Summary

Dare 2 Share Ministries exists to see the Gospel advanced and disciples made among today's youth.

We do this by equipping youth leaders to build Gospel Advancing Ministries. Then, these youth leaders train their teens to share their faith with the lost around them.

We know that evangelism accelerates the discipleship process. If your students are involved in sharing the Gospel, they will grow in their faith faster than any curriculum can take them through.

Statement of faith

God
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is eternally self-existent, sovereign, righteous, compassionate, holy, loving and so much more!

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16,17; Galatians 1:1; Ephesians 4:6; Romans 9:5; Colossians 2:9; John 1:1; Acts 5:3-4; Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 6:3; 1 John 4:8)

God's Son
Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Trinity. He has always been fully God and became fully God and fully human when he was conceived in Mary's womb by the power of the Holy Spirit. He lived the perfect life we could never live and died the horrible death that we deserved. He rose physically from the dead, victorious over sin and Satan. Forty days after his resurrection he ascended physically into the heavens. He is interceding for us at the right hand of God the Father. He will come back to establish his kingdom on the earth and rule and reign forever with those who have put their faith in him.

(Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; I Timothy 3:16; John 1:1,14; Philippians 2:6; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Romans 8:34)

God's Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity who was fully active in the creation of the world and is fully active in the regeneration of those who put their faith in Jesus. He indwells believers at the moment of salvation and is with them continuously until the day of redemption. He empowers believers to live a life full of "joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness gentleness and self-control" (Galatians 5:22,23). The Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to believers that allow them to serve others, and empowers them to clearly and confidently share the gospel with unbelievers.

(Genesis 1:2; John 14:26; Acts 1:8; Acts 5:3,4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-13; 2 Corinthians 3:17,18; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 John 2:20)

God's Word
Scripture was written by men but inspired by God. This means that every word, passage, and chapter of the Holy Scriptures, though penned by humans and retaining the writing style and personality of the human authors, was inspired by God himself. Although many came from varying backgrounds and lived in different places and time periods, each of the Biblical authors was guided by the Holy Spirit as he wrote. God's word is reliable, not only in matters of faith and practice, but on every matter it touches.

(Psalm 19:7-11; Psalm 119; Matthew 5:18; Luke 24:44-46; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12,13; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

Gospel
The Gospel ("good news of Jesus") tells the whole story of creation from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. It is a clear and simple message that has a deep and profound impact on those who receive it by faith. At Dare 2 Share we unpack this story in six simple statements that spell out GOSPEL (the GOSPEL acrostic).

God created us to be with Him. (Genesis 1-2)
Our sins separate us from God. (Genesis 3)
Sins cannot be removed by good deeds. (Genesis 4 - Malachi 4)
Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again. (Matthew - Luke)
Everyone who trusts in him alone has eternal life. (John)
Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever. (Acts - Revelation)

History

In 1991, a young pastor named Greg Stier had a vision to see teens sharing their faith and reaching their world for Christ. From this vision, Dare 2 Share Ministries (D2S) was born.

In 1999, the Columbine High School shooting happened in Littleton, CO, mere minutes from the Dare 2 Share headquarters. This monumental tragedy brought the nation to its knees and triggered a turning point in Greg's career. Following those events, he resigned from a pastorate at a church in Arvada, Colorado to pursue his role at D2S full-time.

Since then, Greg and the ministry of D2S have impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of teens across the country, motivating and equipping them to relationally reach those who don't know Jesus with the Gospel message.

Today, Dare 2 Share is making a global impact for God's kingdom through powerful events that equip teenagers to reach their world with the Gospel. In addition to teen evangelism training events, Dare 2 Share is leading a movement of Gospel Advancing leaders from all over the world, equipping them with tools to advance the Gospel in their ministries.
