Host a Field

Are you interested in bringing Fields of Faith to your campus?  Many others across the country have taken the first step…let’s get started!

What typically happens at a Field?

Fields of Faith Introduction. (Leadership Team)
Prayer. (Student Leader)
Reading of 2 Chronicles 34:31. (Leadership Team)
Impact Student Testimonies. (Student Leaders)
Impact Adult Challenge. (Adult Leaders)
A closing challenge by an Adult Leader. (Youth Pastor/Adult Leaders)

Note about Worship:

A worship band isn’t required. Some fields choose to use a band and that is perfectly fine.  Fields of Faith isn’t a concert, it’s a night where the word of God is read publicly and students are challenged.

Student Leader

You are the driving force in helping to bring Fields of Faith to your area. Without your passion and commitment the Field won’t take off.

  • Hang signs and posters inside your school.
  • Take advantage of your position as a student to get the word out.
  • Support Fields of Faith by wearing official gear.
  • If you are going to be giving your student testimony use the Student Testimony Manual.

Adult Leader

You work alongside the Student Leaders and Youth Pastors to help bring Fields of Faith to your area. You are a supporter.

  • Help select your Impact Students, who will speak at your event.
  • Working with your school(s) / church(es) / business(es) to promote your Field.

Youth Pastor

You will provide spiritual direction and you will help bring together churches in the area and rally support around your Field.

  • Help unite area pastors and churches around your Field
  • Help select your Impact Students and Impact Adult, who will speak at your event.
  • Deliver the Impact Student and Adult Manual to each Impact Student and your Impact Adult Working with your school(s) / church(es) / business(es) to promote your Field.

Note for Youth Pastors

You will act as the spiritual barometer of your Field and ensure that the three key components of Fields of Faith come to fruition.  The three key components of Fields of Faith are: bring many people together at one time, students read Scripture and share personal testimonies, and students challenge fellow students to read the Word of God and come to follow Jesus Christ.

Your position in the community is why your influence is so important. You know your students, other youth group students, area churches, schools and a variety of community contacts. By bringing everyone together for Fields of Faith, regardless of denomination, you can maximize the reach of your Field. When churches in a community unite for a Fields of Faith rally, the potential spiritual impact is tremendous!

Your Leadership Team

Your Leadership Team must be created and is a vital part of bringing Fields of Faith to your area.

Forming Your Leadership Team

The size of your team will reflect the size of your community. Here are the basic people to target:

  • Key youth pastors in the community
  • Several student leaders

Identifying people for your Team is important. Pray and identify the people in the community that have their finger on the pulse of youth ministry in the area.
