Fields of Faith is a ministry outreach of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) that was meant to reach out to athletes and other students with the message of Jesus Christ. Fields of Faith is an event that is led for students and is led by the students, usually on a football field or indoor basketball gymnasium.

“I have attended Fields of Faith every year since eighth grade, and every year has been better than the previous,” senior Glory Woolley said. “I have high expectations for this year, and I hope to see people form new relationships and strengthen their own personal relationship with God.”

Fields of Faith got it’s start in 2002 when Oklahoma FCA area director Jeff Martin prayed over his struggles and adversities over the Millennial generation’s battle of the spirit and the temptations that come with growing up in a high tech world. After days of thought and prayer, Martin came up with the idea of students coming together on a common ground and being able to worship. The idea for Fields of Faith was put in motion during late 2002/early 2003 and the first Fields of Faith was held in early October in 2003.

“Fields of Faith is awesome and is a different kind of out of school activity,” junior Skyler Segraves said. “It’s a great way to let people know how to incorporate Jesus into their everyday lives.”

Fields of Faith progressively grew over the past decade until it became an event that was partaken around the country and even has an event being held in South Korea. During the Fall of 2016, Fields of Faith held events on 519 fields with close to 200,000 in attendance. Over 20,000 students either dedicated themselves to Christ, rededicated themselves, or pledged to read their Bible on a daily basis.

“People can expect a good fellowship with friends and with the message being broken up into three parts focusing on the spirit, the soul, and the body,” senior Gary Mossop said.

On Oct. 11, Broken Arrow will be holding their own Fields of Faith event in the Indoor Facility at the Varsity Training Facility. The event will start at 6:30 and will last 2 hours free of charge.
