On-Field Encourager Team

As a volunteer on the Encourager Team, you have the most important role of the night. This event was conceived out of answered prayer and should be fully bathed in prayer before, during and after the event. Encourager volunteers have more specific Do's and Don'ts because of the seriousness of your role, working in direct contact with young people making eternal decisions. Please follow the process and adhere to the procedures. As an Encourager you will be required to wear a specific flourescent yellow FCA VEST during the event. These VESTS will be distributed to you prior to the event at check-in. The distinct and unique color will make it easy to spot the "safe" people. These "safe" people will be the ONLY people allowed on the field during decision time. 

If you have NOT completed and submitted your Encourager Registration (found on this website) we simply cannot allow you to work on the field for security reasons. Please know that it is VERY important that we provide a safe environment with solid, mature Christian men and women working with these new brothers and sisters in Christ and must have time to confirm your application through your pastor. These procedures are in place solely for THAT purpose.


  • We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, trustworthy and true, without error, Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

  • We believe there is only one God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

  • We believe Jesus Christ is God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid for, our sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension/rising up to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18,25; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 9:15-22; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 9:27-28)

  • We believe that acceptance of Jesus Christ and the corresponding renewal of the Holy Spirit are the only paths to salvation for lost/sinful men and women. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives within and guides Christians so they are enabled to live godly lives. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)

  • We believe in eternal life, and that through belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, we spend eternity with the Lord in Heaven. We believe that in rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we receive eternal suffering in hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that all believers are members of His body, the Church. (Philippians 2:1-4)

  • We believe God’s design for sexual intimacy is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman to complement and complete each other. God instituted marriage between one man and one woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9)

  • We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical and spiritual needs of all people; following Christ’s example, we believe that every person should be treated with love, dignity and respect. (Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10)
