Day of Equipping – Newark, OH: February 5, 2021

God is equipping His Church to live more fully into the powerful Mission of Jesus Christ, and He invited you to be a part of it! Jesus tells us in John 14:12: “He who believes in Me will do the things that I have done…” That is quite a bold statement! Think about that for a minute. What did Jesus do?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church says it this way: “By Confirmation Christians, that is, those who are anointed, share more completely in the mission of Jesus Christ and the fullness of the Holy Spirit with which he is filled…” (CCC 1294)

Jesus invited each of us into His mission. Come be equipped to live more fully into all that Christ has purchased.

This training, presented by Bart Schuchts, is designed to equip and prepare you to live more fully into the mission of Christ.

During this dynamic training, you will be inspired to live into God’s Kingdom purpose, encounter the Father’s love, be empowered to live more fully into confirmational graces, learn to hear His Voice, and learn to pray for physical healing.

Teaching will be augmented by interactive exercises throughout the day.

Come be equipped so that His will be done… on earth as it is in heaven.
