At Pinelake Church, we believe one of the primary places for a disciple to be shaped and formed is within the context of the local church. We desire to see everyone “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Pet. 3:18), and we foster this kind of transformation through accessible learning environments designed to deepen people’s understanding of God’s story in Scripture and the essential beliefs of Christianity.
Because of this desire, we created Pinelake Equip to provide small-group theological training for the Pinelake Church family and our ministry leaders. Each eight-week Equip course will lead to spiritual growth, leadership development, and instruction from leading experts in the theological disciplines.
