BIRMINGHAM — Students around the globe are expected to participate in the 30th annual See You at the Pole (SYATP) event on Wednesday, Sept. 23.
SYATP is a student-led mission designed to unite young people through prayer. Tomorrow, millions of students will meet virtually or in-person at their school’s flagpole for a time of prayer.
First Priority Greater Birmingham, the local SYATP coordinator, is strongly
encouraging students to follow all applicable local school guidelines and mandates. Due to the pandemic, students may have to adapt (time, date, place, even consider online options) for their school or area.
Some schools have not returned to school full-time, allowing them to
delay their SYATP meeting to a later date. First Priority has suggested Wednesday, Oct. 28 as an alternative date.
“See You at the Pole this year will be like no other,” said First Priority Greater Birmingham Ministry Director Debi DeBoer. “Whether students are on campus or learning remotely, prayer will happen. As a nation, we need to return to the Lord and repent for present and past sins. Only then can relationships be restored and healing begin. Awaken our hearts, revive us or we can slumber and watch another generation be without hope.”
According to a release from First Priority, See You at the Pole is a student-initiated, student-led movement that started in 1990 with a single youth group. Today, it reaches students in multiple countries around the world.
