ABOUT LEAD THE CAUSE
WHAT IT IS
Lead THE Cause is a summer teen evangelism training even that helps youth leaders create passionate disciples who are reaching their word with the gospel.
Youth groups spend an intensive week praying, learning and conspiring together to reach their community for Christ. They experience:
- Deep Prayer – Interceding for their lost friends. Students spend the first day and a half aligning their heart with God’s and His desire for all to come to faith in Him.
- Faith Sharing – Outreach opportunities to share the gospel. Two entire afternoons are dedicated to hands on outreach, speaking with strangers, starting gospel conversations. Students are also challenged to bring up the gospel with friends and family back home.
- Vision Planning – Conspiring together to reach their community for Christ. Groups pray and plan ways they can reach their own communities with the gospel, coming away with a strategic plan and specific goals.
WHAT IT DOES
This powerful week really flips the switch within the hearts and minds of your students. It changes youth ministry culture from teens being the consumers to the creators of ministry opportunities. Students come away:
- energized in their faith
- passionate about the lost
- equipped with tools to reach their friends and a plan to get started
The experience empowers youth to make a difference for Christ in their circles of influence and gives youth leaders the training they need to fuel the movement by learning how to create a Gospel Advancing Ministry.
WHY IT WORKS
Teens love a challenge. Students are used to being challenged at school, on the sports field, and just about everywhere but church. But difficulty is at the heart of growth and risk is inherent in just about every endeavor that’s worth doing. We believe young people are capable of great things and they appreciate it when adults – and the Church – believe they can do more.
When students are given the chance to go deep, in prayer and worship, and in evangelism, their faith becomes their own and Christ’s Cause to seek and save the lost becomes their cause.
A rapid intensification event, Lead THE Cause is the training ground, the crucible, where concentrated, intentional time with God can kick-start their growth as a disciple and a disciple-maker.
A WORD FROM PAST ATTENDEES
Lead THE Cause is the one event that really changed the culture of our ministry.
It’s just inspiring and really fueling to my faith.
It helps you really take what you see in the scriptures and put it into practice in your youth ministry.
