In this month's episode of Gospelize, Greg is starting the third part of a seven-part series on how you can build a Gospel Advancing Ministry. In this part, we are focusing on how as leaders, we have to embrace and model a Gospel Advancing Ministry.
Youth ministry is often dismissed as something less than strategic in far too many churches. Some even view it as a kind of glorified babysitting. In their thinking, teens need just enough games and God to keep them coming back....until they are old enough to make a difference in the church.
The unspoken implication is that teenagers aren't "real members" until they are old enough to have jobs, give offerings and serve in the big boy/big girl roles of the church.
But Jesus didn't wait for the disciples to get out of their teen years to appoint them as "real" apostles. He appointed them to lead the charge while they were still in their teen years.
Do you find that hard to believe? Then check out Matthew 17:24-27 where Peter, Jesus and the disciples go to Capernaum but only Peter and Jesus pay the Temple Tax. If you cross reference this passage with Exodus 30:14 you'll see that this particular tax, originally the Tabernacle Tax, was only applicable to those 20 years and older.
Imagine if you could give the teens in your youth group an app that made sharing the Gospel both easy and engaging.
Imagine if this app could remind them to pray for, care for and share the good news of Jesus with their unreached friends, classmates, teammates and family members.
Imagine your teens using it to form or join faith sharing groups for accountability and encouragement when it comes to reaching their friends for Christ.
Imagine this app helping to raise the temperature for evangelism and discipleship in your youth group like never before
Well imagine no more. This app is now available for free on the app store. It's just the app you've been waiting for to help get your teens to "dare to share" the hope of Jesus clearly and confidently.

Two years ago when we kicked off our first Dare 2 Share LIVE event, we had no idea if it would work. Nobody had ever attempted a live, coast-to-coast youth ministry event designed to mobilize a generation for the Gospel.
In this months episode Greg begins a 7 part series on how you can build a Gospel Advancing Ministry. In this first part - Greg breaks down the first value, "Intercessory Prayer Fuels It."
Have you ever gotten a wake up call while staying at a hotel? These calls tend to be jarring because hotel phones, for whatever reason, tend to be loud. They are necessary, but often unwelcome...especially to deep sleepers.
