FCA and CCYLA to host 2nd annual Fields of Faith event

-A A +A

 The Bible talks about faith that can move mountains. Last year, Campbell County saw denominational barriers removed as hundreds of people gathered at Jacksboro Middle School for Fields of Faith.

Local youth leaders want to build off the success of last year’s success as they host the second annual Fields of Faith. They hope for a bigger, more far-reaching event.

This year, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Campbell County Youth Leaders Alliance will host Fields of Faith at Campbell County High School on Oct. 3.

“We’re expecting a large crowd this year, and preparing for that,” local youth pastor Brian Miracle said. “Last year we had between 700 and 800.”

This year, Miracle is hoping for bigger crowds. He said he wants to see over 1,000 people come to Fields of Faith this year.

“With the huge success the event was, we think we’ll have that,” Miracle said.

Miracle also hopes to draw people from surrounding areas.

“One thing we’re trying to do different from last year is we’re trying to reach into surrounding areas,” Miracle said, referencing Anderson County and Cumberland Gap. “They don’t have FCA or Fields of Faith.”

The event will begin at 6:30 p.m.

“Got a good line-up,” Miracle said.

There will be student testimonies, performances by Christian Rap group Down South Disciples, local Gospel group the Birdsongs, and the speaker will be Chaplain Roger Woods from the University of Tennessee.
