First Glance

In light of Goss’ recently passed mission conference weekend, I thought that I would dedicate this blog post today to the missions organization that I work most closely with – First Glance.  For those that may not know, First Glance is a non-profit whose mission statement is : to connect students and their communities to Christ and the Church through loving, non-threatening avenues.  The First Glance building is located on Kenmore boulevard, just 3 blocks away from us at Goss.

Here are 5 things that you may not know about First Glance:

1) They have over 2,000 middle-school and high-school students in their database.

2) They have over 100 volunteers that assist with their programs.

3) As a result of Goss and First Glance’s partnership, an average of 6-10 First Glance students attend Goss’ Youth Group program per week.  Last year, we saw over 60 different students attend Goss from the community.

4) I am on the extended staff team at First Glance, attend recreational nights twice a month, and attend the Open Plate program every Sunday night.  My wife also volunteers twice a month on Tuesdays.  We do this to build relationships with the students and the leaders to connect students to Christ and the Church.

5) There are a bazillion ways to get involved with First Glance.  No matter your age, income, gender, ethnic background, or amount of time you have, I promise there is a way for you to be involved.  Please talk to me if you feel God is tugging at your heart to be involved.

Here is the First Glance website, and First Glance facebook page.

Jesus’ last command to us was to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”  There are unreached people in Nepal, and there are unreached youth in our backyard.  Would you pray that God would draw the youth of this city unto Himself?  Would you be willing to get involved with this ministry?
