Fighting with Faith
The Fields Family
Many of you have heard of the new battle with ALS Coach Jimmy Fields is facing. Coach Fields is a vital part of the Trinity Community. This school year Coach Fields will be entering his 6th year as the Varsity Head Football Coach and High School Bible Instructor. He has also served as Trinity’s Head Wrestling Coach for four of those five years.
These platforms have allowed Coach Fields to be an instrument in the spiritual development of our athletes and students here at TCS. Although Coach Fields could have coached at any level, he intentionally chooses to shape the life of the young athlete in the impressionable years of high school. He has always seen his 30+ years of coaching as a ministry, rather than a job. The Lord has been so faithful in using Coach Fields to further the Kingdom-for His glory! As far as the 2020 Crusader football season goes, he has said, “There will be no trying-there will be doing.” GO CRUSADERS!!!
During his tenure at TCS, the Trinity family has rejoiced in the marriages of his two children, Jay and Mallory, and the success of his wife, Shannen. She was the lead female actor in the Christian movie, “Facing the Giants” and is still working in the Christian film industry. Coach Fields remains strong in Christ and is committed to fight this battle with faith! It is now our privilege as brothers and sisters in Christ to reach out to Coach Fields and his family and minister to them in the midst of their trials.
We join Coach Fields and Shannen in their expression of faith in God’s sovereignty as they face uncertainties. Our prayers on their behalf are vital. For those who would like to offer financial support, one way is to donate by cash or check made payable to TCS with the “Fields Family” noted in the memo. Another option is through a gofundme page created for Coach Fields, shared on our TCS Facebook page. For those who wish to contribute through Trinity, we ask that donations be made by September 1st so that we can pass the gift along to the Fields family as soon as possible.
