Panama City Students to Host FCA Fields of Faith Event
The local event will be held at Tommy Oliver Stadium on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 from 6:00 until 8:00pm.
While most Christian events are held by adult speakers or sponsors, FCA's Fields of Faith is a student-to-student ministry, which means that the students themselves are meeting and organizing the whole event. 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.
Fields of Faith began with an idea from Jeff Martin, FCA's Executive Director of Campus Sport Ministry, who longed to help today's generation of students face spiritual battles and temptations. He felt that God was telling him that the answer lay in the students themselves—that they had the power of the Spirit to point the way to Christ for their peers as well as their communities.
"What started out as a thought and a prayer has turned into a huge national event, all through the power of Christ. It's amazing that Fields of Faith has grown to welcome nearly a quarter of a million people to athletic fields where they can pray and worship together," Martin said. "We are so thankful for the students who feel passionate about sharing their faith with their fellow students so they, too, can see how Christ can impact their lives. There's no doubt that God is working through these young people and will continue to do so for years to come."
In 2004, Martin's vision became reality when 6,000 students gathered on school athletic fields throughout three states for the first Fields of Faith event. That was the beginning of what has become one of the most significant faith-related gathering of students in a single day. 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.
