What is the Dare 2 Share Conference?
Our youth ministry has had an excelling history attending Dare 2 Share Conferences. The Dare 2 Share conference is hands-down our most effective tool at building a passion within our students to reach their friends, family, and fellow students with the gospel. It is precisely this sort of passion that fuels our ministries throughout the year, making the Dare 2 Share conference a crucial part of our ministry calendar. At this conference students will…
- …be challenged to take and inward look at their own faith.
- …learn and reinforce witnessing techniques as they share their faith.
- …take part in outreach opportunities while at the conference.

This Sunday we cover the parable of the unforgiving servant. He’s someone that I’ll admit I pass blame on pretty quickly for being so thickheaded. He was forgiven such a big debt! Why couldn’t he forgive a small one?
Then I realize he’s me.
Why is it that I pass judgment quickly instead of dispensing grace liberally? Maybe you’re better at it than I am, but I suspect we all have a little “unforgiving servant” inside us.
This week in Sunday School we’ll discover that Christians are to forgive other Christians in the same manner they have been forgiven.
We’ll have some conversation sheets for you to grab on this topic.
This is a mystery event. Details will be made available in the 3rd week of May, after registration closes.
What we can tell you now is this:
- Youth will get an exciting, hands-on look at leadership from a unique perspective.
- Practical and biblical principles on leadership will be shared.

Cost will be in the $10-$15 range.
