Announce your class and proudly display your award recipients with 2 brand new P.R.A.Y. posters!

The P.R.A.Y. Program poster displays the four medals for Protestant and Independent Christian Churches under the banner “Building Faith in Youth.” Use this attractive poster in your church or meeting place to invite others to join your program. Let everybody who comes in your building know that you’re using the P.R.A.Y. program to help children grow in faith. Space is provided at the bottom to add a local contact and/or to include the dates and times for your classes.

The P.R.A.Y. Recipient Poster can be displayed year-round to proudly announce the young people who earned a P.R.A.Y. award. Record their names and the completion date.  Use this poster to challenge ALL Protestant youth to earn their P.R.A.Y. award and to remind award recipients to continue their journey and enroll in the next level. Have a strong mentor program? Include the names of your mentors or get a separate poster just for them. Have a long-standing ministry with the P.R.A.Y. Program? Order a poster for each year of your ministry and display the names “through the years.” Each poster can list up to 30 names per program level. 

Both posters are 13.25” x 19.25” and come folded down to 6.625” x 9.625”.

Congratulations to the American Heritage Girls, the only youth agency to show an increase in 2012!

P.R.A.Y. reports a 4% decline in the overall usage. God and Life and the Four Star Recognition are the only two awards that showed increases.  Among the denominations, the United Methodist Church is the top user of the P.R.A.Y. program with 6642 recipients, and the Presbyterian Church of America increased over 150 recipients for a 66% increase.
