BREAKING: See you at the Pole addresses issue through prayer, worship

“I am one of the teachers that help organize it, the students are ultimately the ones running the event. What I like most about SYATP is that the students voluntarily come to pray for their community, fellow students, and school. I enjoy the fact that it is student-led, both in leading prayer and putting together the worship. See You at the Pole is another way for the school to come together as a body and worship Jesus.”
