High school seniors and their families can celebrate simultaneously across the nation in an inspirational, God-centered, one-night event…The National Senior Sendoff!

The National Senior Sendoff will give families an opportunity to commission their high school senior for the journey ahead during this global pandemic.

FAITH NEWSWIRE – Arvada, CO— High school seniors have waited for these special moments for 12 long years. They’ve worked hard and overcome many challenges. This is THEIR TIME to celebrate this significant academic accomplishment. The Class of 2020 will be the first class prohibited from celebrating the memory-making milestones so many of us have taken for granted.

In response, Greg Stier, Founder of Dare 2 Share (and father of a high school senior), Faith Christian Academy (where his teens attend school), and interlinc (producers of the popular ConGRADulations! music-media grad gift) are teaming up to provide an event to encourage and inspire high school seniors and their families during this time of global crisis. The National Senior Sendoff is the official streaming event of the ConGRADulations! Class of 2020 Gift Project.

The National Senior Sendoff…An inspirational virtual event for high school seniors and their families during the Pandemic will be held on MAY 28th, 6:00 – 7:00 pm MDT.

Gabrielle Odom, a high school senior from Minnetonka High School who has spoken at many national events, will be doing the senior address at The National Senior Sendoff. She said, “A global pandemic will not stop us seniors from changing the world for God!” Greg Stier, who will deliver the keynote address, said, “These young people are living out history right now, so they might as well be inspired to go out and make history for the glory of God!”

In addition to addresses from Gabrielle and Greg, the evening will include encouraging remarks from multiple Christian musicians, artists, and professional athletes. Grammy Award winning Christian music artist TobyMac, who will be sharing words of encouragement at the NSS said, “I know the Class of 2020 has looked forward to a prom, spring sports, and graduation. Everything’s changed. But where there’s change and hard times, there is God and He is going to get us through this.”  

The National Senior Sendoff will end with a time of prayer that will allow the families of seniors to commission them (“send them off”) for the mission God has for them.

Teens can now bring hope and encouragement of the Gospel to their friends “virtually” through the Life in 6 Words app

Dare 2 Share Ministries’ Life in 6 Words mobile app now allows students to share the Gospel in their own words, from the safety of their own homes.

FAITH NEWSWIRE – Arvada, CO— Much has changed in the past few weeks, leaving, many people’s lives in turmoil and confusion. Remarking on how this pandemic has impacted teenagers, Greg Stier, the founder of Dare 2 Share stated, “We are living at a time where teen anxiety and depression are being accelerated like never before because of the Coronavirus pandemic”

Connection is more important than ever, yet harder and harder to find, leaving many people searching for some kind of comfort. With this in mind, Dare 2 Share Ministries has built an Audio Story function into the Life in 6 Words mobile app, so that teens can engage their friends with the conversation that matters most – the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Armed with a way to share their faith in an audio format, this opens up a world of possibilities for students to bring hope to their friends while getting their minds off of their own situation.

Focusing their attention outward can be extremely healthy for students. Echoing this idea, Greg Stier said, “When the Christian teenagers in our youth groups are mobilized to reach out to their unbelieving friends with the message of Jesus, not only do they bring hope to the hopeless, but they grow spiritually in the process!”

On April 11, 2020, Dare 2 Share released its latest update for the Life in 6 Words mobile app with the Audio Story feature that explains the gospel in their own voice to friends across the street or around the world. This latest feature creates an app that gives believing students the tool to engage in spiritual conversations, pray for unsaved friends and family, and set up groups of like-minded teens who all want to bring the hope of Jesus to this world.

“We wanted to give teens a way to have gospel conversations in the midst of this pandemic, and that’s exactly what this new feature allows.” said Debbie Bresina, President Dare 2 Share.

During this time of unprecedented turmoil, people are more open to the good news of Jesus than any time in recent history. Now with the Life in 6 Words app, students can bring hope and encouragement to their world, without having to leave their homes.

The Life in 6 Words app is free to download and can be found on both Apple’s App Store and Google play.
