Your ability to launch and grow a Destino movement comes down to two things: 1) how much God moves and 2) how successful you are at multiplying leaders. This is the core thing you need to focus on. If all you do is gather Christians, then you’ll never reach the campus.

A great resource to help you take new believers and begin to develop them into leaders is the Essentials bible study. We’ve blogged about it why we think it is so great before, but they just came out with some exciting updates that we wanted to pass your way. Watch this video and then head over to http://essentials24.org to learn more. We highly recommend this Bible study resource.

    I didn’t find the bible studies themselves that great of a resource. I tried leading out of them as well did a couple of my students. We didn’t use the video’s though so I’m thinking that’s a key element to their effectiveness.

      Paul, 

      We used them for a few years in our movement along with different videos that were offered (or we found online). They seemed to be pretty effective for us.

      I’m not saying this for y’alls campus, but for us the effectiveness of the Essentials study really depended on the attitude of the students who were leading and participating. On average if the student had grown up in church they felt like these studies were “beneath” them, that they needed something meatier. If the student was a new believer then they really went for the Essentials studies.

      So, on our campus, if we were working with prideful Christian kids then the study flopped. If the group was majority non or new believers, then they went really well. 

      Essentials focuses mainly on application and not on knowledge. The Christian kids felt like they already knew everything, even if they weren’t living it out.

      That was our campus.

      What did you students express about the studies? Would be interested to hear if others had similar thoughts to our students or had different thoughts altogether.
