What are the Online Equip Seminars?

In Ephesians 4:12 the Bible says that God gives the church shepherds and teachers “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.” The purpose of the Mercy Hill Equip Seminars is to provide biblical and theological teaching to equip everyday Christians to live out their faith in daily life.

Monday Nights – May 18, 25, June 1, 8 (8:00-9:30PM)

Seminar Description:
What if you knew that you had one of the most important jobs in the world? The reality is that if you’re a parent, you do. The Bible is clear that parenting is one of the greatest callings and responsibilities that God can give to a person. And yet, some of the most rewarding things in life are by far the hardest. Parenting is no exception. This seminar will equip parents of all experience levels (whether you have toddlers or teenagers) and future parents to know what the Bible says about parenting and what God’s expectations for parents are. Furthermore, if you’re looking for practical parenting advice for all stages of parenting we’ll see how the Bible is rich with just such wisdom. Our Kids Director and Student Director are excited to help you on the journey of discipling your kids according to God’s design.

Seminar Description:
Christians are assaulted from all sides by our culture and its increasing hostility toward Christianity. Everyone with a Christian worldview needs to be prepared for this battle with an understanding of the arguments and evidence for the existence of God and a thorough understanding of the major objections that you are likely to hear. Through learning many different ways to present the truth of Christianity, as well as learning powerful answers to many of the objections, this seminar will help to build up your own faith and prepare you to defend the faith to others.

Seminar Description:
If your health is important to you, you not only go to the doctor when there is an emergency, you go just for a check-up to make sure you’re on the right track. We know marriage is important to God because it was a part of his good creation (Gen. 2), and a healthy marriage displays the gospel (Eph. 5); therefore, it is important to Christians. But because of the fall (Gen. 3), our marriages need constant attention, counsel, and check-ups. This seminar will be for the engaged, the newly-married, the marriage that is healthy, and the marriage that is in crisis. In this workshop-style seminar, our elders will help you think biblically about marriage while also giving you practical applications you can use each day—spanning from topics on how to build check-up and maintenance patterns into your marriage to restoring your marriage when it seems to be holding on by a thread.

Seminar Description:
What does the Bible say about how to discover God’s will for your life? Making decisions in accordance with the will of God is one of the most pressing issues Christians face on a day to day basis. The goal of this seminar is to give the Christian confidence in making decisions that align with God’s will.

 

 

What are people saying about Equip?

“I’ve enjoyed Equip because of the opportunity for in depth study, practical training, and the blessing of learning from pastors and other leaders. I know I need to be in the Word more, and this equipping increases my yearning and my understanding! The added benefit of connecting with others across all four campuses increases the community closeness I love at MH.”

“I think of the Equip Seminars as a way of equipping Christian soldiers with the weapons we need to continue the good fight well. It meant the world to me and gave me great spiritual insight.”

“The Defending the Faith Equip class was a class that truly reinforced my belief and strengthened my knowledge. It was incredibly insightful and educational. Jason is a brilliant teacher and thinker. His method of teaching was phenomenal. He presented all evidence, arguments, and logic in a way that left very little room for rebuttal. One of the most exciting parts of this Equip class was how I learned that as we advance in science, the arguments against a divine creator are getting weaker and weaker. I loved every session of the class. It will help anyone with building a scientific foundation of fact for reasons to believe that God is real and that the Bible is the Word of God.”

“Sometimes people will ask, ‘What’s the next step,’ or ‘how do I get to the next level in relationship with the Lord and understanding of the Bible?’ Equip is it. It allows us to learn and grow in ways and areas that we may not be able to without direct instruction. We have a great resource in the leaders, elders, and pastors here at Mercy Hill, and Equip allows ALL of us to access that wealth of knowledge and understanding.”

“Equip Seminars are encouraging and inspiring. We enjoy the biblical, focused teaching which equips and empowers us to live out a gospel-centered life.”
