Making an LTC Believer Out of a D2S Conference Fan



Carrie Evans, a youth leader from Westminster, Colorado, decided to give Lead THE Cause a chance one summer. After seeing how LTC changed her students and gave them a passion for the gospel, she’s never looked back. Here’s her story in her own words:

I have attended D2S conferences for over 12 years because I love the vision they have to reach, grow and disciple students through evangelism, but to be honest it was really frustrating to see them get all fired up at the conference and then have it fade away.


Several friends urged me to try Lead the Cause, but I remember thinking, “If the conferences don’t ‘work’ long term, why would I invest so much more time and money into it?” Besides, we had seen some great results from our summer mission trips and I just didn’t think I could afford the time or money to do both the mission trip and LTC, so I didn’t go the first few years.


Last summer, I finally decided I’d give it a try. I was, and still am, blown away by the difference in our students. It was like everything I could tell they were trying to do at the conference finally came to life in our students at LTC. The extra time in prayer and study and the creative methods used at LTC, along with the synergy and fellowship of being around other students on the same mission, spurred them to really change their heart, learn the techniques, and give them a vision for continuing to make disciples who make disciples.


LTC radically changed myself, our students, and everything we do in our youth ministry.
