Fellowship of Christian Athletes offers key global event as it unites faith and sports to impact the world for Jesus Christ
October 12, 2022
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s nearly here — the event tens of thousands of coaches and athletes have been looking forward to for a year! Fields of Faith, Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ (FCA, www.fca.org) annual peer-to-peer event, will take place on athletic fields across the country this Wednesday, October 12, 2022 and promises to see even more lives changed by the Gospel of Christ. During a time of continued unrest in our culture, FCA’s student-driven, student-led outdoor events full of prayer, worship, and commitment to Bible reading are crucial.
“We are so thankful to God for an incredible night of impact on students across the globe,” said FCA Executive Vice President of Ministry Advancement Kellen Cox. “Students will walk away encouraged and inspired to either put their faith in Jesus for the first time, or to deepen their walk with Him. We pray this is just the beginning of a powerful move of God in the lives of the next generation.”
Fields of Faith events are fully student-led. Inspired by their peers, young athletes together read God’s Word, pray, and share personal testimonies — deeply enriching their faith in the process. Congregating on their home athletic fields, thousands each year have experienced the spectacular impact of the Gospel.
FCA’s Fields of Faith understands that an athletic field offers a neutral rallying point for a community of faith believers. Here, on their own home turf and standing side by side, student athletes invite, pray for, share with, and challenge their peers to read the Bible and follow Jesus Christ.
Last year, FCA saw thousands of coaches and athletes reached through Fields of Faith in 2021 — and they’re ready for even more this year. Created by FCA’s Executive Director of Strategic PartnershipsJeff Martin in 2004, Fields of Faith is an effective and highly engaging peer-to-peer event that inspires students to refuel their faith and get back to the basics of reading God’s Word through worship and personal testimonies.
Here are a few of the Fields of Faith testimonies that participants have enthusiastically shared over the years:
- “Powerful night at Fields of Faith! God is doing remarkable things through our students.”
- “Fields of Faith is such a blessing and it was definitely an awesome night!”
- “Went to Fields of Faith last night. Saw lots of people, and best of all, my best friend got saved!”
- “It’s time to spark a spiritual movement for God. Christianity needs a change in momentum—students who stand together against the pressures and temptations in our world, as a generation that is committed to reading the Bible and applying it to their lives. It’s time to Get in the Game and Get in the Book!”

FCA’s theme for 2022 is Every, based on Ephesians 1:3: “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.” FCA reminds Christian coaches and athletes that they already have everything they need in Christ and encourages them to seek Him both on and off the field.
