Fields of Faith 2019 event set for October 9

Students from Waukon High School will join thousands of other youth and any others who may be interested on athletic fields across the nation Wednesday, October 9 to share their Christian faith with fellow students and the general public. The local event is now in its eighth year and will start at 7 p.m. at the Waukon High School football field that Wednesday evening. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the Waukon High School gymnasium.

Featured speaker for this year’s event will be Michael De Jong, a resident of Iowa who is a husband and father to five children. He will share his message of how Jesus rescued and saved him during the darkest moments of his life.

Also speaking at the event will be a trio of area high school students including Waukon High School senior Dawson Baures, Waukon High School junior Maddie Helgerson and MFL/MarMac High School senior RoseMary McGeough. They will be joined by young adults Taylan Seaman and Kade Kroeschell in sharing their messages of faith and life.

Sharing their musical talents during the Fields of Faith event will be the sister trio of the Perryman Sisters. According to their biography, teenage sisters Megan and twins Morgan and Makayla have a passion for writing songs that people can connect with and see their need for Jesus.

Fields of Faith is structured as a student-to-student ministry. Peers invite their own classmates and teammates to meet on their school’s athletic field to hear fellow students share their testimonies, challenge them to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ.
