The Role of Prayer Team
These informationals are done simultaneously alongside Co-Chair, Crew Chair and Media Chair Applicants. We highly recommend you attend one of these to gain insight into the direction of Impact as a whole and this role specifically. There are two options to attend:
Sunday, October 7th @ 8:30 PM — Christ UMC — 4201 St Hwy 6 South
* actual informational at the back of the property, in the Youth Building
Monday, October 8th @ 6:30 PM — FBC College Station — 2300 Welsh Ave
* actual informational in the main Sanctuary
Prayer Teamers serve as a unique complimentary role to the leadership of Impact. Their primary function is to go before the Lord on behalf of Impact for the incoming freshmen class and usher in an attitude of prayer and thanksgiving for the entire staff of Impact. As a Prayer Teamer, you are privileged with leading counselors in weekly prayer for the freshmen class. Additionally, you and your prayer team partner will support your co-chairs in an effort to build unity, fellowship and an attitude of service within the camp, all in an effort to display a glimpse of community to the freshmen class while ultimately aiming to connect the freshmen with the body of Christ at Texas A&M and Blinn. At Impact Retreat in August, Prayer Team is on a 24-hour rotation, praying without ceasing as we lift up the freshmen class.
