What is EQUIP?                                                                                                               

Every church wants more leaders. Every church wants to see their current leaders develop into better leaders. That's where EQUIP comes in. EQUIP is a conference designed for the local church and offers leadership training in all aspects of ministry. In fact, EQUIP offers 20+ areas of ministry training. Whether you are a pastor, children's minister, deacon or lay leader, EQUIP has something to help you become a better leader in your church.
