What is Equip?


What is Equip?


At Equip Conference, our aim is to train people to understand and teach the word of God.

We get together with Christians from all over NZ, to sing God’s praises and listen to God’s Word. With support and feedback from pastors and Bible teachers from around the country, we gather in small groups and give you tools to help you understand any part of the Bible, and to teach it to others. We call them strand groups, and each year at Equip you will complete a different strand.


Over the course of the week you will learn to write Bible studies, Sunday School lessons, or talks. 


Equip Conference is designed to be completed over a number of years, with delegates completing one strand each year. These small groups are where you will learn how to handle God's word correctly and teach it to others.

 

“If I had the choice of only one conference to send young and old to, it would be Equip. Equip does exactly what it says it does - it equips people. It teaches people how to study the Bible correctly with a view to applying it to their lives and also to teach others also. It is brilliant. This is why churches I have pastored have subsidised folk to go. As a result of Equip, leadership in the church is developed and God’s Kingdom grows. Come along and try it out, you will not be disappointed. ” 

Richard, pastor in Auckland

 

Strand 1

In strand one you will learn how to understand a New Testament passage and be given a method for teaching it to others.

Strand 2

In strand two (Biblical Theology) you will be given tools to help you understand an Old Testament passage.

Strand 4

In strand 4 (Ethics) you will be given tools to help you understand what the bible teaches regarding ethical issues.

 

Strand 3

In strand three (Systematic Theology), you will learn how to discover what the whole Bible says on any particular subject concerning God.


Youth Strand

In our youth strand (for those in school years 9-13), we teach some basic methods of Bible study and join the main sessions with the keynote speakers.

SERVICE Strand - Volunteers

We encourage delegates who have completed each of the strands, to return to Equip Conference as a volunteer. Our volunteers work in the background to make sure the conference runs smoothly. If you would like to volunteer to help in this way, please register as a service strand delegate.

SEMINARS

In the afternoons at Equip you will attend different seminars which look at practical aspects of Christian ministry. Over the course of the week you will have the opportunity to attend seminars on things like evangelism, youth ministry, leading a small group, discipleship, personal holiness and more.


Our vision is to see people all over Aotearoa NZ, proclaiming the powerful Word of God

Anyone is welcome to join us at Equip Conference for our evening meetings and no registration is required. The meetings begin at 7:30pm and are followed by supper. Join us as we sing praises to our Heavenly Father, listen to His Word preached, and share fellowship together. It's a great way to be a part of the conference and to get a taste of what a full week at Equip is like.
