At least 9,000 attendees, most of them teenagers, learned about student evangelism and sharing Jesus with their communities through Dare 2 Share’s first live event.
Held Saturday and broadcast at 69 locations, the Dare 2 Share live event sought to encourage Christian youths to spread the Gospel among their friends and classmates.
Dare 2 Share Ministries spokeswoman Tracey Hadden told The Christian Post that she felt the live event went “extremely well,” with thousands being trained for youth ministry and estimates for the total number of attendees still pending.
“The biggest highlight is that we heard of numerous salvations occurring at many of the host sites. We also saw over 7,000 recorded gospel conversations taking place via social media on that day, in addition to the thousands of face-to-face conversations and texts that went out,” said Hadden.
“The technology allowed us to get into areas that we have never had a chance to reach with our trainings in the past. Churches that have desired to come to an evangelism training event now had the opportunity to bring it into their own community.”
A 14-year-old student, whose name was not specified, stated in a Facebook video that the experience was exciting, though she admitted some had fears in sharing Jesus with strangers.
“It’s really about just putting that chance out there for those people, the chance of them being able to get to know Jesus,” the student who joined a Dare 2 Share Live event in Hagerstown, Md., said. “It’s a great experience for those who it’s their first time going out. I know some of us were a little bit scared but we kinda warmed up.”
