EQUIPPING                        
Ephesians 4:11-16
  •  Christ will continue to raise up gifted leaders for the body.
  •  The purpose of these leaders is for the equipping of the Body.
  •  The purpose of the equipping is for the members to do the ministry.
  •  The effect on the Body is the building up of itself.
Barriers to becoming an equipping church:
  •  A focus on doing the ministry rather than equipping for ministry.
  •  The failure to overcome people's ignorance or fear.
  •  The failure to equip them with the right gear.
  •  The lack of a clear process of how to get there.
  •  The inability to sustain momentum

  • You cannot define life change as one part of the cycle.  You must equip and celebrate life change at every level.
  • You cannot communicate with people according to where you think they should be in the cycle but according to where they are.  Know where they are and communicate in terms they understand.
  • You cannot assume life change based strictly on gifts and abilities.  Everyone must experience the true progression of life change.
  • You cannot assume people know how to change on their own.  There must be a clear process for them to follow at every stage.
  • Sustained service comes from identity, not compulsion.  It is not enough to call people to service.  For us to live our mission the people must embrace the identity of a service.
  • You can't call people to life change if you are not personally experiencing it.
