Youth Alive will host the “See You At The Pole” event for THS on Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 7 a.m. in the high school gym. Mrs. Charla Sharble, Youth Alive sponsor, said all high school students are invited to the rally. There will be breakfast food and live music.

“FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) is not in charge of SYATP. We are postponing our regular Wednesday meeting and encouraging our members to go to the rally since it is a special event. It is also a great opportunity to worship,” commented FCA President, Jace Matteson.

According to http://syatp.com/ a small group of teenagers in Burleson, Texas, came together for a DiscipleNow weekend in early 1990. Little did they know that God was about to move in power. On that Saturday night, the students were broken and burdened for their friends. Compelled to pray, yet not knowing exactly what to do, they went to the school flagpoles and prayed for their friends, schools, and leaders. Those students had no idea how God was using them to birth a movement. Those teenagers, like others who were holding similar prayer meetings at their schools, placed a vision in the hearts of youth leaders across Texas—for students to pray on the same day.

The name See You at the Pole™ came from an early brainstorming session and the vision was shared with 20,000 students in June 1990 at Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas. At 7 a.m. on September 12, 1990, more than 45,000 teenagers met at school flagpoles in four different states to pray. A few months later, youth ministers from all over the country met at a national conference in Colorado. Many reported that their students had heard about SYATP and were equally burdened for their schools. It became clear that students across the country would be taking part. There was no stopping them!

On September 11, 1991, at 7 a.m., an estimated one million students gathered at school flagpoles from Boston to Los Angeles. See You at the Pole™ has grown to God-sized proportions, spreading around the world.
