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.

EQUIP: Elective Classes

The EQUIP Elective Classes are based on felt needs of those who attend Austin Ridge. These courses range from marriage, parenting, finances, and how to integrate faith as work.

all classes are at Bee Cave unless otherwise specified

Finishing Well
Wednesdays, Sept 22-Oct 13;
6:30pm | Cafe
Cost: $25

Of the 100 leaders most discussed in Scripture, only 25% of them finish well. We do not want that to be true of us, so we have designed a four session class with two basic goals: to expand your vision of what finishing well might look like, and to help you effectively engage at the Ridge and in the community. (Attendees are generally 50 years and older.)

Missions: MomentumYES
Wednesdays, Sep 8 - Oct 13
6:30pm | Conference Room
Cost: $35

We want to mobilize anyone who calls Austin Ridge their home in the city and around the world. Oftentimes, we think - “go and make disciples” is for other people. But, if we consider ourselves Christ Followers - it means us! Therefore, join us this fall for a 6 week course called, MomentumYES. MomentumYes invites God’s Plan A, the Church, to rethink God’s mission, the call of the church, and their individual roles in reaching people and making disciples. This is great for individuals, couples, friend groups and/or Life Groups!

Parenting Teens
Southwest: Sundays, Oct 31 -
Nov 14; 11am | B-114

free class

Parenting is not for the faint of heart, especially when it comes to parenting teens. Things change as your kids get older and learn to be their own person, which is a good thing. It also means you have to change how you parent them. When you add in the influences of the culture and social media…it’s a challenge. Come join us as we learn and discuss how to best parent our teenagers.
