Equipping The Saints is a world-wide discipleship training program. Each lesson is designed for one-on-one disciplemaking or for small groups. If groups meet weekly the program is completed in under eighteen months.

Classes are broken into smaller accountability groups to ensure application of truths being learned. Covering all the major doctrines of the Bible, and practical areas such as money and time management, as well as leadership skills and building Christian character, the courses are aimed at training participants to help fulfill Christ's Great Commission to "... go and make disciples of all the nations... "
