The Equipping Group exists to come alongside churches & organizations, to serve leaders, shape cultures, & train planters for fruitful, gospel-infused mission & ministry in our ever-changing context.

We provide engaging resources and multi-faceted training, to train everyday disciples of Jesus, ministry leaders, and church planters to live out Jesus’ good news, in community and on mission, for the glory of God and the expansion of his kingdom. This includes (among other endeavors) two different ministry residencies, and advising/coaching for church planters.

Discipleship happens both in the everyday lives of Jesus’ followers as they discover who he created them to be, and also as churches create cultures of health and sending — so The Equipping Group creates and curates accessible content to bolster your life, mission, and ministry.

We are not a network or denomination; we are simply a “training collective,” with fruitful and experienced practitioners who provide training and resources. We partner with local churches, organizations, and denominations like yours, to provide high-quality, hands-on trainings for your specific context and needs.
