Ben Phillips

Ben Phillips has served in local-church youth and young adult ministry over the past 15 years, applying Gospel Advancing values to see great fruit produced to the glory of God. Speaking at camps, retreats, services, and trainings for students and leaders across several states, Ben has had the privilege of seeing many come to Christ and engage in His mission to “seek and save the lost.” His Dare 2 Share staff role is to be a “trainer of trainers,” equipping and mobilizing leaders to infuse their ministries with the same Gospel Advancing values as the Church in Acts. He would love to help you and your ministry dive deeper into the mission and call of Jesus, as you work to reach every teen in your community with the Gospel! Ben, and his wife, JaNae, reside in Nebraska with their two kids, Micah and Emery.  

Tony Kohler, International Ministry Specialist at Dare 2 Share
Tony Kohler

Tony grew up going to Dare 2 Share conferences as a youth, and from an early age he knew he wanted to be involved in both youth ministry and missions. He’s spent most of his adulthood either in local-church ministry or doing missions full-time overseas, sharing the Gospel with those who haven’t yet had the opportunity to respond. Tony has a passion to see people put their trust in Jesus and to see them live out their faith in their daily lives, and he draws from his humor and life experiences to help them do so.  

Gustavo Gonzalez English/Spanish

After growing up with cultural Christianity, Gustavo put his faith in Christ at age 23, while completing his master’s degree in child and adolescent psychopathology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain. Since then, he’s had a passion to share his faith and teach others to do the same. Besides being a youth leader for almost a decade now, Gustavo has also had the opportunity to train thousands of teenagers throughout the years. Currently he’s the Spanish ministry specialist for Dare 2 Share Ministries and lives in Puerto Rico with his wife, Sasha, and their two children, Dylan and Nailah May.
