Ephesians 4:12-16

“His purpose was to equip God’s people for the work of serving and building up the body of Christ 13 until we all reach the unity of faith and knowledge of God’s Son. God’s goal is for us to become mature adults—to be fully grown, measured by the standard of the fullness of Christ. As a result, we aren’t supposed to be infants any longer who can be tossed and blown around by every wind that comes from teaching with deceitful scheming and the tricks people play to deliberately mislead others. Instead, by speaking the truth with love, let’s grow in every way into Christ, who is the head. The whole body grows from him, as it is joined and held together by all the supporting ligaments. The body makes itself grow in that it builds itself up with love as each one does its part.

What Are "Equip Courses"

Equip courses are designed to help you THRIVE in your relationship with Jesus and in all of life. These courses are conducted online, in person, or a hybrid of both. Subject matter experts and experienced practitioners facilitate these groups that are designed to engage you in practical ways. Courses vary in length, generally lasting between four and twelve weeks. A few will also be self directed so that you may move at your own pace. 

These courses are selected to help you continue on a life long journey of growth in five areas.
