Lead THE Cause 2022: Worthy Students Changing the World



Every year at Lead THE Cause, our weeklong summer camp alternative, we see teens actively learning and growing in their faith. God is at work in their lives, and through them lives are being saved.

So this year, when hundreds of students shared the Gospel thousands of times over the course of a week, we can only give Him praise.

During the two weeklong events hosted at Colorado Christian University in summer 2022, we saw:

  • 748 total students and youth leaders attended
  • 3,750 total Gospel conversations
  • 110 total decisions for Christ made

Give praise to God with us for the boldness these students showed in their faith. These numbers would not be possible without Him guiding us and instructing us on how and where to move.

At Lead THE Cause 2022, teens learned they are worthy

Throughout the course of a week, students learned to pray, care for those around them, and share the Gospel with the world. They studied Luke 3:21-22 and learned what it means to be WORTHY in the eyes of God. This message resonated deeply in the hearts of teens, who are surrounded daily by the chaos and confusion of the world.

In powerful messages, speakers Greg Stier, Zane Black and Jerrod Gunter revealed to students that worthiness flows from our:


“When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: ‘You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.’ Luke 3:21-22

In the moment of His baptism, Jesus was confirmed in His identity as God’s son, commissioned in His purpose as the savior of the world, and strengthened in His place in the Trinity with the touch of the Holy Spirit and the message of the Father.

In the same way, as believers, we can be assured of our identity, belonging and purpose. Although we’re not members of the Trinity, we’re invited to be part the absolute love of the Godhead! So, when we go forth to share the news of Jesus, we know we are fulfilling the command Jesus gave to us, and we can be bold in our purpose, knowing we are worthy of the task, for we are chosen for it.

What students and leaders are saying about Lead THE Cause 2022

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out what youth leaders and students are saying about their experience at Lead THE Cause 2022:

“What a week! Going into this mission trip I didn’t have a clue of how much it would end up meaning to me. Learning how to pray, care, share, and dare myself, I grew a lot in my faith. I am so grateful to have done it alongside some amazing people.”

“We were all challenged to start Gospel Conversations. This group set a goal of 1,000 gospel conversations this year!!! Wow – with God’s help they WILL do it.”

“Lead THE Cause 22 was amazing! These high school leaders were equipped and sent to pray with boldness, care with genuineness, and share with the life changing truth of the gospel. God is at work in this generation and I saw it up close. Don’t believe the lies that this generation is hopeless. God is on the move.”

“thanks for the best week ever!”

Lead THE Cause 2022 was incredible! We can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
