Welcome to Worship Equippers for Christ, a missions ministry passionate about helping to equip all nations to know and worship the Triune God. To fulfill our mission we network with gifted teachers, sacred artists, artisans and ministry specialists to provide seminars, retreats, conferences, webinars and ministry intensives that are designed to help to equip churches, church planters and Christian ministries to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ through worship-centered evangelism and discipleship.
The missional mandate for our ministry comes from Ephesians 4:11-12; “He gave some to be apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, to the building up of the body of Christ”.
The Greek word for equipping carries with it the idea of making an exact adjustment which enables individual parts to work together; like a chiropractor setting a bone in place so that the body can fully function, or fishermen mending holes in their nets in order to catch and not lose fish. This process prepares the body of Christ to cultivate a worship centered lifestyle that prepares the way for evangelizing nations (ethnos - people groups) with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that "all the nations might come and worship before Him" (Ps 86:9)
ANCIENT-FUTURE WORSHIP SEMINARS feature teaching on the biblical dynamics of ancient Christian worship and how they equip Christians to evangelize their communities beginning with their family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers who missiologists tell us should comprise the primary mission field of every believer.
WORSHIP EQUIPPERS RETREATS are held in unique pastoral settings including sheep farms, sea port towns, vineyards, cathedrals, monasteries, and other venues to help make the Bible and Christian history "come alive" for this generation. If these venues are not available multimedia assisted teaching is used to help create ambience of these venues.
PRAISEVANGELISM WORKSHOPS help to equip individuals, families, home groups, church planters and worship teams with “easy to play” musical instruments to accompany the singing of "psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" which prepare the way for revival and spiritual awakening in their communities. We also provide teaching on the role of ethno-musicology in the evangelization of nations and offer a wide variety of "easy to play" musical instruments like those mentioned in the Psalms (harps, lyres, psalteries) and multiethnic instruments from around the world.
POIEMA SACRED ARTISTS RETREATS help to equip children, youth and adults to discover and develop their creative gifts (poiema is the Greek word found in Ephesians 2:10 that describes Christians as God's poem, workmanship or masterpiece - His divine work of art).
AMAGOH MEN’S RETREATS feature teaching from the life of King David and worship from the Psalms to help equip men for growth into manhood, sexual purity, leadership in marriage, family, the workplace and Church (AMAGOH - A Man After God’s Own Heart).
FAITH PILGRIMAGES is our travel ministry to the Holy Land which includes visits to top Biblical sites accompanied by life-transforming times of teaching, Davidic praise accompanied by the musical instruments of the Psalms, prayer for the nations, special worship celebrations, great fellowship over delicious Israeli meals, safe and comfortable travel by motor coach and first-class hotel accommodations.
We can also customize pilgrimages for your church or group to Greece and Italy to "Walk in the Footsteps of Paul", as well as to Ireland and Scotland to explore the history Celtic Christianity.
PRAISEQUAKE GATHERINGS help to prepare the way for revival and spiritual awakening in communities by bringing the Body of Christ together for times of praise, preaching, prayer and celebrations of the Lord's Table.
