Big announcement: Dare 2 Share LIVE 2018 is on for October 13, 2018!

September 23rd, 2017—the day of the first ever Dare 2 Share LIVE event—was a history-maker. Thousands of teens across the country from Alaska to Florida gathered in local churches for a day of worship, gospel training, and outreach to advance the message of Jesus. 

From the training to the worship to the timing of the emcees to the local outreaches, everything synced like clockwork. There was one point where 10,000 teens and adults were praying simultaneously for revival out loud from coast to coast! 

One of the most exciting things for me was watching the map of gospel conversations on the Dare 2 Share Live app blow up as teens uploaded videos that triggered gospel convos with their peers! I loved watching the pictures and videos from the local sites  streaming onto the social media feed on the app. It was a national party in honor of Jesus!

First, there is the shock and utter disbelief. How does this kind of thing happen? Could it have been prevented somehow?

5 powerful takeaways from doing an unprecedented youth ministry event, Dare 2 Share Live!

Last Saturday we had the honor of doing something unprecedented before in the history of youth ministry...a live simulcast event to 68 cities across the United States.

There was no one or two hour delay. It was truly live.

People would ask me what to expect. I would describe it and then say (much to the chagrin of my staff) "Well, it looks good on paper. But we won't really know until we do it."

Now we know and, quite honestly, God blessed it in spectacular ways. Although the final attendance numbers fell short of our goals, we were blown away by the overall event and how it mobilized a generation in one day to say together #LetsGo!

So the ground-breaking new book, The Teen’s Guide to Social Media & Mobile Devices by my friend Jonathan McKee, became required reading for my sweet (not-so-little-anymore) daughter.

The Sizzle and Steak of Revival

Every great revival has both sizzle and steak. The sizzle is the rally point for the revival, the shock and awe of an event or a moment that captures attention, imaginations and hearts.
