Equipping For Ministry (2019)

The Equipping For Ministry (EFM) Program is an intentional mentoring & discipleship program which aims to equip followers of Christ

  • in a foundational study of God’s word
  • in personal & group ministry & leadership skills

so that each person may be complete in Christ (Col 1:28) and may be equipped for the work of service to the building up of the body of Christ (Eph 4:12)

The program is designed as a small group engagement anchored on the foundational 3-book series based on the 2:7 series from the Navigators. It will include personal and group leadership and ministry skills to build and equip individuals who are committed and passionate to grow in their Christian character and love and influence for Christ.

We will meet weekly as a small group and will interact through opportunities for practical sessions and times of ministry and application of skills learned.

It is a one-year commitment for those who are involved and would require disciplined study and engagement from each person.

The following topics would be covered:

13-week study based on Book # 1 Growing Strong in God’s Family
Book #1 concentrates on the development of a daily devotional life that is meaningful, enjoyable and valuable.

It will also focus on foundational truths from the Bible for the Christian to grow to maturity in Christ such as the important truths about God, Jesus Christ, the work of Christ and the Holy Spirit.

A strong emphasis is placed on internalizing God’s word through memorising scripture and keeping to a daily discipline of reading God’s word and having a daily quiet time.
13 week study based on Book #2 Deepening Your Roots in God’s Family.
Book #2 concentrates on deepening the disciple’s walk in Christ and focuses on how to mature in Christ, the Christian’s spiritual warfare, Faith and the truths of God, knowing God’s will and walking as a servant.

Practical skills include learning to engage in relational evangelism, learning to prepare and effectively share our personal testimony and spending an extended time in prayer.
13 week study based on Book #3 Bearing Fruit in God’s Family
Book #3 focuses on the development of Christ like Christian character and looks at the call to fruitful living, love in action, our purity of life, having integrity in living and our character in action.

Practical skills include learning how to set godly priorities, learning and practicing how to share your faith and the gospel effectively using the bridge illustration.

Building on these foundational skills through the 2:7 series, other important building blocks for Christian maturity and ministry include sessions on:

  • How to understand and apply the Word of God into our lives
  • How to prepare and deliver Spirit empowered sermons
  • How to engage in the sacred reading of scriptures
  • How to effectively lead small groups
  • How to minister to those in need and pray for healing and deliverance
  • How to be an effective steward of God’s resources

Jesus has called us:

  • to follow Him (Matthew 4:19; Luke 9:23),
  • to walk in Him (Gal 2:20; Gal 5:16, Col 2:6),
  • to discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness (1 Tim 4:7),
  • to grow to maturity in Christ (Heb 6:1; Phi 3:14),
  • to be complete in Him (Col 1:28) and
  • to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 20:19)

Philippians 2:12-13
So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
So let us work out our salvation with His divine enablement and to present ourselves to God as those alive from the dead and our members as instruments of righteousness to God (Romans 6:13)

The EFM program begins on Sunday 3 March from 12.30 – 2pm.
