How to Join EQUIP


EQUIP partners with churches and para-church organizations that provide opportunities for students to participate in intentional, intensive training and internships, in order for them to gain significant ministry experience and mentorship from qualified supervisors. Depending on the requirements and length of the internship, students can earn up to 12 credit hours through their field ministry at their EQUIP church towards a degree program.

In addition to field ministry credit hours, some participants have been approved to be field instructors of a certain number of our EQUIP practicums, based on its leader's qualifications and field of expertise. The practicum course options are predetermined by the EQUIP office. All practicums are offered every semester for approved and qualified EQUIP locations. Students may earn up to 9 more hours of academic credit through these practicum courses.

Qualified EQUIP leaders are individuals who have at least a Masters of Divinity and 5 years of experience in ministry. All EQUIP leaders may offer the Field Ministry courses. In addition, EQUIP leaders who hold a post-M.Div. degree may offer the other practicum courses.
