FCA Fields of Faith is a peer-to-peer event. Students invite their own classmates and teammates to hear fellow students share their testimonies, be challenged to read the Word of God and follow Jesus Christ. An athletic field provides a neutral, interdenominational rally point where a community can come together.
Plan: 1. Bring many people together at one time. 2. Read Scripture and share personal testimonies. 3. Be challenged by fellow students to read the Word of God and to follow Jesus Christ.
Fields of Faith Reports from the East GA FCA area:
“Toombs County's Fields of Faith met at The Pit on 10/12 at 7:00. Thirty-five people showed up. To be honest, I was a little disappointed with the turnout but we'd had a few issues with the planning and some last minute changes. As I was sitting at there that night, I had a huge realization: this event was NOT about me, or how big I could make it, or how many people came. It was about The Lord, and showing the importance of scripture in your relationship with Christ. I began to see those 35 as MORE than enough. The numbers didn’t matter; it was the message that was important. We gave these students a place to meet and talk about scripture and a relationship with Christ, and THAT was the big win. It showed me once again that The Lord had a different plan for my “big event”. Mary Bennett, FCA Volunteer Staff
“There are a lot of unknowns when doing things like fields of faith. I had a speaker coming from the Savannah area, a music leader from Macon, student testimonies from teenagers coming from different school systems and grade levels, food coming from a business on one end of the county, and drinks coming from a church on the other end. To see the way in which God brought everything together to work in harmony in the way it did was truly amazing. Everything shared, said, and prayed throughout the event seemed to build on itself to drive home one solid point that was clearly heard by those in attendance as could be seen by the tears on the faces of students, parents, and coworkers. The event itself was a testament to God's greatness, as He brought His resources together in the manner He did, resulting in students confronting sins in their lives, asking God for a renewed and refreshed spirit, and praying for God to give them the courage to stand out in this society.”Tim Peavy, FCA Huddle Coach Tattnall
“We had a great time this year at Fields of Faith 2012 at Swainsboro High School. We had a great crowd and a wonderful time of worship with the Band called Eternity's Edge. We were truly blessed when we heard our speaker Derrick Moore the Chaplain for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. He brought a inspiring message and challenge to each and every one of us. Fields of Faith is a great ministry that our community in Emmanuel County can be involved in. Many seeds were planted on this night and now we get to watch them grow in Christ. I would like to thank the Mill Creek Foundation for providing the financial means so this event could take place.” Paul Leigh, FCA Volunteer and Youth Pastor FBC Swainsboro
“On Wednesday, October 10th Vidalia High School joined hundreds of other schools across the nation for Fields of Faith. We had close to 200 students and adults to join us for a great night of fellowship. A local youth pastor started us off with praise in worship songs. Two VHS students gave their testimonies. We ended in prayer groups and then one big circle of prayer. It was a great night!! Students from VHS have already asked when we will do this again.” Candace Chomskis, FCA Huddle Coach
