Creating a Thriving Youth Ministry with Free Resources



At Dare 2 Share, we’re all about training and equipping students AND youth leaders to reach this generation for Christ. We do that in a variety of different ways: events, youth group curriculum, books and lots of FREE STUFF.

FREE STUFF is great for youth leaders on tight budgets, provided it is high quality, engaging stuff. We LOVE youth leaders and deeply appreciate the challenging, sacrificial work you do as you pour into the lives of teenagers. So we strive to provide you with top-notch, engaging, relevant, free resources that will keep you challenged, equipped, fresh and focused.

We have soooo many free resources available, in fact, that it’s easy for some of them to get lost in the shuffle. That’s why I’m launching into a new energize series that explores the best and brightest D2S freebies. Some of these resources will inspire; others will train. Many, you will want to share with your adult volunteers. Others will be a great help in motivating and mobilizing your students for THE Cause of making disciples who make disciples.

Freebie #1: D2S Webinar World

If you’ve never joined in for one of our free, live, D2S webinars for youth leaders, you’ve been missing out on some great times of training, Q & A, youth leader interaction and just plain fun. Our webinars are encouraging, yet challenging, learning times where you get both practical content plus the opportunity to chat online with others who share your passion for Jesus and for ministering to teenagers.

5 Steps of Faith

I first introduced these “5 steps of faith” at our Jump in Feet First youth leader training session at the D2S Follow Tour. This webinar will take that training to the next level. But don’t worry, if you didn’t make it to Jump in Feet First, here’s a quick review of the five steps:

  1. Intercessional Evangelism: Prioritizing intercessory prayer in your life and ministry.
  2. Incarnational Evangelism: Making evangelism a priority in your personal life.
  3. Invitational Evangelism: Building an atmosphere where your teens are inviting their friends out to youth group.
  4. Intentional Evangelism: Equipping your teens to share their faith with friends and strangers alike.
  5. Exponential Evangelism: Preparing your students to make disciples who make disciples and lead THE Cause at their schools.

If you’re interested in some concrete ideas that will help you address these five areas in your life and ministry, check out the full, free Jump in Feet First training notebook  to learn more.

Tap into the Archives

If you’re not able to join us live on April 30th, you can still tap into this resource at a time that’s more convenient for you by accessing our training video archives after the fact. (Give us a week or so to get the latest webinar posted on our archive webpage.) The taped version of the webinar also allows you the chance to re-watch these trainings with your any of your adult volunteers, senior pastor or even your student leadership team who couldn’t make it to the live webinar.

I also invite you to check out some of my past webinars available in the archive.

Your walk with Jesus and your ministry skills should never become static. These free D2S webinars are a great way to keep yourself challenged, stretched, fresh and focused—which is a foundational part of your continual pursuit of excellence as a follower of Christ.

Please know that at Dare 2 Share, we’re here for you. And we want to give you all the tools you need to build a thriving youth ministry.
