16 Minutes & Some Change
I’m going to change things up this week, and ask you to watch this 16-minute video. Usually, I share similar videos in the “Resources Worth Checking Out” section of our Friday Thoughts, but I don’t want this one to get buried and overlooked.
Sometime in the next few days, please watch this and be encouraged by the difference you are already making in a specific student’s life or identify a specific student you want to invest in. It’s easy to look back on the person, aside from family members, who had the most influence in my life when I was a teenager— my youth minister, Ben Neal. The older I get, the more I value what he did for me and the time he sacrificed to invest in my life.
Just like Ben quickly comes to my mind today, twenty years from now, I hope several students say, “The person who had the most influence in my life is Jordan Collier.” I hope several of our students say the same about you. That’s why we do what we do.
