(USA)–Elsewhere, many young people are exercising their faith on short-term mission trips. Others are studying what they believe through training conferences. Dare 2 Share’s Greg Stier says they’ve taken the best of both worlds and fused them together to teach the teenagers how to lead by example. “During our ‘Last Chance Tour’, which is an evangelism training conference, we’re going door-to-door collecting canned goods for rescue missions. In addition to that, we’re using that as an opportunity to introduce people to the Lord, and taking prayer requests; we’re training students to do that, and we’ve just received phenomenal results so far.” Stier says they are partnering with local rescue missions in six other metropolitan areas. He explains how this idea came about. “At our conferences, when we train students how to share their faith, a lot of times, teenagers go out and ‘cold call’ door to door. A lot of students receive slammed doors in their faces. We started thinking ‘how can we minister to the physical as well as the spiritual needs of a particular community?’
