Students from all over Southern Alabama are encouraged to join thousands of other youth on athletic fields all across America on Oct. 8, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the fifth annual “Fields of Faith” event. This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 400 locations throughout the country on the same day.
While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker creating a spectator event, “Fields of Faith” is structured as a student-to-student ministry. Peers invite classmates and teammates to meet on the school's athletic field to hear fellow students share their testimonies.
Last year's series of events saw 1,852 students make first-time commitments to Christ, 4,089 recommitted their life to Christ and 9,149 committed to reading the Bible daily.
