During our time together at Overflow, we want to make sure that times of altar ministry are as smooth and effective as possible. There will be several opportunities for altar ministry. For those of you who respond and come to the altar, these times are not only important to you, but to us as well. It’s a time when you can encounter Jesus, His presence, and His power. We take it very seriously who prays for you and what takes place at the altar which why we believe it should be dne decently and in order.

We want to take a moment to get everyone acquainted with the protocol for altar ministry:
1. Only altar workers with event lanyards should be praying for students during times of altar ministry.
2. If you are a youth leader/chaperone, you are allowed to pray with your group at the altar.
3. Youth leaders please pray for your group only unless you are otheR-wise instructed.
4. We ask guys pray with guys, and girls pray with girls unless in groups where two or more of each gender is present.
5. If a situation or concern should arise please find a ministry leader wearing a conference lanyard.
