Mission

Energizing the Church to Mobilize Youth to Gospelize their World!

Notes from the nonprofit

Dare 2 Share has become the go-to teen evangelism training resource for youth leaders in the United States who want to accelerate spiritual growth in the lives of their teens by mobilizing them for peer-to-peer evangelism. From free youth leader training events and webinars to quality small group curriculum to highly produced regional student conferences, our goal is to create a captivating experience that leads to a lifestyle of evangelism - for the youth leader as well as their students.

We at Dare 2 Share believe that to truly make teens disciples of Christ, we must raise the bar spiritually, calling them to make a difference by taking Jesus Christ and the Great Commission seriously. According to Philemon 6, when we are actively sharing our faith, we know by personal experience every good thing we have in Christ Jesus. In other words, when students begin to share their faith, they begin to own their faith, instead of borrowing it from their parents and pastors. The driving concept behind this movement is a calling, much like the calling Jesus gave to his disciples...a dare to share.

From studying the Biblical book of Acts, Dare 2 Share has crafted a powerful strategy that could turn the tide of youth ministry in America and capture the hearts of a large percentage of the millennial generation. This is the powerful paradigm for change at Dare 2 Share Ministries-to introduce this generation to Jesus Christ and unleash them to spread the message to others.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Teenagers are struggling with anxiety, depression and hopelessness in ways they've never experienced before, in large part due to the weight of the corona virus pandemic. That said, Christian teens are hungry for purpose and have a desire to reach their friends with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but often don't know how to start the conversation or how to clearly articulate the Gospel.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

At Dare 2 Share, we want to mobilize youth leaders to inspire and equip students to share the Gospel so that every teen, everywhere, hears the Gospel from a friend. We are committed to training and equipping youth leaders to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their communities by empowering their students to lead the way. We define gospel-advancing ministries as churches who experience 20% or more new conversion growth annually in their youth groups, show evidence of discipleship multiplication, have influence within and beyond the local church, and show strategic initiative in their approach to advance the Gospel message throughout their networks. The inspiration, training, and resources we provide help youth leaders excel in these areas.

Our strategies include:
Gospel Advancing Strategies and Resources
Kingdom Collaboration
Catalytic Events


1. An intercession strategy that mobilizes champions to support THE Cause in ongoing prayer - Nothing of eternal significance can be accomplished apart form the power of prayer. By recruiting an unparalleled prayer force Dare 2 Share plans on unleashing the power of intercessory prayer to pave the way for a true, deep and lasting gospel-advancing movement.

2. An integration strategy that includes multiple evangelism tools and training resources - By integrating proven resources into youth ministry programming Dare 2 Share is seeking to strengthen the outreach arm of the average youth ministry exponentially. From individual youth groups to entire denominations to para-church organizations, Dare 2 Share will recruit any willing body of believers to use the Dare 2 Share tools and philosophy.

3. A saturation strategy that inspires and equips youth leaders and teenagers to reach their communities and campuses for Christ - Using catalytic student events Dare 2 Share will inspire and equip a generation with the mission, message and methods of relationally advancing the Gospel. These high powered events will keep the momentum of the movement high as well as identify future leaders who can be trained to lead the cause in their own regions on a grass-roots level. Dare 2 Share conferences se the standard for high quality, biblical and practical evangelism training events in the United States.

4. A multiplication strategy that provides deeper level training for those who desire to accelerate the vision - Youth leaders and students who desire to advance the mission of reaching teenagers regionally are invited to participate in Lead THE Cause. These week-long evangelism leadership trainings prepare youth leaders and their high-will/raw-skill teenagers to engage every teenager in their community in a gospel conversation.

Our capabilities for meeting this goal align with our annual priorities which includes:
1. A partnership with Sonlife Ministries to assume operational and strategic leadership of our discipleship program, Lead THE Cause: A Disciple-making Movement
2. A training program that is designed to recruit, train and disciple certified trainers who can be sent out to motivate and equip those seeking a gospel advancing ministry
3. A redesign of our student evangelism training conference model to provide a high quality experience in two cities and a virtual event.
3. Resource integration strategies that increase our gloss sales revenue from 10% to 20% over prior year

We are currently working through the co-marketing of our strategic partnership with Sonlife and the development of a strong value proposition that best serves our combined constituents.

Until recently, the emphasis has been primarily on the "multiplication" strategic component and less on the "integration" component even with more pressure to produce revenue through resources. Having missed some of our target milestones for our "integration" strategy, we recognize more attention and resources must be given to help realize our objectives in this area.

Lastly, we have undertaken a rebranding strategy and have developed a new logo and also enhanced our LI6W App with foreign languages (Arabic, Chinese/Mandarin, Czech, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish; added animation, audio story feature, event feature and conversation starter.
