Today I leave to go to Chicago where we will do our last conference of the Survive Tour. So far it has been a powerful run. God has done and continues to do some amazing things in and through the tens of thousands of teenagers who have been trained and equipped through the Dare 2 Share conferences.
Pray for this last event to be powerful and effective. My prayer is that God’s Spirit moves in hearts in such a way that these teenagers are never the same. Also pray for the youth leaders to put into practice the Deep and Wide Youth Ministry model in the context of their youth group. The last thing I want these equipping weekends to be is a one weekend hip, hip, hooray holy huddle. Youth leaders need to implement this long term model so that they can see ongoing growth (in depth of spirituality and new conversion growth) in the context of their youth ministries.
Also, I’m bringing Jeremy my seven year old son (of “Teeter Totter Theology” fame) with me on this trip. Pray that we have some great daddy/son time this weekend in the windy city. I love that little boy.
