Houston High School students will be joining thousands of other youth on athletic fields all across America on Wednesday, Oct. 12, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the sixth annual national Fields of Faith event.
This rapidly growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 475 locations throughout the nation on this same date. The Houston event will be hosted at 7 p.m. at Tiger Stadium.
While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker that creates a spectator event, Fields of Faith is structured as a student-to-student ministry movement. 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.
Members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at HHS will speak at the rally, which is hosted by the FCA in conjunction with the Youth Leaders of Texas County.
“I get goose bumps thinking about the impact this field will have on our youth and on our community,” said Sandy Cremer, FCA adviser. “I’m so proud of the FCA members who have stepped up and taken a leadership role in this inaugural event.”
