If there’s any event that will jumpstart your students’ passion for Christ and reaching the lost, Dare 2 Share LIVE (LIVE) is it. It’s a powerful day where teens learn both how to evangelize and why it’s eternally important to share the gospel with others.
The reality, though, is that Dare 2 Share LIVE is just one day, and it shouldn’t be the only encounter your students have with gospel training! For lasting transformation to happen in your students’ hearts, evangelism must be prioritized and normalized every week in your ministry. To get started on how you can do this, look no further than the pre-event training material already included in your Dare 2 Share LIVE Church Kit.
What’s in the Pre-Event Training Material?
There are eighteen weeks’ worth of both pre– and post-event training material inside the Church Kit. If you use these resources, Dare 2 Share LIVE will become a powerful reinforcement of what you’re already teaching your students, rather than just one day of training and outreach that can quickly be forgotten.
Here’s what’s in the pre-event training material:
The Life in 6 Words Curriculum
The seven-week “Life in 6 Words” curriculum is based on Dare 2 Share’s viral video of the same name featuring spoken word artist Propaganda. Watch it below:
The “Life in 6 Words” curriculum offers a theological deep dive into each letter of the GOSPEL. With seven full lessons and videos featuring Greg Stier and Propaganda, along with participant guides for students and leaders, it’s a great tool to teach students solid theology on every aspect of the gospel message.
And, by taking your group through this curriculum before LIVE, you’ll help your students enter the outreach experience with confidence in their ability to articulate the gospel. “Life in 6 Words” is Dare 2 Share’s best-selling curriculum, and it’s a huge deal that it’s coming to you in your Church Kit at no extra cost!
Gospelize Your Youth Ministry by Greg Stier
Gospelize Your Youth Ministry by Dare 2 Share founder Greg Stier is a game-changing, if not life-changing, treasure for youth leaders everywhere. In Gospelize, Greg walks through the 7 Values of a Gospel Advancing Ministry found in the book of Acts and how to apply them to your own ministry context. If you’re serious about wanting your youth ministry to be a place where students are on fire to reach their friends for Christ, then reading Gospelize with a highlighter in hand is the perfect place to start.
“The Conversation that Matters Most” Youth Group Lessons
This video lesson helps teenagers understand the why behind sharing the gospel. As faith-sharing becomes increasingly frowned upon in our “live-and-let-live” culture, it’s important that students know the desperate need for them to have the conversation that matters most with their lost friends. Go through this lesson one night at youth group before LIVE to get students thinking about the urgency of the Great Commission.
There are a few more resources in your Church Kit to help you utilize Dare 2 Share LIVE for all it’s worth.
