What are the Equip Seminars?

There’s nothing like a pandemic to reveal our blind spots! With quarantines, economic shakiness, figuring out school and upended routines, many of us are trying to cope with some pretty big issues. And if we’re honest, we can’t get our heads around the now, much less the future.

We’d like to invite you to check out our Equip Seminars this Fall! With some brand new classes we’ve never offered before, there’s never been a better opportunity to experience what the Bible has to say about real-life issues. These seminars are all about equipping you to live out a gospel-centered life in practical ways — even while we’re trying to follow Jesus in the middle of cultural uncertainty!

Seminar Description:
Marriage matters to God. The Bible even uses marriage as an image that reflects the gospel itself! And marriage matters to people. For most, it starts out with a pretty lofty view complete with rich symbols and intense vows.  Weddings can be stressful to plan, but they pale in comparison to the work that the marriage requires. Healthy marriages don’t simply happen. We have to put in the work to build them. God has a clear plan for building our marriages. Maybe your marriage needs to revisit some of those principles to get some things back on track. Maybe you’re planning to get married and want to start strong. This Equip class is all about covering the matters upon which strong families are built. 


How do I spend meaningful time in God’s Word every day when I have no idea where to start?

Monday Nights – October 26 – November 16 (7:00-8:30 PM)

Teacher: Anna Hopper

Platform: In Person with option for Zoom (4 weeks) 

Cost: $10

Seminar Description:
Most Christians know that reading God’s Word is important, but many rarely do.  For some, “quiet time” has always been with a devotional book instead of the Bible.  Others may have tried to read the Bible but got stuck in the so-and-so begot so-and-so’s.  If you’ve never tried to actually make a habit of reading God’s Word, if you’ve tried and given up, or if you simply want to try a new approach, this class is for you.  It will address several myths that hinder people from reading the Bible, and it will teach practical ways to interact with the scriptures. God wants us to know Him, and we get to know Him and His plan for us by getting into the Word. When we open the Word, God shows up!  


Mercy Hill Church Equip Seminars - Biblical Parenting

This class has been canceled.

Sunday Nights – October 25 – November 15 (5:00-6:30 PM)

Teachers: Brant & Abby Gordon

Platform: In Person with option for Zoom (4 Weeks) 

Cost: $10

Seminar Description:
There’s no getting around the fact that all types of voices are trying to influence our children.  So-called experts tout their own brand of parenting on every medium available: vlogs, books, articles, and even TED Talks. Who’s right? Who should we listen to?  The truth is that the family was created and ordained by God, and who better to learn from than the creator of all things?  This Equip class is designed to help parents cut through the clutter and apply biblical principles that transcend cultural trends, social norms, and even what our families look like on the outside.  If you want to know how to set your children up to be who God created them to be, this class is for you.  

Can you imagine having the space you need in your life to do what matters most?

“Prioritizing and Creating Space for God’s Mission”

Teachers: Campus Pastors (Eugene Grant, Jason Azzarello, Gary Rivers, David McNees) 

Platform: In-Person (4 Weeks)

Cost: $10

Seminar Description:
Everywhere around us we hear messages like “You can do more, you can be more, you need more” while we try to stay focused on our daily responsibilities. But do we really need more? What if that drive for more costs us more than we realize? The “Making Margin” Equip Seminar will challenge the notion that more is better while also leading us to regularly assess, refocus, and create space in our lives for what matters most.

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.”
