KANSAS CITY — It’s a Friday evening in Kansas City, and inside a crowded auditorium full of about 22,000 teenagers, a man named Jason Evert is walking back and forth across a blue-lit stage.
Evert is in his mid-30s, but he has the youthful, energetic manner of a college student. Tonight, he looks like a college student too: black necklace, spiked blonde hair, sleeves rolled up.
Sometimes, at moments like this, Evert feels like he’s in the middle of a Justin Bieber concert. And by the time he’s done, the entire auditorium will be on their feet, clapping and cheering.
Evert’s topic: sex. But what makes his message unique in today’s media landscape is what he’s saying: kids should remain pure and chaste until marriage.
