Message From Andy (Youth Minister)

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
- 2 Chronicles 7:14

See You At The Pole Day is one of my fondest memories from middle school and high school.  We were blessed at Gate City to have an active Fellowship of Christian Athletes that sponsored a morning prayer meeting every day in the gym, but See You At The Pole Day was a special time where we got outside the walls of the school to gather around the flag pole and lift up our school, our community, and our country in prayer.  

Did you know that, this year, I only heard of one school in Kingsport having a See You At The Pole event? 

One of the biggest things about See You At The Pole Day is that it must be STUDENT-LED.  We had a time of prayer at our church’s flag pole at J.A.M. for See You At The Pole Day last week, and I emphasized this point to our youth.  They can be the ones to create that spark at their schools!  A year will pass between now and See You At The Pole Day next September, and my prayer is we will see that spark turn into a flame by then to set our schools on fire for Jesus!
