Equip takes place over three 10-week sessions during the course of a year. Through reading books, watching video content featuring seminary-level instructors and Bible teachers, engaging in online activities, and participating in weekly cohort discussions, you will have the opportunity to grow in your faith and put what you’re learning into practice.
Equip will focus on enriching your personal relationship with Jesus through the DEVOTION session, anchoring your theology and doctrinal beliefs in DOCTRINE, and then training you to make disciples through the final course of the year, DISCIPLESHIP.
If you’re ready to invest in taking steps toward growing deeper in your faith...then Equip is for you!
We believe that Equip will give you the tools and resources you’ll need to continue on mission here at Outward, loving Jesus and living outward.
Equip meets over the course of a year in three 10-week sections: Devotion, Doctrine and Discipleship. Cohorts begin in January, April, or September. No Equip cohorts take place over the summer.
In addition to the weekly cohort meeting (1.5 hours), you can plan for 1.5-2 hours a week in reading or assignments. This varies by person.
Equip meets different days of the week. The upcoming Salem cohort is meeting Sundays after service. Other cohorts may meet at different times or days.
Yes, you are responsible for purchasing the books required for Equip through the 3 sessions. The books range in price and can often be found sold for a discount. Outward does have a few books available to borrow.
This is a personal decision, but most people find that the commitment of Equip takes place of an Outward Group for the time period they are in the cohort. God has called us to community and the Equip cohort has the feel of a community group that meets weekly during each of the three sessions.
Love Jesus. Live Outward.
