Goals, Dreams, and Priorities
January 7, 2019
(written by John Glasser, Executive Director)
January is a time for resolutions and creating new habits. As Collision enters into 2019, we have our collective eyes fixed on Jesus. We want to hear His voice, obey His direction, and give Him worship. We believe that God is moving among the young people of Sioux Falls with increased intensity. 

Why do we say that God is moving in a stronger way? I believe it’s because we are living in the last days. Maybe every generation of believers has felt this way, but I see an increase in God convicting young people of sin, giving them a hunger for His word, and calling out so many more into full-time missions. Younger people are more willing than ever to give their lives for the fulfillment of God’s great commission. In the last thirteen years, I have met hundreds of teenagers that are not only looking for truth, but want their lives to be given to expand Christ’s Kingdom. 

Unfortunately, I also see a great lack of biblical knowledge in America. Young people that are Christians are extremely biblically illiterate. I believe that 2019 will be the year of hearing God’s voice through His word. The collective body of Christ in Sioux Falls and surrounding areas need to come back to daily reading of God’s written word. The word of God is the only thing that will give this movement of God the right foundation. The word of God is the only thing that we have, that we pray, and why we worship. This will be a year where the Bible will be at the forefront of our thinking, studying, and discipling. 

Our dream this year is to see 400 disciple making movements by May. This would be approximately between 2,400-3,400 students being discipled every week. I truly believe that God will give us the grace to see this happen. Someone once told me that with new levels come new devils. I also believe that this year will be a year that God allows a refining fire to come. This fire will help equip us, as Psalm 144:1 (ESV) says, “Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.” 

January is a great time for resetting our goals, priorities, and focusing our attention on what is most important. I believe that God is moving quickly around the globe right now and that His Spirit is calling out salvation, healing, and deliverance (HOPE) to those that are broken and contrite in spirit. Stand with us, agree in prayer with us, and join God is what He is doing right now.

We thank God for another year and another opportunity to evaluate our goals, dreams, and priorities.

Two Disciple Making Movements started at Washington High School this morning.  

God is Gracious,
John Glasser and the Collision Staff
Prayer Requests:

There is an opportunity to have Collision Cafe on Saturdays for 100 soccer players at the Avera Dome.  Pray for volunteers who would serve and connect with these multi-cultural students.  

On Thursday at 6 pm, some Harrisburg High School and Middle School students who are interested in Collision are meeting at our office.  Pray that the impact they desire to make at their school will multiply quickly.  If you know others who may be interested in coming on Thursday, please invite them to come.

Pray for the overall health of the Collision staff.
