See You At The Pole

For the over 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.

There are two opportunities to unite in prayer with your friends:

  • DAY: SEE YOU AT THE POLE day is on Wednesday, September 27, at 7:00 a.m. local time. All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. SEE YOU AT THE POLE is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer for your generation.
  • WEEK: The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER (Sunday, September 24 through Saturday, September 30) encourages students to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the week. Whether you attend PUBLIC SCHOOL, PRIVATE SCHOOL, or HOME SCHOOL, gather your friends wherever and whenever and pray! The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER is dedicated to prayer and launching your on-campus Bible clubs, prayer strategies, and student ministries.

Parents need a break too.  Our students want to help parents, while parents help us with raising money for our summer mission camp.  Our students and helpers want to help parents by planning an evening of events for kids (ages 4 – 10 yrs), including meals and games while parents are able to get a few hours off.  Kids can be dropped off at 5:30pm and children need to be picked up at 9pm. The cost is $10 per child and includes the cost of food.

All events will be held in the Family Life Center, and kids will be supervised by students and adults through the night. To come, please be sure to sign up so we can make plans for you to attend.
