Your Top 5 Worries Solved Planning for Dare 2 Share LIVE this Year



This has been a tough year for planning just about anything. Youth leaders have had to get creative with how they reach students and how they run everything; weekly gatherings, church services, small groups, and outreach projects.

When you’re looking at an event for your youth group, especially one that’s unfamiliar, there is a lot to consider, and a lot that can get in your way.

Let’s walk through some of the common concerns that youth leaders are encountering while preparing for Dare 2 Share LIVE this year and see if we can find solutions so that every teen everywhere hears the gospel from a friend!

I can’t plan an event right now!

We hear you. We know that churches are in varying stages of gathering together, and some are struggling to even connect with their students regularly. This is an event that doesn’t require much heavy lifting on your part, you can customize for your unique context and you’ll get individual support to help make it a success! Check out the schedule for the day to see what’s involved or get in touch with us to work through challenges.

What if my students don’t want to sit in front of a screen?

We understand. This a unique year and many students are online learning, so spending another day watching a screen might not seem appealing. We work hard to make sure the speaking, skits and worship stay fresh and engaging so that students have fun as they learn. Plus, a full 1/3 of the day will be spent reaching out in service and faith sharing (off screen wherever possible)!

My group is nervous about sharing their faith!

Evangelism is intimidating for just about everyone (maybe even Greg Stier!) so it is understandable that your students would have some hesitations. The great thing about Dare 2 Share LIVE is that all of your students are in it together. They are all afraid, then they go for it and see God at work!

Plus, it’s a great way to strengthen your students’ faith. Evangelism triggers fear. Fear triggers prayer. Prayer triggers dependence on Jesus. And dependence accelerates spiritual growth. Win-Win-Win.

Will it even work with COVID-19 restrictions in my area?

The safety and security of your students is a big concern, especially now. Dare 2 Share LIVE is a live-streamed event that your group can join in several different ways:
  • gathered together at your church
  • in smaller groups at separate locations
  • virtually from individual homes.

There are options and flexibility depending on your context and comfort level.

We’ve also modified our Outreach Experience recommendations to account for social distancing guidelines and virtual options. Grab this download for more information on the types of activities you could plan for the afternoon outreach.

Will Dare 2 Share LIVE be worth it?

We think so! We’ve seen amazing change happen in groups who step out and share their faith! When students share the hope of the gospel, they receive it too.

Plus, risk taking through evangelism helps teenagers learn deeper and faster. Your teenagers will master what they believe as they articulate it to their peers.

Here’s what happened when one of Luke’s students went for it and shared the gospel with a friend –
One of my students shared Jesus with a friend. His life was a mess 2 months ago but his life is changed completely now and he is so excited to reach out to his friends now who don’t know Jesus. This student didn’t come to youth group & probably never would… but met Jesus because Dare 2 Share LIVE helped me send my students OUT!

Your teens can reach those unreachable students when they are inspired and equipped to share the gospel with love and compassion.
