It’s not just an event; it’s what we do.


The Equip Conference is designed to encourage, empower, and resource pastors and volunteer leaders to fulfill their purpose within the local church, developing a network of quality Christian leaders and healthy faith communities.

The Equip Conference offers dynamic main session speakers, powerful worship experiences, multiple breakout sessions, and opportunities for networking among volunteers, pastors, and ministry leaders from all over Minnesota.

ASL interpretation is provided for District Council & Equip main sessions.

We will be following state guidelines for church gatherings as it relates to food, social distancing, and masks. The size of the venue enables us to safely distance and sanitization measures are already in place. For those who are high-risk, uncomfortable attending in-person, or feeling sick and experiencing symptoms, we will be live-streaming all of our main sessions in the sanctuary on our Facebook page for you to enjoy from home.
