Students from Matoaca High School will be joining thousands of other youth on athletic fields/gyms all across the nation on October 29, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the eighth annual national “Fields of Faith” event. This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 450 locations throughout the nation during October. 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. Peers invite their own classmates and teammates to meet on their school’s athletic field/gym to hear fellow students share their testimonies, challenge them to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ.
This will be the first “Fields of Faith” event for Matoaca High. This year students and adults will be leading the event on Tuesday night. Athletes, coaches, faculty, fans, and community leaders will gather to hear and participate in an evening of inspiration. Matoaca graduate and local artist Katelyn McCarter will be singing for the event, and teacher athlete and motivational speaker Ben Dyer will also bring a challenge. Students involved in FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) at Matoaca will also participate in this event. Not only will the evening be inspirational but it will spark a spirit of unity and focus among student athletes and those they influence.
The national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, more than 600,000 students have joined in the movement. In 2012 alone, more than 160,000 students gathered on 424 fields across 37 states to participate in the event.
