Equip Paths

Equip

What are Equip Paths?
Over the years, we’ve heard from many people who became overwhelmed when they try to select an Equip class. They’re not sure where to begin, or what class to take next. Equip Paths help you identify next steps.
 
An Equip Path will help you think long-term about your spiritual growth. When you choose a Path, you’re choosing to engage over several classes rather than just one. Each Path has eight classes; six have already been identified as important topics for spiritual growth. You’ll also be able to choose two elective classes that emphasize a specific aspect of the Christian life.
 
You have four Equip Paths from which to choose:
  • Believe Path
  • Belong Path
  • Become Path
  • Build Path.
Each Path will help you experience most of the Tracks in Equip like Freedom and Stewardship. The Paths will help you connect to Gateway church and other believers, but most importantly, you’ll be able to engage over the long haul in growing close to God! 
 
Why Choose an Equip Path?
You don’t have to choose a Path to take a class in Equip. But, if you would like guidance and direction in knowing what classes to take, then Equip Paths are built for you. Each Path offers a strategic and effective way to grow spiritually.

Using a Biblically-based discipleship model, you can expect the Paths to help you hear God’s voice more clearly, understand the Bible more easily, and share your faith with confidence and peace. Each person who completes an Equip Path will receive a certificate recognizing their commitment to spiritual growth.
