Welcome to Worship Equippers for Christ, a missions ministry passionate about helping to equip a new generation of Great Commission Worshipers to make disciples of all nations. To fulfill our mission we network with gifted teachers, sacred artists, artisans and ministry specialists to provide worship celebrations, seminars, retreats, workshops, webinars and resources that help to equip individuals, families, churches, church planters, schools and Christian organizations for worship and the work of the ministry.
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 so that they can catch (and not lose) fish. This equipping process prepares the body of Christ to cultivate a lifestyle of daily worship that prepares the way for the evangelizing of nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
ANCIENT-FUTURE WORSHIP SEMINARS explore the history and biblical paradigms for ancient Christian worship to help equip Christ-followers cultivate a daily lifestyle of worship expressed by love for God and neighbor that builds 21st century Christian communities
TIME WITH THE SHEPHERD RETREATS explore the dynamics of shepherding sheep to help equip believers to provide pastoral care for their family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
PRAISEVANGELISM WORKSHOPS equip individuals, families, churches, home groups, church planters and praise teams with “easy to play” musical instruments (harps, lyres, psalteries and multiethnic instruments from around the world) to accompany the singing of "psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" that prepare the way for revival and spiritual awakening in communities.
POIEMA SACRED ARTISTS RETREATS help equip believers as God's divine "work of art" (poiema is the Greek word for poem or workmanship, see Ephesians 2:10) to discover and develop their creative gifts to help make the Bible and Christian Faith "come alive" for this generation. Members of our sacred artists network include mentoring artists like Aleona Isakova, creator of the Beauty By God Collection, who is inviting a new generation of Christian fashion designers to help bring the Kingdom of God alive for the nations through an International Fashion Competition whose winners will display their award winning works in the Washington D.C. Fashion in 2018.
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 and leadership in marriage, the family, workplace and Church (AMAGOH - A Man After God’s Own Heart)
FAITH PILGRIMAGES is our travel ministry to the Holy Land which features visits to top Biblical sites accompanied by life transforming times of teaching, Davidic praise, prayer, worship celebrations, great fellowship over delicious Mediterranean meals and first-class hotel accommodations (please go to our Faith Pilgrimages page to download a brochure and registration information for our next pilgrimage scheduled for January 22-February 1, 2018)
WORSHIP GOD AMERICA events help to prepare the way for revival and spiritual awakening in our "nation of nations" by bringing the Body of Christ together for life-transfiguring times of worship that lead to societal transformation. Events that we are helping to promote for this Fall include Awaken the Dawn, on the National Mall, October 6-9, and the Lord's Table Gathering, a gathering of Christian leaders and the Body of Christ around the Lord’s Table for the purpose of repentance, reconciliation, and praying for revival and spiritual awakening in the United States of America, Saturday, October 21, 2017 (2pm - 4pm) on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
