And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds, and teachers to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,  from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. ~Ephesians 4:11-16

Equipping classes at Calvary are part of the Biblical call to “equip the saints for the work of ministry.” Each class runs for a defined season,
is small in number to aid in participation and commitment, and is intentionally designed for ministry in the church and all of life.

Goals of Equipping Class:
Calvary would be built up in…
•  Unity of the Faith
•  Knowledge of Christ
•  Spiritual Maturity
•  Love for God and Neighbor 
•  Spiritual Discernment

Equipping Classes are Designed to be:
•  Practical (Equipping for the Work of Ministry)
•  Biblical (Unity of the Faith)
•  Theological (Knowledge of the Son of God)
•  Challenging (Helping the Body Grow in Maturity)
•  Clear (Avoiding Deception of False Teaching)
•  Christ-Centered (Growing up into Christ)
•  Relational (Built up in the Love of God)
