A pretty significant event in many high school ministries is See You At The Pole™ (SYATP), held the fourth Wednesday of September. For college ministries, it isn’t quite as big a deal.
But maybe it should be.
A friend showed me an Instagram pic from the Lone Star College–CyFair Cru movement telling about SYATP. CyFair, in Cypress, Texas, is a community college of about 20,000. TC, the Cru leader for the last six years, told me they have had 100-130 involved each year.
On Wednesday, September 23, they will join a local high school ministry to pray before first period. They’ve been doing this for several years.
Why is this such a big deal?
Here are three reasons why.
So why not plan to join with many Christian organizations across the nation who will be praying around their school’s flagpole on Wednesday, September 23? And if you happen to know some who are gathering around a high school flagpole, why not join them there? You just might start something that will continue on past the first bell.
Fraternity Brother Dalton Hook entered university thinking he it was about partying and studying. He never expected to find God there, and pray and receive Christ in May of 2011 at Greek Summit, a summer trip for Greek Students involved with Cru.
If you’re leading a team then you know you that this is crunch time. There are a few precious weeks with these people who have been entrusted to your care before your staff peel off to focus on MPD and prepare for their summer assignments. You can help your team end well by reminding them that they are not lone rangers. You can lead a discussion on what it means to be a TEAM.
