ABOUT

WHAT ARE EQUIP DAYS ALL ABOUT?
EQUIP is a training day designed especially for the valuable volunteers who serve each week in your churches. Led in partnership with kids pastors who are local to each area that an EQUIP day is held, this event is meant to empower people in their God-given gifts and talents so they can make an even greater impact in children's lives for the Kingdom.  

If you are the Children or Family Ministry Pastor at your church, why not plan to attend an EQUIP day in 2018 with your team? Include it in your budget and bless your volunteers with an awesome team building, and team empowering day. You can also sign up to host an event at your own church! 

WHO IS EQUIP FOR?
EQUIP is for anyone who ministers with children and families in the local church. If you are wanting to learn strategies, and principles on how to best connect with today's kids, this day is for you. If you minister with kids as a staff member or volunteer of any age in the local church, plan to come join us. All denominations are welcome to join us at an EQUIP day.

MORE INFO

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT AT EACH EQUIP DAY?
EQUIP days will have two general sessions where we all join together for inspiring teaching, as well as a leadership panel. During those sessions there will be multiple prize giveaways! Each EQUIP day will have 6 or more workshops for volunteers to choose between, on practical, hands-on topics that will help them in their ministry environments. There will be workshops that cover each developmental age group, so whether you serve in the nursery, preschool, elementary, or preteen ages, there will be something for everyone. Each EQUIP day will have a morning and afternoon coffee break, and onsite lunch - all included in your registration (if you register on time).

Once an EQUIP location and date is finalized, you can look to see what workshops are taking place and who the presenters are for each event.

CAN I ATTEND ANY OF THE EQUIP DAYS, OR JUST THE ONES NEAR ME?
You are welcome to join us at any of the EQUIP days that work for you and your schedule!
