What inspired the start of the ISC 24/7 Squad?
The 24/7 Squad began as a result of a series of sermons at the 2001 South Pacific Regional Student Convention. It began as a concept and has taken on a life of its own, rooted and grounded in God’s Word. The 24/7 Squad is based on four principles found in the following Scripture verses:
- Commitment—Jeremiah 24:7
- Worship—Psalm 24:7
- Obedience—Exodus 24:7
- Wisdom—Proverbs 24:7
What are the qualifications to be a 24/7 Squad member?

- Have graduated from a school using the A.C.E. curriculum.
- Are in school but past the age of competition.
