Equip Tour

Equip tour is a one-evening conference (for young and old alike) that will impart perspective, resources and skills on the area of personal-outreach, supporting your church’s vision to see all members mobilised as everyday conversational witnesses.

Proposed dates, and the evening programme, are below

Let’s change our world – one conversation at a time!

A mission:

Thinking leads to behaviour, and behaviour produces results. Our suggestion is that new thinking is needed regarding outreach. This applies at an individual, local church and national level – and that is what the ‘Equip Tour’ exists to communicate about.   

Even better – we’re doing the travelling for you, so you don’t have to.

Please utilise our efforts, to connect with ideas and strategies that came into existence through journeying with hundreds of NZ pastors over the past few years.

Our hope is that each evening would be hosted by at least 3 local churches (though 2 is fine in a smaller town) who invite their key leaders and members – as well as their youth and youth leaders. We hope for a minimum of 15 attending (though  pray for more).

  • To confirming a date: Draft dates for some places are on this webpage. To begin discussions – let us know you are interested.
  • Cost: $10 per adult and $5 per youth/retire toward expenses
  • (We come to you, with 2 speakers in most places, a great programme and many free resources)

We pray many thousands of church members will come so they and their churches can be blessed!
