How appropriate, the weekend after what may amount to one of the most significant elections in American history we are kicking off the Dare 2 Share Invincible tour this weekend at The Patriot Center in/by/close to our nation’s capitol. It should be a flag waving, American style party.
How did Obama win the election? He harnessed an army of young people with the promise of change, organized them for action and then unleashed them to make a difference…and they did. Many pollsters agree that it was the young that won this election for Obama.
How will we win America to Jesus? The same way! We, by God’s grace, are going to harness an even younger generation (teenagers, not twentysomethings) for change. This transformation will not be political but spiritual, the kind of change that matters most. Our prayer is that through the Invincible tour God will raise up over 50,000 teen evangelists who will dive into significant spritual conversations (aka “shreddin’ the gnar) with five friends right away, and all of their friends after that.
The apostle Paul wrote “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes….” True change, lasting change, doesn’t come through campaign promises or political victories. It comes through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. It comes through His resurrection from the dead. It comes through spreading that message through the next generation to their generation.
Pray for us this weekend! Pray that God does something BIG!!!!
