It's time to rally for the one thing that can truly change everything!

What brings true and lasting change? For us as believers, it's not politics, policies or protests. It's the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ with our lives and lips! Henry David Thoreau once said, "For every thousand hacking at the branches of evil, only one strikes at the root." Only the gospel of Jesus Christ can strike at the root of evil. Only the gospel of Jesus Christ can bring true unity to our churches, our communities and our country.

That's why Dare 2 Share is promoting a unifying message of hope during a season in which there is far too much division in our country.

By providing a rally point on 10/10/2020 through an event called Dare 2 Share LIVE, tens of thousands of teenagers will be inspired and unleashed in their communities to pray for their cities, serve the underprivileged in their communities, and share the good news of Jesus in their circles of influence. This catalytic event, comprised of multi-denominational, multi- ethnic churches, will be a unifying rally call to churches across nation at a very polarizing time.

Between the pandemic, protests, and political unrest, teenage depression, anxiety and suicide are at an all-time high. I believe we must do something radical to change the spiritual trajectory of this current generation of teenagers. Only the good news of Jesus can set them free from all they’re going through! That’s what Dare 2 Share LIVE is all about. It’s about unifying a generation with the hope of Jesus and then mobilizing them to reach their peers until every teen everywhere has every last chance to put their faith in Jesus. The answer to what ails our country is found in Jesus and Jesus alone.

On October 10th, 2020 thousands upon thousands of teenagers will rally together in hundreds of churches across the nation to bring peace, unity and hope. Through powerful worship, inspirational talks, hands-on training, and cutting-edge technology, teenagers will be unleashed to serve the poor and reach their peers in their local communities. Now more than ever with violence, distancing, isolation, and depression rampant, students are stepping out with the message of life, serving and bringing the gospel to make a difference because the gospel changes everything.

Utilizing technology that students are accustomed to, the event is structured to train teens to relationally share Christ, and then empower them to reach out to both their local communities and their social networks. Dare 2 Share President Debbie Bresina shares, This is the largest youth population in history. By leveraging technology, these young people have the opportunity to ignite a significant movement of gospel conversations in one day.

At last year's event, almost 8,000 teenagers attended at 128 sites. This year, on October 10, Dare 2 Share LIVE will be broadcast from the flagship site in Denver, Colorado and is on track to be streamed to hundreds of churches nationwide. Churches have the option to have their own live worship band and emcee trainer in addition to receiving the feed from Denver with prominent speakers and artists such as Gabrielle Odom, Vertical Worship, Zane Black Jerrod Gunter, The Skit Guys and yours truly. 

In this one-day event, Dare 2 Share LIVE is seeking to engage hundreds of churches across the nation to generate tens of thousands of gospel conversations in one day. The results could change a nation from the inside out. The results could bring deep unity where there has been deep division, true justice where there has been real injustice and lasting hope where there has been lasting hopelessness.

The 3 Big Benefits of online church VS attending church in person

Our family normally attends Red Rocks Church here in the great state of Colorado. But, for the last few months, "attending" has been "logging in" and watching the church services online.

While there are some churches in our state that have started to meet in person again (with limited numbers), our church has chosen to continue to meet online for awhile longer. After all, online viewership is through the roof!

Of course, there's nothing like meeting together as a church family. From fellowship in the lobby to worship in the sanctuary to going out for lunch afterwards to gathering together during the week for small group, there's something about the in-room experience that can never be truly and fully duplicated online.

But, instead of whining about what we miss attending in-person church services, the Stier family has chosen to play the advantages of experiencing church online.

Here are three Big Benefits of attending church online:

Dear Parents of Teenagers, Here are 5 reasons you should keep your teens involved in youth group...

Dear Parents of Teenagers,

Thanks for all you do to invest in the life of your teenager(s). You probably feel like an uber driver (ready to pick them up/drop them off when they call), coach (helping them perfect their sport), tutor (working with them on homework), guidance counsellor (preparing them for the future) and, sometimes, a jockey (pushing them to cross the finish line...without a whip of course!)...all wrapped up in one!

That's why, with all the insane busyness of parenting a teen, it's easy to let youth group attendance slide off the grid. It's tempting to think, "My kid's just too busy for a night of hanging out with other teenagers, playing some goofy games and hearing another Bible lesson."

The Teen's Guide to Social Media & Mobile Devices (and why you should buy it for your teen)

My daughter Kailey just turned 13 on Sunday…and I just agreed to let her engage in a limited form of social media for the first time. 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.

How I put together a Rite of Passage event for my son

I know there are entire ministries dedicated to doing Rite of Passage events for boys turning to men. Although I'm not personally familiar with any of the ministries (and therefore can't recommend one specifically) I did attend one for a friend's son about a decade ago or so. I remember

Hesitations and aspirations of the father of a middle schooler

I'm now officially the father of a middle schooler. Just an hour ago I dropped my son off at school and watched him not be able to open his first school locker. As I watched him fumble with the dial (along with other 12 year olds around him) I couldn't

"You lied to me!"...A Christmas Confession

"It was the week before Christmas and all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring except for me and my spouse."

Why were we stirring? Because I had just told my eight year old daughter the truth about Santa. The results were dramatic, traumatic and tear-filled.

Now,

Make your kids go!

I love this video from McLean Bible Church in Virginia. They used it in the main church services to challenge parents to "make their kids go" to Beach Week, their annual student camp.

Tommy Lippard (a friend and champion for THE Cause) and his daughter, Kristy, talk about how he

Dear Miley Cyrus,

I hope this letter finds you well. Although I don't know you personally I do feel that I do know you from a distance, or at least your alter ego, Hannah Montana. Over the years I've watched you grow up to become the beautiful young lady that you are. God
