What is Dare 2 Share LIVE?

Teens desperately need the hope of Christ, and their peers are the best possible messengers of that hope. Imagine what could happen in our communities if every teen, everywhere, heard the Gospel from a friend! Through Dare 2 Share LIVE, youth ministries around the world are uniting to activate young people to reach their world with the message of Jesus.

This on-demand video training event you can do in your own community ignites your teens’ hearts for the lost, equips them with a clear Gospel message, and activates them to step out to serve and share. 

Why it Works

Evangelism accelerates the discipleship process like nothing else does! When students share the Gospel, especially with their peers, they ask questions, pray deeply and learn to depend on the Holy Spirit. Plus, they get to participate in the Cause of Christ, making disciples who make disciples. Dare 2 Share LIVE is a global movement with local impact as communities are impacted by the Gospel and teens are transformed as they share.

Together with the Students and Young Adults we learned how to share God's love with people! Then we went out to evangelize in the streets and had an incredible time. 

Youth Leader

Dare 2 Share Live was incredible! 11 students indicated that they trusted Christ and students shared the Gospel 135 times during our outreach time! God is working and may he continue to show his love!

After years of cheap thrills and temporary highs, Zane experienced a radical encounter with Jesus that changed him forever. Now, his passion is to help young people encounter Jesus for themselves and go “all in” for the gospel. Zane has spoken at numerous Dare 2 Share events and the 2019 Winter Jam tour, written books, served with Torchbearers International, and leads a ministry called Lovin Life.
