Winter Jam, one of the most successful Christian concerts, is making its rounds again, this time hitting 42 cities throughout the U.S. This year’s line up of performing artists is as strong as ever including Christian rock band Red, 116 hip hop artist Andy Mineo, worship bands Passion, Hillsong Young & Free, Winter Jam creators Newsong, headliner Crowder, and many others.
For the second consecutive year, Dare 2 Share founder Greg Stier and his teammate Zane Black, founder of Lovin Life, are on the tour delivering the gospel alongside Louie Giglio in a rotation*. This year Winter Jam has partnered Dare 2 Share to provide a brief youth leaders training entitled 7 Values That Will Transform Your Ministry. These values come from the book of Acts, and were compiled from a survey of a 1000 growing churches that saw new conversion growth within their communities. These seven values were at the core of each of those churches, and Greg and Zane want to personally share it with the youth leaders at Winter Jam.
Here are the 7 Values That Provide a Firm Foundation for Transformational Gospel Advancing Youth Ministry
1. Intercessory prayer fuels it.
2. Relational evangelism drives it.
3. Leaders fully embrace and model it.
4. A disciple multiplication strategy guides it.
5. A bold vision focuses it.
6. Biblical outcomes measure it.
7. Ongoing programs reflect it.
You also get to hear powerful testimonies from some of the artists up-close and personal just for youth leaders. They want to encourage you and let you know that you have one of the most important ministry jobs in the world, helping to disciple the young leaders in our church families. The training takes place 30 minutes before the concert start time so you won’t miss any of the show. Winter Jam also gives each leader a free gift bag for the first 200 attendees to show their appreciation for all that you do.
The Life in 6 Words App
They utilize the Life in 6 Words App during their gospel presentation and ask everyone to text in to receive a free video series that helps one walk in their relationship with Jesus. These resources are free and were designed specifically to help disciple one another in growing closer to Christ.
