What is Equip?
Equip is the training and consulting arm of Women of Hope International. Over years of experience working in the developing world, we saw a need for a training curriculum designed to better incorporate people with disabilities into the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 16-20) and invite them into the Body of Christ. We walk alongside churches, ministries, and groups who work in the developing world and want to better prepare their leaders to embrace Jesus’ approach to disability, and learn how to incorporate people with disabilities into their communities and churches.
Who is Equip?
Equip is made up of 7 trained ambassadors, including the Women of Hope International staff. When a ministry contacts us with a request for training, we prepare 2 of our ambassadors to travel to the requested location, bringing training supplies.
How can I request an Equip training for my ministry?
Simply email Women of Hope International at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to have a more detailed discussion about your ministry, your goals, and how we can partner.
Who does Equip train and how?
We train any ministry or group who desires God’s heart for people with disabilities working in the developing world. Our ambassadors are English-speakers who train other English-speakers, who then have the tools to train others. Our curriculum is called Theology of Disability and is designed for oral cultures and learners who may or may not have received high levels of education.
Can I use this training curriculum?
Yes! We are pleased to offer our Theology of Disability curriculum for a small fee to ministries of all sizes. We ask that any ministry wanting to use this curriculum would be willing to give us the assessment data that they collect so we can further study the impact this training has on groups around the world. Contact us regarding the curriculum and fee.
The 1000 by 10 campaign is a goal for Equip to reach 1000 ministry leaders with Christ-centered disability training by our 10th anniversary in June of 2019! We know that this is a large goal, but through Christ all things are possible! Donate here to become an Equipping Partner and help our ambassador team provide more trainings around the world.
