Equip Conference 2022
February 26, 2022
8:00am – 2:30pmCategory: Conferences
The Apostle Paul said, “Who is sufficient for these things?” when he considered the incomparable weight of gospel ministry. This attitude of insufficiency drives the heart of every effective teacher of the Word of God to be prayerfully dependent upon the God of the Word. Join us for this year’s Equip Conference as we seek to grow in being servants of the Lord who pray fervently and effectively.
Whether you are a small group leader, a Sunday School teacher, a mentor, a pastor, an elder, some other church leader, or just a Christian who wants to grow, there will be something helpful and encouraging for you at this year’s Equip Conference.
