GATE 4 with the general public. Walk toward the concourse and go left until you reach the prayer check-in table across from the Angel Store. After signing in, prayer intercessors will receive a name tag and be escorted to the Prayer Room. Your family may continue straight into the stadium to find seating for the evening.
The Prayer Room format will include worship, devotion, and Spirit-led prayer during the event. The prayer meeting will take a brief recess before Pastor Greg gives the invitation, so those who also volunteered to serve on the field will have time to get to their posts.

Our Merch Booths serve as on opportunity to connect people with resources that can change their lives. In addition, all of the proceeds received from the Merch Booths help pay for the
Start! Bibles given to new believers and help offset other expenses of the event.
Specifically, Merch Booth volunteers serve others by selling product at each event. They help set up the booths, display the products, answer questions, use a computer to process the sale, and close down the booth when the event is over.
When you check in at the event you will be assigned to a specific booth. Each booth has a lead volunteer called a Merch Booth Coordinator. The coordinator will provide you with a free shirt as a uniform, will provide you with basic training, and will be your "go to" person for any questions you have. They will also give you a generous discount off of any merchandise you'd like to buy from the booth—just a small way of saying "Thank you!" for serving.
When you arrive at the stadium, drive toward the right-field first-base line; we meet there. The Angels sign (the Big A) is on that side. Look for the semi trucks. Park and then sign in at the table on the sidewalk.
At times the work may slow down, but we ask for your patience in waiting for it to pick up (use that time to get to know others). Please know that any time you can give is very helpful. Many hands lighten the load, even if it is only for a few hours! As we approach this event, please pray for every detail of the set-up, how the Lord will use you, and the safety of each volunteer. We appreciate you.
