"Our natural human perception can at best only lead us to the doorway of understanding and never through it." - Jack Hayford
Welcome to Gateway Equip
Every Gateway Equip class is designed to help you hear from God. As you hear from God, He’ll help you grow in your spiritual life and become “unstuck” in your spiritual progress. Setting aside a few nights to attend a Gateway Equip class will offer you more than inspiring worship or well-grounded, biblically based teaching—you’re going to encounter the voice of God and experience lasting change.
Our desire is that your experience in these classes will be a catalyst for spiritual growth in your daily life. Check out the information for each class, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Why Attend a Gateway Equip Class
Hearing the voice of God is the most critical aspect in growing spiritually. Gateway Equip fosters an environment that enables you to hear His voice. All of our classes, regardless of topic, are designed to be revelational—not for you to hear new information, but rather that you hear from God. As you hear from God, He’ll help you grow in your spiritual life and become “unstuck” in your spiritual progress. Setting aside a few nights to attend a Gateway Equip class will offer you more than inspiring worship or well-grounded, biblically based teaching—you’re going to encounter the voice of God; and that will introduce you to whole new level of transformation.
How to Choose a Class
Since we offer dozens of classes from which you can choose, many people find it challenging to decide which classes they should take. Here is our recommended approach:
- Determine your available schedule. We offer three convenient sessions of Gateway Equip during each semester. Each session has a series of classes intended to positively impact your spiritual growth. If you can, we encourage you to attend multiple classes.
- Review the available classes. While some of our classes may repeat from one session to the next, most Equip classes will be held only once during the semester.
- Decide which class or classes match your spiritual need. Ask the Lord to show you where you need to grow and which classes would best meet a need in your spiritual growth.
