After the Columbine High School massacre on April 20,1999, I was forever changed. Because I knew a lot of teenagers at this school, I was determined to do what I could do to prevent future shootings. So I launched full time into Dare 2 Share because I believed (and still do) that teenagers can reach the bad, the broken, the bullied and the bullies with the lasting hope that only Jesus can offer them.
Teenagers come to Christ quicker and spread the gospel faster. That’s why I’m excited about Dare 2 Share Live, a single day of coast-to-coast gospel conversations led by a generation of Jesus loving, on-fire-for-God, ready-to-serve-their-cities teenagers.
This new event will allow us to train more teenagers in one day than we had previously been able to train in a year. I believe we can change this nation in a day. The gospel is that powerful and teenagers are that revolutionary.

A Teen Movement of Biblical Proportions
One day. One message. One hope.
DENVER, CO— National non-profit organization Dare 2 Share is taking a different approach to motivating young Christians to share their faith, getting them out of the youth room and into the community!
On September 23, 2017, the organization will launch Dare 2 Share Live, a national, live, multi-site training and outreach event designed to spark a movement of gospel conversations across the nation, primarily through teenagers.
Dare 2 Share Live represents the next phase in Dare 2 Share’s mission to mobilize a larger number of young people reach their generation with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Driven from one live event in Denver, Colorado and broadcast out to 50+ locations across the country, thousands of teenagers and adult leaders will be inspired and equipped to share their faith in a relational way and then, at the exact same time, released into their communities for an afternoon of service and outreach.
They’ll return back in the evening for a celebration of praise and stories for all that God accomplished in and through them.
With 250,000 gospel conversations happening during that day, Dare 2 Share Live will raise the profile of evangelism within youth ministries across the country and ignite a movement of gospel conversations in the church at large.
On the day of Pentecost, “about three thousand were added to their number that day.” Imagine what could happen on this day!
