Equipping believes in the value of ministry to youth and children.

Equipping’s purpose is to train youth and children’s workers so that they are equipped to minister effectively to this generation. Our heart is to impart, instruct, inspire and connect with you as a leader, so you can be your best!

Equipping is dedicated to honoring you in your calling to youth and children and give your relevant training for reaching this generation. We want to encourage, inspire and equip you with resources so you can do your ministry effectively and to help you network with other leaders as you grow in your leadership roles.  Whether you are just getting started in ministry or stepping into the lead role at your church, Equipping is here for you.

 

The mission of Equipping is to train, resource, encourage and release men and women into one of the most important callings in the Kingdom today: bringing the hope of the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ to the children and youth of our nation. Those who have committed their lives to lead this work are often the unsung heroes of the church, those who take the ‘long view’ of ministry, many times not seeing the fruit of their labor for many years. Yet, it’s these people that have the greatest opportunity for seeing lives changed as a result, the course of our nation formed.

‘The Hand that Rocks the Cradle is the Hand that Rules the World’ is a poem that was written by William Ross Wallace in 1865, where he praised motherhood as a preeminent force for change in the world. In the same way, those that lead and influence the lives of students will also change the world because it’s a high calling and a powerful force. At Equipping, it’s our privilege to partner with and run alongside this vital set of leaders.

Our Ministry

We have all heard it said that our students aren’t just the church of the future, they are the church of today. If we believe this, it is crucial that we invest in their lives in an ongoing way. One of the best ways to invest in children and youth is to invest in their leaders because that Godly influence and mentoring will be there for a long time.

To this end, Equipping partners with local churches, organizations, youth workers, children’s workers, etc., to bring ‘essential training’ to as many leaders as we can. Our world is complicated and so is the work we do, but it’s important that we’re careful not to forget the basics, the starting points of our ministry. We deliver our curriculum in 2 distinct formats: one is through our On-Site seminars and the other is through our On-Line training. Along with mentoring, consulting, providing and highlighting resources, Equipping aims to provide the best in every area.
