Countdown to revival

Are you ready?

There are 1 billion teenagers in the world. If you were to place these teens in a single-file line chest to back, heel to toe, that line would stretch around the world 7.5 times.

That’s a lot of teenagers! It’s the largest generation of young people in the history of the world.

Sadly, most of these young people do not know Jesus. That means they’re steadily shuffling toward a Christless eternity in Hell. But we can stem that tide! Jude 23 compels us to “snatch others from the fire and save them …”

Who will snatch these teenagers from the fire? Who will risk everything to reach every last one of them? Who will dare to share the Gospel with them?

I believe the best way to reach a teenager is through another teenager! That’s why so many successful companies use young social-media influencers to reach Gen Z with their products.

What’s true of marketing widgets to the next generation is true of sharing the Gospel. Teenagers are more open to hearing the Gospel from their peers than from random adults.

The power of teens

When a Christian teenager is effectively equipped to compassionately, courageously, and clearly engage their friends in Gospel conversations, there’s no limit to the spiritual impact they can make. That’s why throughout history God has used teenagers to lead spiritual awakenings. Teenagers come to Christ faster and can spread the Gospel farther than the average adult.

Add to this their potential reach on social media, and now you’re talking massive reach. Let me put it this way: One 15-year-old who posts a viral Gospel video on TikTok could reach more people with the Gospel than the late Billy Graham could in 15 sold-out stadium events!

That’s why I’m so excited about an upcoming event that could trigger a global movement led by teenagers. It could be a countdown to revival!

A global movement

On November 11, teenagers from all around the world will be reaching other teens with the Gospel during an unprecedented day of global youth evangelism. Teens will be inspired, equipped, and unleashed to reach friends and strangers alike with the hope of Jesus Christ.

Dare 2 Share LIVE is a one-of-a-kind global event where teenagers will hear powerful challenges from phenomenal youth speakers, be inspired by a powerful drama that will break their hearts for their unreached friends who are headed to Hell and be equipped to share the Gospel of Jesus with them with clarity and confidence.

Then these teenagers will be sent into their online spheres of influence and into their actual communities to share the Gospel with their lives and their lips.

And they won’t be alone in this quest. They’ll be joining teenagers from around the world on this day of global youth evangelism. As I write this, there are 1,900-plus sites, that could represent tens of thousands of teenagers getting inspired, equipped, and unleashed in 69 countries!

Join in today!

When teens return from their outreaches, they’ll share their stories of sharing the Gospel, as well as hear stories from around the world, through the social media channel on the Life in 6 Words app they’ll have downloaded in preparation for the event. Through the app, they’ll also be able to view a map that lights up whenever a teenager shares the Gospel, anywhere in the world. I believe the entire map will light up on November 11 from all the Gospel conversations happening around the world that day!

It’s not too late to sign your youth group up. Go to, and register today. If you know youth groups that prefer to speak Spanish, they can go here to sign up. Once you sign up, you’ll have access to the Dare 2 Share LIVE portal, which will provide all the resources and guidance you need to participate.

Believe it or not, this high-quality, well-produced, super-interactive event is absolutely free, made possible by the generous donors of Dare 2 Share! Our donors don’t want to see even one youth group miss out on this event because they can’t afford it.

So, we urge you to register today. You can simply get a small group of teenagers together and tell them, “Let’s join this global movement on November 11!” After all, teenagers are looking for a worthy cause to champion, and this is the worthiest cause of all: to go and make disciples of all nations.

Are you ready for revival? Count it down with us.

Pray with us. Join us. Let’s do this!
