Grace Equip exists to equip and strengthen the church for every good work (2 Tim. 3:17).
Grace Equip is a discipleship training program designed to fit all stages in one’s spiritual development. Our aim is to equip and strengthen the church for every good work to which it is called. Grace Equip is one of the ways we make “better disciples” in our mission to “Make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ, together.” By “better disciples,” we mean that followers of Christ will become:
- Capable of Studying and Sharing God’s Word
- Strengthened in Their Biblical Literacy
- Equipped for Kingdom Service
Learning takes place within cohorts of learners who will walk through the program together, growing in their relationship with one-another as they learn together. The cohort is purposely designed to be as flexible as possible for attendees, allowing each to choose their own level of involvement and pursuit. Participants will find full-time involvement is the most enriching option.
Grace Equip utilizes the Timothy’s Initiative’s “Core Training Materials,” a discipleship curriculum flexible enough to train everyone. Using Timothy Initiative’s curriculum, Grace Equip can even train you for serving on a church planting team.
