Equip Ministry School

Every Christian is called to minister, but some people have a specific call to serve within more specialized positions of leadership within the church.  This doesn’t make these people better or more spiritual, just set apart for a special assignment.  If you believe you have that calling from the Lord on your life then you should consider Equip Ministry School.

Equip Ministry School offers three levels of credentialing: Certification, Licensing, and Ordination. Each level requires one year to complete. There is a weekly in-person class where practical ministry applications are taught by Pastor Tanner. There is also additional course work to be completed during the month on your own that consists of reading and taking exams.

Equip Ministry School is designed to prepare individuals seeking ministry credentials for the sake of serving in the community (chaplains, para-church organizations, etc) or within the church (elders, pastors, ministry directors).
