There are about one billion young people in the world today between the ages 12-19. That's a lot of teenagers! How can all of them be reached with the Gospel? I'm convinced there is a way.
This morning while chatting with my friend Brian Aaby at a Starbucks I was floored by a term that he used to describe how Lead THE Cause impacts students. He said that our full-week evangelism training boot camp "normalizes risk."
We just finished our first Global Summit at Dare 2 Share. It was powerful.
"Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” Ephesians 5:14
"The Christian world is in a deep sleep. Nothing but a loud voice can waken them out of it!" George Whitefield, 1739
It's time to wake up our churches to the need for revival and spiritual awakening. It's time to answer the Holy Spirit's wake up call!
Last week while at Moody Radio I met one of their sound engineers and social media specialists, Hannah Lynn. Later I discovered that it was because of her unofficial endorsement of me and the ministry impact of Dare 2 Share that I got on the Karl and June morning show! They had no idea who I was and Hannah assured them that I wasn't that crazy. :)
Today I had the honor of interviewing Arthur Blessitt, the cross-carrying, world traveling, on-fire-for-Jesus evangelist! It was a blast! You need to watch the interview and then go to his Facebook page where you can watch us both carry one of the crosses he's walked around the world! What a fascinating man of God he is!

Charles Spurgeon once said that if you want to set a house on fire you should start the fire in the basement...because fire burns upward. He was referring to the strategic nature of reaching the poor and broken of a city with the Good News of the Gospel. Spurgeon contended that as the poor of a city were reached that the fire of the Gospel would burn "upward" to the rest of the city.
