If you see a large crowd of young people gathering at KWC’s baseball field Wednesday night, don’t be alarmed. Area students will be converging upon KWC’s campus for the Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s “Fields of Faith” program at 7pm on Wednesday, October 8th. Every year on the second Wednesday in October, FCA promotes the Fields of Faith event nationwide as a chance for students to challenge and encourage each other to “Get in the game and get in the book.” The Owensboro event is open to the greater Owensboro area and all schools are invited.
Students from several high schools will be leading the event, which will include worship, prayer huddles, and “cardboard testimonies.”
“Fields of Faith is going to be absolutely amazing,” says Avery Skortz, a student at OHS who is on the planning committee for the event. “I think I speak for us all when I say that we are ready and excited for God to pour his love on us at FOF. I pray for a huge turnout and for us all to leave FOF as newly changed people.” Avery attended FCA Leadership Camp last summer and has been involved in FCA ever since. She will be a part of the cardboard testimonies skit and will also be giving her testimony for the first time.
Hannah Coomes has also been involved in the planning for Fields of Faith, and is very excited to be leading worship. “I think that everyone comes to Jesus in different ways. Whether that be listening to someone’s testimony, hearing a devotion that touches home, or listening to worship music,” Coomes said. “For me, God has blessed me with a beautiful gift and there is no other way I would want to use it than by glorifying His name.”
The night will conclude with “prayer huddles” where students will have a chance to pray for their schools, friends, and families.
With local students leading the event, and students from around the region involved, Fields of Faith is sure to be a high-energy night. If you would like to join, just follow the lights on the field to KWC’s baseball field Wednesday night.
