Mondays 4-6pm, starting March 11
Serving Jesus effectively requires character, conviction, and competence. Equip is our weekly training sessions designed to help us grow in all three.
This semester you can choose from a range of training electives and wrestle with exploring how we can get better at sharing the gospel of Jesus with our own friends in Common Hour, and enjoy dinner with other Christian students from all over campus.
4pm Electives (meet in the Arts Courtyard, 6 August)
Choose from a range of courses designed to equip you to serve Jesus more effectively (see the back of this sheet). If you haven’t done Sharing the Gospel or Uncover, then start with one of them.
If you want to do an elective but can’t make Mondays 4pm, then let us know via the form below (hey that rhymes!) and we’ll try to find another time that will work for you.

5pm Common Hour (Arts Lecture Room 5)
Common Hour is a seminar-style session (think something like Mid Year Conference seminars). This semester we’re going to be exploring how we can get better at sharing the gospel of Jesus with our own friends.
We work together to provide dinner for each other over the semester. For $40 for the semester you’ll get dinner after every Equip session to help sustain you for the trip home.
