Is It Worth It?

(written by Angie Glasser, Office Manager)

Several months ago, I was placed with three middle school girls in a Disciple Making Movement (DMM). A DMM is a small group of students meeting weekly where Biblically-based Collision developed curriculum is used to build vision, guide discussions, experience loving accountability, practice sharing the gospel, study the Bible and set goals to multiply the group. 

I was quickly reminded how important expectations are when working with youth, and other staff have said that we should prepare volunteers and student leaders for the challenges that may arise in the beginning stages. Middle school kids can be random. They can be inattentive. Sometimes they show up and sometimes they don’t. I questioned why the process was not going as I thought it would. 

The feelings I have at times are just subtle ways for the devil to prowl and roar. He wants me frustrated. He wants me to give up. He wants me on the sidelines. 

Today, I am encouraged. The DMM has grown to a total of eight girls. Sure, the group will continue to experience some bumps along the way, but I am learning to choose to keep my eyes on the miracle of salvation and the life change that can happen in this type of community. In fact, just last week we heard that three Washington High School students and one Whittier Middle School student gave their lives to Jesus in their various DMMs. Life change is happening throughout the area! 

I am learning that I am not responsible for the results. What I am responsible for is to be faithful, to be consistent and to show up. God is at work, even when I can’t see it. 

So, what was the question again…is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!
  • The continual growth of those getting involved in Collision because of an invitation from a peer. 
  • The leadership shown by so many students. 
Prayer Requests: 
  • Pray for hurting students and families. Winter especially seems to be a difficult time for many. 
  • Pray for a hunger for God’s word among the students. 
  • Pray this week for gospel conversations that students desire to have with specific people.
In Christ, 
Angie Glasser and the Collision Staff
