Equipping For Leadership Dec-2015 cover“The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ.”

Ephesians 4:11-13

The Apostle Paul understands that all Christians are to be continually educated and further equipped to fulfill their calling to be full and effective members of the body of Christ. The Equipping for… publications provide resources and ideas to support congregations in accomplishing God’s purposes in the areas of worship, evangelism and mission, education and leadership.

Please contact us if you have questions or ideas and material you would like to share.
