The Nation’s Leading Student Evangelism Training

When an urban mission trip collides with intense discipleship training, you get focused students that are eager, life-long followers of Christ and His mission!

That’s exactly what happens at this week-long, summer, discipleship & evangelism training for high school teens. And with Sonlife and Dare 2 Share, ministries with 25+ years of experience, the content is sure to stick.

During the week, your students will have the chance to:

  • Participate in small and large group training sessions developed to help them relationally share the gospel and multiply disciples.
  • Share the Gospel one-on-one with unbelievers in your city
  • Create an intentional strategy for spreading the Gospel at home.
  • Develop practical skills and witnessing approaches to help instill confidence and passion for sharing their faith while developing them into leaders who can train others.
