3 MISSION Mobilizing teenagers to relationally and relentlessly reach their generation for Christ

4 In a 2011 Barna study, 59% of year olds with a Christian background report that they had or have dropped out of attending church, after going regularly when they were younger. Source: David Kinnaman, You Lost Me (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2011), page 24.

5 “With God, we don’t wanna change the world… we’re gonna change the world!”

6 Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakeable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of society. Science Daily, July 2012

7 VISION Teenagers on every high school and middle school in America who are relationally and relentlessly reaching their generation for Christ and mobilizing other teens to do the same 67,342 middle & high schools

8 According to Dann Spader and Gary Mayes, the average church in America is seeing less than a 3% growth rate from new conversions. [1] However, church growth experts say that churches need to see at least a 10% new conversion growth rate in order to be considered “healthy.” Meanwhile, youth groups who have participated in Dare 2 Share conferences are seeing an average of 18% new conversion growth within their youth ministries!
