Equipping for Ministry Network

The Learning Resource CenterEquipping People for Ministry in the 21st Century

The Equipping for Ministry Network provides opportunities for churches and individuals to work together. It provides resources for growth and nurture of people in ministry.  The library of resources may be accessed and checked out by churches or individual members. 

A coordinating team from the network churches meet together to oversee the resources available through the Learning Resource Center at Southminster (LRCs).
