2020 annual report
In 2020, in addition to god's protection and provision, he also gave us strength and courage to pivot!
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Energizing the Church to mobilize youth to Gospelize their world.
Every teen, everywhere, hearing the Gospel from a friend.
gospel advancing leader
A Gospel Advancing Leader shares the Gospel personally and mobilizes teenagers to do the same.
130,000 Gospel Advancing Leaders worldwide by 2025.
Our first pivot was to add a new audio feature to our faith-sharing mobile app called Life in 6 Words.
We wanted users to be able to share the Gospel and their story even if they were isolated in quarantine.
In a second pivot, we developed a new curriculum series for youth leaders entitled, “You Can’t Quarantine the Gospel.”
The series helped thousands of leaders encourage and equip their teens with a message of hope in spite of their circumstances.
Gospel Advancing Council members spent three days of intense prayer, discussion and collaboration to refine strategies to reach the vision of every teen everywhere hearing the Gospel from a friend.
We also typically use our summer events to train international leaders. So, with the in-person events cancelled, we needed to find an innovative way to equip these indigenous leaders as well. That led to the development of a comprehensive digital learning course.
Lead THE Cause events held
internationally by partners
Pivot number three was a big one. We had to figure out what to do about our week-long summer camps called Lead THE Cause.
We are so thankful that we made the decision to pivot completely to virtual by mid-April! Making the decision in April gave us the time we needed to focus on programming a high-quality experience for every participant, no matter what COVID restriction they were experiencing in their state.
Due to the pandemic, physical locations had to be shut down and our first ever virtual LTC was held.
D2S live 2020
In October, we had our fourth annual multi-site simulcast called Dare 2 Share LIVE. This is a one-day teen outreach event that is held simultaneously from coast-to-coast. In hindsight, we see how God used Dare 2 Share LIVE over the last 3 years to prepare us for 2020. Of course, we pivoted a bit in 2020 for this event too… But wow, how God provided!
in the midst of the pandemic, we chose to pray and pivot,
knowing that God would provide and protect
