THE MUSTANG BOWL TO HOST FIELDS OF FAITH EVENT ON OCTOBER 9TH
Students from Sweetwater and surrounding schools will be joining thousands of other youth on athletic fields all across the nation today 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 on this same date.
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 schoolâ€™s athletic field 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 second Fields of Faith event for Sweetwater and The Mustang Bowl. Last year, approximately 750 students and supporters attended at The Bowl. This year Sweetwater is expecting 1,000-1,500 students and adults to attend Fields of Faith locally.
Local churches, businesses, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes have come together to make this event happen and stay in Sweetwater for years to come. The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and hotdogs will be served until the event begins at 7 p.m. and concludes around 9 p.m. Fields of Faith shirts will be available for $5 at the event.
