Founded in 1991, Dare 2 Share Ministries exists to Energize the Church to Mobilize Youth to Gospelize their world! Dare 2 Share is committed to affecting positive change in the increasingly troubled generation of teens. With more than 25 years of experience training students and youth leaders on how to share their faith, Dare 2 Share's vision is to see every teen everywhere to hear the Gospel from a friend. Dare 2 Share is convinced that the answer to this crisis in Christianity lies in an aggressive initiative to transform youth ministry from reactive and entertainment-based to Great Commission-driven and Scripture-based. For this purpose, Dare 2 Share created a movement of Gospel Advancing Ministry. It is a ministry that relentlessly pursues the mission of Jesus by relationally multiplying disciples resulting in radical gospel transformation.
