,” said Les Steckel, FCA president and former veteran NFL coach. “It’s all about young people in these communities coming together on their school’s athletic field and challenging each other to go back to the fundamentals of reading God’s Word and coming to faith in Jesus Christ.”
Fields of Faith challenges this generation to be committed to reading the Bible and living a transformed life for Jesus Christ, It’s students challenging students, peers challenging peers and that’s the heart and soul of Fields of Faith.
