Greg Stier

Founder and President, Dare 2 Share Ministries International

Founder and president of Dare 2 Share, a ministry to teens, Greg Stier calls himself a “twitchy revolutionary.” After watching his tough, urban family transformed as they came to Christ, Stier knew he was going to be a preacher by the time he was about 11 years old. The veteran youth minister and sought-after speaker dedicated himself full-time to Dare 2 Share following the 1999 mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. In the two decades since, Stier has spoken to over one million teens in major venues across the nation and impacted hundreds of thousands of youth with Jesus’ gospel message of hope.

Stier is well-known for his ability to inspire teenagers to action by communicating biblical truth through amazing true-life stories and side-splitting humor. This ability to connect with teens has made him a nationally-known speaker and author who speaks to the heart of teen issues and helps teens find their significance in God. As a dynamic communicator, Stier has had the privilege of appearing on several national television and radio shows. His ministry continues to equip teens to act on their faith.

In addition, he has authored 16 books. He writes, “Our world today is filled with many good and worthy causes, but the cause that consumed Jesus is the ultimate cause! His cause is THE Cause…to make disciples who make disciples.”

Stier completed his Bachelor of Arts in Youth Ministry from Colorado Christian College in 1988. Colorado Christian University awarded Stier the honorary degree of Doctor of Humanities in May 2015 for his continuing service to Christ and His Kingdom.

He and his wife, Debbie, live in the Denver area and have one son.
