Dare2Share has been inspiring teens to evangelism through events, resources. and positive, peer-to-peer relationship building. They also annually produce conferences, events, and now, Dare2Share LIVE, a day-long event focused on worship, ministry, and outreach to communities and schools. Over the past 28 years, Dare 2 Share has inspired and equipped over 1 million teenagers and youth leaders to talk about their faith.
FrontGate was engaged to support Dare 2 Share in promoting their mission to Energize the Church to Mobilize youth to Gospelize their world, by helping to launch their latest endeavor Dare 2 Share LIVE. Dare 2 Share LIVE is a national, live, multi-site training and outreach event. On September 23, the event was held in Denver, CO and simulcast live into over fifty churches across the nation. In its first year, Dare 2 Share LIVE succeeded in raising the profile of evangelism in youth ministry by empowering over 50,000 teenagers and youth leaders to spark a movement of Gospel Conversations throughout the nation.
The campaign ran from May to October 1 to advance promotion for the September 23rd event date. Three Press Releases were distributed, along with a Media Alert. We also created a template that was provided for local churches to use for their own promotion of the event. Stories were pitched and secured to our very broad base of Christian media outlets. Interviews were pitched and scheduled for Greg Stier, the Founder of Dare 2 Share. PRWeb was utilized to expand the reach of our press releases and to build an expanded database of media contacts for additional pick up.
