Notable Points:

  • 21×21: trying to plant 21 churches on 21 college campuses by 2021
  • Does our methodology fit our theology:
    • If we believe that the gospel is so powerful are we really acting that way.
    • What are we doing to make disciples that make disciples.
  • We should plant churches that are going to eventually plant churches.
    • Allowing students to be introduced into church plants help to produce culture.
      • Have students multiply themselves as students.  This is how you teach them to eventually become church planters.
  • Do we ask students to pray about church planting and being staff members in the future.
  • As leaders we need to be looking at our students and being able evaluate their abilities and cast vision.
    • Don’t let your leaders set the bar low.
    • Within college there is a paradigm that students are not ready to do big things or they have to wait to start their life.
    • Help students to understand that God throughout history has used young people and college students.
  • Young students may not have experience, so keep them close so you can help teach them.
  • What would it look like if you identified 5-10 leaders who are freshman and laid out a vision for planting?
