Equipping University

Equipping University

In the summer of 2000, our pastor had a vision. He dreamed of hundreds of people attending numerous elective classes offering our members, guests and the community an opportunity to learn more about the Bible as it applies to their daily lives.  Numerous churches have “Discipleship Training” courses. However, we began to think of going a little further with that idea. Ultimately, Equipping University has become a systematic educational journey similar in scope to the curriculum at a small Christian college. In Paul’s second letter to Timothy, he reminded the young minister that “all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”  We want to offer classes on every level  so that each and every person learns how the Bible intersects with life and is equipped with Biblical knowledge to be ready to face the world and all its challenges.

Current Session

January 3 - February 28 (8 Weeks)

The 2018 Winter EU session will feature a variety of 4 week classes that will be offered consecutively two times.  You will be able to choose from two classes and take them in the order of your choice. This will allow us to offer classes that we feel are needed but not necessarily suitable for a full 8-12 week period. The only exception will be the Immerse: The Bible Reading Experience class led by Skip Cartin which will run the entire 8 weeks of Winter EU. Classes will begin on Wednesday, January 3 at 6:30 P.M.

The  dates for the first teaching of the classes will be January 3, 10, 17 (snowed out), 24 and 31.

The classes will then be taught again February 7, 14, 21 and 28.
