Equip

The second part of our mission is to equip pastors, churches and organizations in areas where we minister with  leadership skills training, equipment and supplies, so they can more effectively reach the needy in their spheres of influence.  This is accomplished through short-term missions teams using their skills & passion on the mission field.  

To Equip the Body of Christ.
