We just finished our first Global Summit at Dare 2 Share. It was powerful.
We had 8 key leaders representing 5 countries for the last four days in the beautiful mountains of Colorado strategizing how to reach every teen eveywhere with the hope of Jesus! God revealed to us enough of his divine blueprint for moving forward for us all to feel like it was a huge success!
Stefano (Italy), Don/Ashley (South Africa), Corey (Switzerland), Callum/Jazlyn (Australia) and Debbie/Mark/me (USA) all were super blessed to be a part of it!
I gave every participant of our first Global summit a copy of a poem I wrote a few months ago called “Every teen everywhere.” It expresses our prayer that God raises up a world-wide movement of teen-to-teen Gospel conversations!
Every teen needs the hope
That only Jesus can provide.
They’re wandering in the darkness
And he longs to be their guide.
Like lost sheep in the wilderness
They’re tired and scared and cold.
Waiting for someone to find them,
The Shepherd of their souls.
It’s only Christ and Christ alone
Who can save them from their sin.
Only the message that Jesus died
Can bring new life within.
But who will tell them of his love?
Who will reach them all?
Who will stand up to be counted
And answer God’s high call?
We all answer with a “YES!”
Before him we will bow.
The time is short. The need is great
The question is, “but how?”
Let’s call the church to be the church
Both here and, yes, abroad,
As we unleash a generation
For THE Cause of God.
Let’s energize the Bride of Christ
To mobilize the youth
To Gospelize a generation
By giving them the truth.
One billion teens on this planet
Headed for demise.
Now is the time for action!
Now we must arise!
And when we hear the trumpet sound
We’ll go to be with Christ
We’ll take with us a generation
And leave this world of strife.
When we stand before the Lord
And our race on earth is done.
From teens we’ll hear the “thank you’s”
But from Christ we’ll hear “Well done!”

Pray with us that God continues to use these leaders in powerful ways and unleashes this movement in every country. Let’s reach every teen everywhere with the hope of Jesus!
