Parkview Field To Host Fields Of Faith Event On Wednesday

Students from Fort Wayne and the surrounding area will be joining together at Parkview Field on Wednesday, September 23, 2015, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the eleventh annual national Fields of Faith event.

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 to hear fellow students share their testimonies, challenging them to come to faith in Jesus Christ, read the Bible, and attend a local church.

This will be the second Fields of Faith event for schools in the Fort Wayne area to be all together in the same place. Students will gather at Parkview Field at 6:30pm. Last year there were 800 students in attendance.

The national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, more than one million students have joined in the movement. In 2014 alone, more than 185,000 students gathered on 505 fields across 38 statesto participate in the event.
