gospel momentum

New opportunities abounded, and we saw a dramatic increase in momentum as God opened up new avenues, introduced us to more like-minded ministry leaders and groups, and continued to show our events and resources favor as more youth leaders and students engaged with them.

Dare 2 Share LIVE - a global day of youth evangelism

Dare 2 Share LIVE, our annual day of evangelism training and outreach, was broadcast into churches across 48 states and 5 countries, mobilizing thousands of students to start 5,422 Gospel conversations with their friends and neighbors.

Our very first event entirely in Spanish, Dare 2 Share LIVE Español, broadcast on September 17. Churches from 18 Spanish-speaking countries participated and their students engaged 2,124 others with the Gospel.

The Lead THE Cause events took 800 students and youth leaders on a deep dive into evangelism and outreach with over 3,500 Gospel conversations happening over the two weeks.

Our first ever Gospel Advancing Summit saw 93 leaders from 21 states come together in the mountains of Colorado to learn to advance the Gospel together.


All of our digital training and resources are free so that any group can have the tools needed for a Gospel Advancing ministry.

New Leaders

We provided training and resources for 31,650 NEW youth ministry leaders who will impact hundreds of thousands of students.

Global Opportunities

Last Fall, the team trained over 300 leaders and 3 thousand teenagers in South Africa, Kenya, and Egypt, paving the way to bring a Gospel Advancing Summit to Africa this Spring.

Increased Reach

God provided opportunities through radio and television in 2022, with Greg appearing on the Focus on the Family broadcast, and a sermon he delivered to a church in Egypt that went out to their television audience of over 6 million.

Stories of Impact

It's life changing for sure. You get a whole new perspective on life and you really learn how to be a disciple of God. And you learn how to help others understand this life we have through Christ.


on Lead THE Cause 2022

Every week I have a student come up to me and say, 'Hey, I heard your talk, but then my friend explained it to me further.' Equipping students to have Gospel conversations is by far the most effective way to see teens trust in Jesus.


from the Gospel Advancing Summit 2022

We saw a young and timid girl, Kayla, become bold. She shares with her peers and within the church. We are very grateful. Her transformation has inspired other teens to want to be like her, bold and forward about the Gospel message.
