THE CHALLENGE OF REACHING TEENS
Like you, we know how difficult it can be to reach teens with the gospel in today's culture. The deterioration of the family and the secularization of society have created tremendous obstacles in the battle for the hearts and minds of the next generation. For these reasons, Stand For Truth has been working with churches for the past 10 years to take the truth of the gospel to students right where they are: the public schools.
We have a plan to help you impact students in your community.
A SIMPLE PLAN TO CONNECT WITH STUDENTS
2. THE CONCERT
1. THE ASSEMBLY
A school schedules a daytime assembly with national youth speaker, Joel Penton.
We hold an evening concert where students can come back for live music. They also hear the gospel.
3. THE IMPACT
Students receive gospel-centered resources and get introduced to local church leaders.
I was humbled by the number of teens that were talking to me after the outreach. You guys have definitely breathed new life into me and our church as a whole!”
- Pastor Bobby Allen, Whitesboro, New York

Live Events Coordinator
Ask Jillian. She's super nice.
Q: How are you able to do this in public schools?
A: We provide schools with a high quality, non-religious assembly during the day. The evening outreach is after school hours and entirely optional for students. The evening event is approached strategically separate and is not sponsored by the school in any way.
Q: What message are you sharing with the students?
A: The daytime school assembly message is all about the importance of keeping commitments. The message shared at the evening concert includes a clear gospel presentation about Jesus' death for sin and his resurrection. Students are challenged to put their trust in Christ. The Stand For Truth Statement of Faith is here.
Q: How are church leaders able to connect with students?
A: Church leaders can be introduced on stage during the evening outreach. Students receive handouts about how and where they can connect. Youth leaders, along with the band and speaker, are invited to have personal interaction with students at the end of the event.
Q: What is required of participating churches?
A: Nothing is "required" of churches beyond attending and connecting with students. Stand For Truth handles all the event logistics. However, there are a few ways you can help make the outreach a success if you are willing to volunteer. See below.
