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!


EQUIP is a recognized Institutional Member of the Asia Pacific Theological Association (APTA).
