Equipping

What's God telling you? Share it here.   |   We’d love to pray for you! Let us know how.

Ephesians 4 is a chapter in the Bible that has really made a big impact on us as a church. It outlines that one of the primary roles of leaders in the local church is to "equip the saints for the work of ministry." Equipping or growing in our faith takes place in multiple ways, and there is no “perfect” way. However, there are some specific ways we aim to achieve this.

Connect Groups

The first step of any disciple is to live in community with other disciples. Throughout the week, we offer Connect Groups that meet in homes throughout the community. Real life change happens in community with other disciples, and these environments allow that to take place! We offer groups based on age, gender, stage of life, or ones with a little bit of everyone!

Connection Equipping Academy

The Connection Equipping Academy is an in-depth environment focused on helping believers grow in their faith, and prepare disciples to engage in some area of ministry. These can last between 6-10 weeks and require more of a commitment on behalf of the participant.

Close the Gap Experiences

Close the Gap experiences are one-night sessions that help "close the gap" between the things we know about God and the things we have personally experienced. For example, instead of just hearing a message on why reading God’s word is important, you could experience reading God’s word together with other believers, and learn how to discern what God is speaking through it.

Heart and Soul

Many churches use the term membership, but our goal is not to have a long church roster, but a group of people committed arm and arm with the mission of Jesus and his Church.  Heart and Soul explores what it looks like to be Heart and Soul with God, Heart and Soul with Connection, and ultimately how we as a church can be Heart and Soul with you.

Serving

We believe serving also has the ability to equip you in your faith in many different ways. We refer to our volunteers as “Connectors;” whether that is teaching the Bible to a child, welcoming a new person, or praying on behalf of others, serving is a way for us to live out our faith.

If you love kids, this is the ministry for you! Our children’s team has the opportunity to share God’s love in a direct and tangible way every week. You have the option of working with many different age ranges. There's no experience necessary, just a willingness to serve.

A warm smile, a firm handshake, these are the experiences that make a church a home. When you're serving in Guest Services, you set the tone of a person’s visit by creating a welcoming environment. It’s also a great opportunity to make a ton of new friends that you’ll soon call family!

Connection Students is our middle and high school ministry. We live in times where students are pulled in so many different directions and many times none of those directions include Jesus. Too often we see students graduate High School, many of which grew up in the Church, and never continue in their faith because they didn’t have a solid foundation. Our goal at Connection Students is to help them truly own their faith, to take it into their own hands, and know how to live for Jesus each and every day.

As a member of this team, you will be in direct contact with people of our church who are hurting, broken, and questioning the things of God. You will get to pray with people over a range of situations that may include accepting Jesus’ invitation for salvation for the first time, getting baptized, dealing with substance abuse, etc. Our hope is that as you pray for people and engage them in conversations, you reflect the heart of Jesus and help lead them to their Next Step.
