More than 200 people attend Fields of Faith


Coming together to read the Bible and hear student testimonies, more than 200 people attended Fields of Faith Wednesday night at the Arkansas City High School football stadium.

“I thought it went very well,” said Dane Straight, Cowley College women’s soccer coach and an organizer of the event. “We had a good crowd and a beautiful night.”

The evening consisted of student testimonies, a praise band (Breakaway, from Bible Baptist College in Springfield, MO), a raffle, and prayer groups with area pastors and youth pastors.

The Cowley College, Arkansas City High School and middle school Fellowship of Christian Athlete Huddles hosted the event. Fields of Faith is a nationwide event that takes place on the second Wednesday of October each year.

“The purpose of Fields of Faith is to get people to gather at a place they are comfortable and challenge them to get back to God by reading the Word,” Straight said. “Students give testimonies and we challenge everyone to 21.5 days reading Gods Word.”

Along with Straight, Adam Glombowski, Northside Baptist youth pastor, helped with the organizing with the students. Cowley College student Will Edwards gave his testimony, while Cowley freshman Courtney Saia helped with planning and contacted area schools to inform them of the event.

Fellow Cowley students Kelsey Coleman and Katelynn Allen set up the schedule of events, while Abigail Hasselbring, Alyssa Schurle, James League, and Melissa Bassoo helped with promoting the event and with set up.

The next Fields of Faith will be the second Wednesday in October, 2014.
