EQUIP exists to provide you practical tools for your faith. We believe that right actions flow from right belief, so we have designed these classes to provide you with the tools and resources you need to continue growing in all areas of your walk with Jesus. All of our classes are taught by Austin Ridge staff or trained volunteers.
