Our Core Values

Pray Fiercely

Mark 11:22-24

“Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”

Be gritty

Acts 20:24

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”

Care Deeply

Romans 12:10

“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.”

Work it out

1 Corinthians 1:10

“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”

Bring your best

Colossians 3:23-24

“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.”

OUR HISTORY

Our first year as a ministry

During our first year as a ministry, Dare 2 Share absorbed a building, computers and equipment when another non-profit closed down, giving us a base of operations and resources to begin doing ministry more effectively.

1991

First evangelism training conferences

In 1992, we held our first evangelism training conferences. The first event had 100 students in an auditorium that seated 2100. The second training conference had 75 attendees, the third, just 11.

1992

No budgets, creativity and prayer

Traveling for those first no-budget years, doing training conferences with life-long friends took some imagination. Our production resources were mostly prayer, creativity, a few portable speakers, a foot locker full of props and duct tape.

1993

Debbie Bresina comes on staff

Debbie Bresina came on as a volunteer in 1993 and started asking some much needed questions. In 1995, she came on as Dare 2 Share’s first full-time employee.

1994

Our first out of state conferences

We did our first out of state conferences in 1995-1996 in Wheatland, Wyoming, Detroit, Michigan, and Houston Texas.

1995

Name officially changed to “Dare 2 Share”

After realizing that “Warriors for Christ” was a name that carried some violent connotations we officially changed the name to Dare 2 Share.

1996

Separate from Tandem Ministries

In 1997, Dare 2 Share officially became its own entity, separating amicably from Tandem Ministries. Greg Stier became the new President of Dare 2 Share.

1997

Given a new truck to fit conference gear

We were gifted a new 1998 Brooks and Dunn edition Volvo tractor-trailer truck in 1997! We could fit all of our sound and lighting gear in the cab.

1997

First D2S event in St. Louis, MO

In the fall of 1997, we did our first Dare 2 Share event in St. Louis, MO. We had 247 in attendance and a huge stage presence, complete with major sounds, lights and special effects!

1997

Coordinate outreach for DC/LA

In summer of 1997, we coordinated the evangelism outreach experience for Youth for Christ’s DC/LA Evangelism Super Conference. It was a privilege to share the Gospel with thousands in the streets of DC and LA.

1997

Conference breaks 1000 in attendance

In the spring of 1999, we broke 1,000 in attendance for the first time at our Atlanta Conference!

1999

Columbine High School massacre

On April 20th, 1999 the Columbine High School massacre took place just outside of Denver. After much prayer and consulting, Greg Stier resigned from the church that he was pastoring to do Dare 2 Share full-time.

1999

Danny Oertli begins traveling with D2S

Starting in 1999, we had the privilege to travel with Danny Oertli for several years. His worship excellence and life story had a huge impact on me and thousands of teenagers.

1999

Rolly Richert and Holly Ingels join team

Rolly Richert and Holly Ingels began traveling with us and took Dare 2 Share conferences to the next level. Rolly went to be with the Lord a few years ago, but Holly is still helping us produce our events.

2001

Youth Ministry book “Outbreak” published

Greg wrote his first book, Outbreak… Creating a Contagious Youth Ministry, in 2002 with Moody Publishing. This was his first real entry into training youth leaders to lead the way when it came to evangelism.

2002

Partner with BGEA for week-long training

In the summer of 2002, we partnered with Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to train 240 teenagers and youth leaders. This gave us confidence that we had enough content to train teenagers for a week.

2002

Train 172K men at Promise Keepers events

In 2003, we were able to train over 172,000 men to share their faith across the nation through the Promise Keepers events held from coast to coast.

2003

Receive first and only million-dollar gift

In 2004, we received our first (and only) million-dollar gift. A businessman and ministry partner called Greg out of the blue and gave him the heart-stopping, soul-shaking, Kingdom advancing news while he was on his way to the airport.

2004

Meet Zane Black through filming reality series

The evangelism-centered “reality series” Gospel Journey and Gospel Journey Maui video curriculums reached tens of thousands of teenagers with the gospel and introduced us to Zane Black.

2006

Period of growth, train 50,000 teens in year

From 2002-2007, Dare 2 Share experienced massive growth and finally broke 9,000 in attendance at our St. Louis conference! At our largest, we did 11 events and trained almost 50,000 teenagers in one school year.

2007

Learn power of prayer through recession

During the Great Recession of 2008, we learned the power of prayer as we experienced a major donor drop-off and almost didn’t make it as a ministry. God used this recession as a progression to our faith and to teach us to lead the way on our knees.

2008

First full week Lead THE Cause training

In 2012, Dare 2 Share did our first full-week Lead THE Cause training at Colorado Christian University. Here, we trained students and leaders to cultivate and spread a gospel movement.

2012

Shift focus to Gospel Advancing Ministries

In 2013, we commissioned a research project on youth ministry evangelism, discovering that our conferences were very effective in inspiring teenagers to evangelize, but they were not as effective in the long-term results. We began shifting our focus to Gospel Advancing Ministries.

2013

Debbie Bresina becomes President of D2S

We headed to Israel in 2015 with 150 ministry leaders with the Global Youth Initiative and Sonlife to walk where Jesus walked and conspire with key country leaders. Here, God put it in Greg Stier's heart to begin to really “go global” and he put it on Debbie Bresina’s heart to accept the position of President.

2015

Revise mission to open global impact

In August of 2016, our Board of Directors voted to say “YES” to a new mission statement that would open up our ministry to make a global impact, “Energizing the Church to Mobilize youth to Gospelize their world!”

2016

D2S Conferences come to an end, and Dare 2 Share LIVE launches

Traditional conferences as we knew them come to a close, but our national, live simulcast event launches nationwide with over 500 churches participating. 

2017

Lead THE Cause expanded to 5 cities

Lead THE Cause summer events trained hundreds of students in 5 different cities throughout the U.S.

2018

The Life in 6 Words app launched in October

The Life in 6 Words got a major upgrade with even more effective Gospel-sharing tools and language capabilities.

2019

COVID19 strikes and forces the ministry to pivot

The Audio Stories module for the Life in 6 Words app is developed which allows teens to have virtual Gospel conversations during sheltering-in-place

Lead THE Cause goes virtual enabling hundreds of more students to participate online.

The Life in 6 Words app was translated into 8 languages extending the reach of the app to potentially hundreds of millions of teens globally

2020
