Summer Service Program worker grows into leadership

Summer Service Program worker grows into leadership

Chris Collier or “Captain Chris” uses his high energy to engage the Vacation Bible School children at Living Water Community Church in Chicago. As part of MCC U.S.’ Summer Service Worker program, Collier planned and led the three-week VBS based on the theme of “High Seas Expedition.”

CHICAGO, Il. – “Captain Chris!” yells one child as the leader bounds to the front of the group. The kids clamor to their feet and follow “Captain Chris” as they dance and sing along to a music video blaring, “Can you feel the joy? Don’t it make you wanna jump, jump, jump?”

“Captain Chris” is Chris Collier, an energetic 20-year-old college student who organized and led the three-week Vacation Bible School at Living Water Community Church, a Mennonite Church USA congregation in Chicago. The VBS programming was based on the theme “High Seas Expedition”; hence, Captain Chris.

Collier did this work as a participant in Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) U.S.’ Summer Service Worker (SSW) program, a short-term, leadership development program for young adults from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Like many of this year’s 31 participants, Collier is working with his home congregation.

“It’s a lot of fun, but it’s tiring sometimes,” said Collier, referring to his interactions with the 45 kids, kindergarten through fifth grade, participating in the Bible School. Collier looks right at home, getting the kids excited and engaged in the interactive activities, while finding ways to calm them down when necessary.

It’s no wonder Collier looks like an experienced veteran – he is. Collier started volunteering with the Bible School six years ago. For the first four years he served as a group leader. Last year he was asked to assume the emcee role for some of the larger group activities, and this year he also took on the planning responsibilities.

“I’ve kind of grown into this leadership role,” said Collier. “I appreciate being a leader because it’s taught me how to deal with kids and how I work as a person.”

While planning and organizing the logistics of the daily activities, Collier’s responsibilities also included providing leadership to the other volunteers, many of whom are teenagers, just a few years younger than he is.

“One of the challenges is keeping younger leaders from getting distracted or overexerting their powers,” he said. “I went from friend to boss. When I was telling them to turn off their cell phones and that their first priority is the kids, I thought, ‘I’m growing up!’”

Peter Anderson, youth pastor at Living Water, serves as a mentor and supervisor for Collier in the SSW program. Anderson has seen Collier’s growth firsthand. “It’s been really fun to see him grow and take on new roles and responsibilities,” said Anderson. “He handles it well and knows this program well. He’s taken on a lot of leadership.”

Having mentors for the young leaders is a key part of the program, said Kim Dyer, coordinator of the SSW program. “It’s the role of the church to walk with the participants to help them achieve their leadership goals.

“This program prepares our young adults for the future. They are not only current leaders, but also future leaders in our churches and communities.”

In addition to Collier’s responsibilities with Bible School, he devoted the rest of his summer to working with junior high- and early high school-age kids in the neighborhood, building relationships with them and serving as a sort of role model and mentor.

“They’re already responding to me after a few weeks, which surprised me,” said Collier. “I wasn’t expecting that positive of a response so quickly.” Some of the activities he helps with include “Monday Man Nights” and Wednesday night potlucks.

Collier enjoyed his role with the church so much that he is continuing even after his SSW program term ends. This fall, as he begins his junior year as an education major at Northeastern Illinois University, he has transitioned into MCC’s Church Community Worker program. In this role, he will continue working half-time with the church and building on the relationships he formed this summer.

Two other young adults from the Great Lakes region also participated in the SSW program. Jessica Camacho split her time between Center for Healing and Hope and North Goshen Mennonite Church in Goshen, Ind. Antonio Ewell worked at Lee Heights Community Church in Cleveland, Ohio, where he attends church.

1921 Owen Magnetic Phaeton, Nethercutt Collection

1921 Owen Magnetic Phaeton, Nethercutt Collection

"The car of a Thousand Speeds" ~ the Owen Magnetic ~ was a hybrid.

Nearly 100 years ago.

"Intent on 'Banishing the Commonplace,' the Owen-Magnetic Motor Car Corp.
created automobiles that were anything but ordinary," states The Nethercutt
Collection of Sylmar, Calif. (about a half-hour northeast of Downtown Los

"Building on a multitude of then-new technologies, it offered gasoline-
electromagnetic hybrids."

It was brothers Raymond and Ralph Owens of Cleveland, Ohio, who helped make
automotive history.

They got an early start in building autos, having built some prior to 1900.

"But their efforts to manufacture and sell automobiles were largely
unsuccessful until they paired themselves with Philadelphian Justus Entz,"
Nethercutt notes."

Entz is famous for developing an electromagnetic transmission that had a dual
function as a generator and a clutch transmission.

"R.M. Owen & Co. of New York first installed an Entz transmission in an
Austro-Daimler and exhibited it at the 1914 New York Automobile Show,"
Nethercutt states. "Owen-Magnetic debuted the following year.

"In the Owen-Magnetic car, a gasoline engine drives a flywheel consisting of
six field coils and an iron housing rotating around an armature fixed to the
drive shaft and electric motor armature.

"The speed differential between the engine and armature creates electricity,"
Nethercutt continues, "which is directed by a series of switches and resistors
to power an electric motor behind the generator.

"As the vehicle speed increases, the engine speed and armature speed equalize
and switches allow a magnetic 'lockup,' as the rear motor now becomes a

And that's not all.

"This unit also serves as a regenerative brake until the car slows to about 15
to 25 mph to remove wear and heat from brakes and suspension components,"
Nethercutt states.

"Once the engine is started by this motor/generator, the battery is effectively

out of the circuit, used only for lights and accessories, but recharged by the
rear motor at road speeds."

The Owen-Magnetic was an expensive car from the start.

"Back in 1915," Nethercutt states, "new cars cost an average of $642, but the
Owen-Magnetic carried a price tag of $3,750 ~ more than three times the average

U.S. annual income and more than the median cost of a new home! But buyers were

interested, as were other manufacturers."

Before Entz combined his talents with the Owens, early versions of the Entz
transmission were built into the 1907 and 1908 Columbia Mark 66-3 and a few of
the 1912 Mercers, according to Nethercutt.

"Similar technology would soon be used on other automobiles, trucks and even
the battleship New Mexico," Nethercutt notes. "R.M. Owen & Co. partnered with
Baker Rauch & Lang."

Rauch & Lang, which held the Entz patent from 1915-1919, was an early pioneer
in electric cars, and I've seen two on display at Nethercutt.

As with many car manufacturers, World War I and the accompanying economic
upheaval severely affected the market and depressed the market for Owen-

Raymond Owen moved his company to Wilkes-Barre, Penn., but the move did not
help and soon Owen-Magnetic was just another defunct American automaker.

"This particular Owen-Magnetic was built as a Phaeton in 1921 ~ the last year
of production," Nethercutt notes.

J.B. Nethercutt, who founded The Nethercutt Collection, purchased it from
William Harrah.
