VINEMONT, Ala. – Students and faculty members from Vinemont’s schools met around the flagpole in front of Vinemont High School Wednesday morning for a moment of prayer as part of the 2019 observance of “See You at the Pole,” a global day of student-led prayer for schools, faculty, staff and fellow students.

The event, which began in 1990 with a group of students in Texas visiting local schools one evening to pray, has grown into an organized movement involving an estimated one million students per year in 64 countries today.

On its website, the group says:

“God is continuing to call His people to repentance and prayer. Countless inspiring testimonies of how He has used See You at the Pole™ to bring students to Christ and to change lives affirm God’s power to answer those who cry out to Him in humble dependence. Bible clubs, weekly prayer meetings, and other ministries have begun on campuses where students participated in See You at the Pole.”

Cullman County School Superintendent Dr. Shane Barnette joined the students in Vinemont, saying afterward, “I was proud to get to attend the national event at Vinemont High School in which a great number of students and teachers gathered to pray for each other and our nation as a whole.  Great way to start off my morning.”
