This rapidly growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 500 locations throughout the nation.
Students from Camdenton, Eldon and School of the Osage will join thousands of other youth on athletic fields across the nation in October to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the 15th annual national Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ Fields of Faith event. This rapidly growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 500 locations throughout the nation.
Camdenton, Eldon and School of the Osage will each see Fields of Faith events on October 10. The events will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 10. There is no cost to attend, and community members are welcome.
The School of the Osage Fields of Faith will be on the football field with the high school gym as a bad weather backup.
Eldon’s event will be at Victor Field at Mustang Park with a backup of the Eldon Middle School gym. Bob Shore Stadium will be the site for Camdenton’s event with a backup of the high school gym.
While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker, FCA’s 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 faith in Jesus Christ.
“Fields of Faith is one of the most inspirational nights of the year where students boldly share their faith in God with other students,” said Lake of the Ozarks FCA Area Representative Kathy Wiesen.
According to FieldsofFaith.com, the events start with prayer, then students share their own faith testimonies and challenge their peers to read the Bible and come to faith in Jesus Christ. Typically these events last 45 to 90 minutes.
This will be the 10th year Fields of Faith events have been hosted in the Lake area. Last year, approximately 1,300 students and supporters attended local events.
Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, more than a million people have joined the movement. In 2017 alone, more than 198,000 students gathered on 521 fields, where 6,213 made first-time faith commitments, 5,015 recommitted their lives to Christ, and 6,494 committed to reading their Bible.
