Fields of Faith is October 12 in Texarkana
Fields of Faith is Wednesday, October 12 at Pleasant Grove’s Hawk Stadium in Texarkana for the fourth annual event. The 6PM event is free and the first 1,000 students to arrive will be fed for free.
Fields of Faith is sponsored by Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is a student-led event in which students can feel comfortable to bring friends to pray with, as well as share their Christian faith with their peers. The purpose of meeting on an athletic field is to provide a neutral place for students to feel comfortable to express their faith in Jesus in an interdenominational atmosphere. Students will hear from local high school athletes and coaches as well as national speakers.
We’ve had a great turn out with no less than 2,500 students attending the past few years,” said youth pastor Adam Sloan, event volunteer. “We expect our largest turnout this year because of the overwhelming community support we have received. Many of the area churches will suspend youth services that evening so students can attend this event.”
Fields of Faith will be held on the football field of Pleasant Grove’s Hawk Stadium at 5406 McKnight Road in Texarkana, Texas.
