Greg Stier, founder of of Dare 2 Share Ministries (D2S), says the COVID-19 pandemic, political unrest, lockdowns, riots, and a nation divided have snowballed together into a situation that is killing teens.

"According to the director of the CDC, we have lost more teenagers to suicide and overdose in the last six months than we have to COVID-19," Stier relays. "I think now's the time for Christian teens to reach out their peers with the gospel of Jesus Christ."

On October 10th, Dare 2 Share Live will be streamed to hundreds of churches from Alaska to Puerto Rico to minister to Christian teens and to encourage them to reach out to their friends and classmates with "the one thing that can truly change everything."

"We're going to be mobilizing teens in one day on October 10th—10/10/2020—to share Christ with all of their friends and all of their peers," Stier explains. "I believe we can see that statistic turn around."

The only way to "recapture the hearts of Generation Z," he says, is with the good news of Jesus Christ.
