Equip, Raise and Release Leaders Within The Church

EQUIP is a church-based training that is designed to provide a sound biblical and ministry education for all believers at an affordable price and in a convenient way.

We are not a traditional Bible College but a general school of ministry training, designed for practical and theological training.  The educational model of EQUIP is one course for a short-term period that is four to six weekend classes.  The curriculum is designed to ensure that you succeed in your ministry training process, so that you can be who God has called you to be!


The vision of EQUIP is to train Kingdom men and women who are prepared for 21st century ministry quickly yet thoroughly, evaluated fairly, and dispatched freely to do ministry that is biblical, empowering, and impactful.  Our vision is to become a Kingdom resource for the Body of Christ that assists the local church in training, equipping, and empowering their leadership with a sound biblical education that is practical, affordable and accessible!

If you are seeking more than information, but transformation and you desire true Holy Spirit operation in the service of the Lord, EQUIP

Nehemiah was both a builder and a reformer. On his arrival in Jerusalem, he set out to build the wall of Jerusalem despite the great hostility and completed the task in a record time of 52 days. As a reformer, he launched himself into building the people of Israel as a community of God, committing themselves to and adhering to the covenant of God.  Nehemiah had his way of leading the people of God closer together as a community as well as closer the Lord. There are valuable lessons from Nehemiah for Christian discipleship and leadership in the Church today.
