  • See You at the Pole

 See You at the Pole is about student-initiated, student-led prayer. The dream behind SYATP is that a day committed to global prayer, especially at schools, would be a springboard to praying year-round, leading to a moral and spiritual awakening as students seek to love and serve their schools.

Pray to God with your friends in middle school, high school, college – as you pray for one another and your friends, school, community, country, and world.

This year, SYATP DAY September 25that 7:00 am at your school’s flagpole.

The Forge Conference at LCU, October 25 – 26

 Registration for The Forge Conference 2019 at Lincoln Christian University is OPEN. LCU’s fourth annual junior high (6th-8th Grade) overnighter will be held October 25 – 26.

The purpose of The Forge Conference is to create opportunities for Jr. High students (6th– 8thgrade) to make their faith their own. Instead of relying on their parents’ or youth pastor’s faith, our aim is to encourage and equip them to create their own personal relationship with God and jump-start their desire to seek Jesus Christ in all aspects of their lives.

Space is limited, so register soon! Register by October 11 to make sure you get a t-shirt. Cost for the whole weekend is $45 per student.

All necessary forms can be found HERE.
