We are launching this year's Pray for Me Campaign on September 22nd! The Pray for Me Campaign partners our youth with adults from our church body who will commit to praying for them for the entire year. This creates a number of intergenerational relationships, as well as provides crucial support for your students through the power of prayer. 
This year, we are preassigning students and prayer champions before the launch date.
*Please register your student & sign up to be a prayer champion by September 15th!
