I remember when I was in Israel with http://gyi.cc/ our theme for the 2 week study with multiple leaders from across the globe is Bold moves. This challenged many leaders to really think about their next bold move, and the call that God places on them. Jesus imparted His bold vision, so they could carry out His Bold Cause to reach the Nations. As I look at my current levels of leadership and how God is moving me way beyond what I can do, I go boldly because Jesus promisesd us His presence and we go with His Bold authority . In this day and age I believe for us to reach this generation with this generation, as well as reaching every teen every where, we need Bold men to take on the Bold vision God places upon them. That is why I have a partnership https://www.dare2share.org/about/founder/ and Greg tweeted @dare2share’s new vision statement: “Every teen everywhere hearing the Gospel from a friend.” #Stumin
Our bold move is seeking to reach every teen in Africa and beyond. This is our Bold vision, and continue to pray with us as we seek to mobilise young people with a passion for Christ and a passion for his cause.
Hudson Palgrave Boakye-Danquah from ghana said;
“Unpacking the 5 BOLD MOVES that Jesus made ; 1. Geographic location. 2. Relational Investment. 3. To the other side 4. The way of the cross. 5. Multiply everywhere. There is no way we can make disciples and build a movement of disciple makers of we are not intentional about studying Jesus lifestyle.
Palgrave has spent this week with me strategically and in prayer for the African continent, and we are really praying and seeking God. We continue to pray for partnerships, in prayer and finances to grow the international side of the movement.
Palgrave is a very close friend of mine and is committed to what God has called him to do in Ghana and in Africa. I have attached his video below, please watch the clip when you have time. We are committed to every teen in Africa, and God is beginning to grow the movement across Africa and the reality of every teen hearing the gospel from a friend is becoming a reality. We are looking forward to training leaders from Zambia, Ghana, Rwanda and getting them to mobilise their teens to share gospel conversations in the next few weeks. This week with Palgrave has been a learning curve for me as well, and really understanding our African continent and teens.
Arguably, compared to other continents, Africa has a very small proportion of younger leaders between 35 and 55. Paradoxically, the continent has the youngest population in the world, with a median age of 19.5 years according to the U.N.Oct 29, 2015
The African continent is filled with teens.I love teens, and so do many of the leaders like Palgrave. Here is a video of my passion for teens, watch it and you can get a glimpse of my heart. This video was made by Dare2Share for their presidents gathering. Join the movement.
We are preparing for our first LTC (Lead the Cause) here in South Africa. Please continue to pray with us as we seek to ENERGIZE the church to MOBILISE their teens to GOSPELIZE their world. We continue to pray that God would provide the resources needed for all 3 events, so please continue to pray for us as we expect to train and equip 200 teens and key leaders at our events happening in 3 cities.
Please dream with me as I dream with Palgrave and other leaders from Africa and the world to replicate this in their own contexts and cities in Africa and around the globe.
We are grateful to you as a friend and supporter and really praise the Lord for you for raising you for such a time as this.
Again I ask you partner with us and for the Bold vision for Africa. What is your Bold Move?
