Fields of Faith
Happy Friday, y’all! I’m today’s guest blogger today… For those I’ve never met, my name is Kirby (Flockhart) Davidson. I’m the youngest of the Flockhart bunch.
I am an area representative for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Paulding County, Georgia. God called me into ministry when I was an 18 year old high school senior, and I began interning with FCA in the summer of 2015 before coming on staff officially in March 2016. I want to share some information with you on our biggest event of the year!
Students from East Paulding, North Paulding, Hiram, Paulding County, & South Paulding will join thousands of other youth on athletic fields across the nation on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, to share their Christian faith with fellow students. This event will be the 13th annual national Fellowship of Christian Athletes Fields of Faith; a rapidly growing, interdenominational outreach event that is held at more than 500 locations throughout our nation.
Fields of Faith is not just about the number of seats we fill… It’s about the authentic life – change that takes place at these gatherings in the lives of young people. Last year’s Fields of Faiths saw nearly 6,000 students make first – time faith commitment to follow Jesus Christ.
While Fields of Faith has it roots with FCA leadership, the event is designed to include multiple national Christian organizations, local churches, and ministries. We have collected nearly 2,000 water bottles that were donated from local churches right here in Paulding County!
We have also been raising money to provide over 1,500 people with pizza at our FOF event. These pizza funds have been donated by Paulding County citizens, businessmen, & friends. We would not be able to host this event without the amazing support of our local churches, donors, & volunteers. SO THANK YOU!
FCA is a faith – funded ministry. This means I’m expected to raise my own support and salary. Every single dollar that is donated to FCA will go to impact the kingdom of God; specifically students in Paulding County.
