Editorial Reviews


In today's postmodern world of political correctness, it's refreshing to see that someone still believes that teenagers can win their unsaved friends to Christ.  Greg Stier is not only a believer, but an enthusiastic and successful motivator and equipper of young saints who want to turn their world upside down just like the early disciples did! This book is long overdue and highly recommended!
-Wayne Rice, Co-founder, Youth Specialties, Director, Understanding Your Teenager

Greg has captured a great vision for God’s purpose of evangelism and laid it out in an easy-to-understand format. Two of the aspects of this book that I appreciate most are its practical approach and easy application.  I've never used the word "easy" when it comes to evangelism before, but Outbreak really helps students and youth leaders clearly understand the need for “viral evangelism” and provides them with user-friendly help. I can’t wait for my youth ministry to be influenced by this material.
-Doug Fields, Pastor to Students, Saddleback Church, Author, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry

This book is infectious!  Once you read it, you will want to spread the news to everyone you know who works with young people.  Greg has a true heart for evangelism, and in
Outbreak, he has developed a powerful tool to help you lead the charge for effective outreach in your youth ministry!
-Josh D. McDowell

Youth leaders are in a war for our nation's teenagers, and Greg gives them practical, Bible-inspired ammunition and strategies to reach out, infect, and excite young people to a passion for God.  Each chapter of this book concludes with a review statement, a challenge for the leader, and questions for the entire youth ministry team to go over, think about, and put into action.
-Lori Salierno, CEO, Celebrate Life International

This updated guide shows you how to give relevant, infectious invitations and provides tried-and-true strategies to equip your students for viral evangelism.

More About the Author

My name is Greg. I'm a husband, a father, a preacher, an author, a twitchy revolutionary and a fanatic for Jesus.

I love my wife, my kids, and my God (not in that order!)

Give me Starbuck's coffee, wi-fi, time at the park with my kids, a movie-dinner night with my wife and I'm a happy man.

What makes me mad? Lukewarm Christians, bad theology and passionless churches.
What makes me furious? Horrible Christian drivers with stupid Christian bumper stickers
What makes me happy? Jesus (the real Jesus that is), Java, arenas full of teenagers and vacations with the fam.

Hobbies: Movie watching, telling stories and working out just enough to not get fat and be almost semi-quasi buff.

Sports: Golfing? Tried it and no! I can't afford the balls (lost 20 in one round and got a score of 165 and stopped counting. True story) Basketball? Football? Baseball? No. No. No. Is preaching a sport? Please say yes.

Special Talents: I can work numchucks and do a killer fake throw up (not all at the same time)

Background: I don't come from a church going, pew sitting, hymn singing religious family. I come from a tough urban family filled with bodybuilding, tobacco chewing, beer drinking thugs and that's just the women (my signature line!) One by one my tough, urban family members were led to Christ and transformed. The impact that Jesus had on all my uncles, aunts and cousins touched my heart so much that from the time I was elevenish I knew that I was going to be a preacher someday'tadaaa! Praise God!

Favorite Sports Team: The Denver Broncos

Least Favorite Sports Team: The Oakland Raiders

Could care less about: College basketball

Past Vocations: Hay Hauler, Roofer (eight years!), Pizza Delivery Driver (Dominos!), UPS Truck Loader (ugh!), church planter and preaching pastor

Current Vocation: President of Dare 2 Share Ministries

Favorite Movie of all time: Sergeant York (Gary Cooper, 1948, 11 Academy Awards. Check it out.)

Second Favorite Movie of all time: A tie between Rocky and Braveheart

Format: Hardcover
I loved Outbreak! It invites teenagers and youth workers to enter into the action of seeing young hearts changed and effected for eternity. The viral nature of truth being passed around, and author Greg Stier's obvious passion for evangelism exude throughout the book. Outbreak is contagious and captures a real-time, real-world approach to impacting teenagers for God. Also, the commitment to sharing propositional Truth and not just personal opinions and experiences is worth the read in itself.

This is a great book for youth ministers who are looking to grow their youth group with evangelism. The author desires the reader not to sell out the gospel in order to grow their youth group. He goows through how to get more youth in your church, keep them, and teach them how to reach out to others. He also helps the reader understand how to share the gospel Biblically. My favorite chapter is where he shows how to and how not to share the gospel by shooting down old phrases that are not even a part of Scripture. I recommend this book to anyone looking to expand their youth ministry beyond the four walls of the church.
