CHARLESTOWN, IN–Above the sound of idling busses and traffic, students gathered to pray. Wednesday morning the Charlestown Middle School Fellowship of Christian Athletes participated in See You At The Pole.

A small group of teenagers in Burleson, Texas felt led by God to pray. Not knowing exactly what to do, they went to the school flagpoles and prayed for their friends, schools, and leaders. This small group of students challenged other schools to do the same. The challenge was named See You at the Pole at a brainstorming session during a meeting of youth leaders. Since 1991, See You at the Pole has grown to God-sized proportions. Within the first few years, the movement began to spread to other nations through missionaries from the U.S. Now each year, an estimated 1 million students from all the world participate in See You at the Pole. Students in more than 64 countries have participated.

The morning began with worship music to greet staff and students as they approached the building. “It’s always a joy to come do this,” stated Tyler Pavey, a local worship minister. FCA leaders Skyler Green and Emily Miller then led a short devotional to the students in attendance. Finally, all students were given the opportunity to pray. “It brings people together and allows them to get closer to Jesus,” said Vanessa Gogel. She has participated each year at CMS.
