Equip

Equip is the EU's training program, with courses in different ministry skills and Christian understanding. Equip is one of our main three activities that all EUers are invited to be a part of, as we seek to equip students with the skills they need to serve in the EU, their churches and beyond, and to set them up for a lifetime of service!

About The Courses

JESUS CENTRED CONVERSATIONS (JCC)

This course is for you if you haven't done any course before! It equips you in your personal evangelism with friends and strangers on and off campus.

The aim of the Jesus Centred Conversations course is to help you to:
(a) grow in your knowledge of and passion for the gospel of Jesus,
(b) gain a framework for leading conversations towards Jesus,
(c) be more eager to share the gospel with others, and
(d) remove some of the blockages in your conversations with others.

Through the training and sharing and reflecting on the previous week's conversations, you will grow in your knowledge of Jesus, and also in your love for the lost.

 

WORKING IN GOD'S WORLD (WGW) - SEMESTER 2

This course is for all those who are preparing for life in the workforce. It is designed to help students work out what to think (and do) about work as you start out in this new chapter of your life. By providing a biblical perspective on working after university, WGW focuses on glorifying God through your work.

While the particular emphasis of WGW is for graduating students, you may also like to do this course as you start on an internship or if you spend a lot of your time in the workforce.

Are you in your last year of uni? This is the course recommended for you!

 

CROSS-CULTURES (XC)

Jesus' great commission in Matthew 28 is to "Go and make disciples of every nation". We're very fortunate at the University of Sydney, and throughout Australia, because the nations have come to us. With international students and people of all cultures at our doorstep, every day is filled with amazing cross-cultural experiences and opportunities to share the Gospel. This course will inspire you to share Jesus with people across cultures, and equip you to do so in the best possible way. The Cross-Cultures course will also help give you confidence, and provides opportunities to serve in euFOCUS and other cross-cultural ministries. In our increasingly multicultural world, this course will help you learn to share Jesus with people across cultures, and to equip you to do so effectively.

 

CHANGING THE WORLD THROUGH 1-2-1 MINISTRY

Changing the World Through 1-2-1 Ministry aims to empower and equip students to take the initiative with another individual to help them know Christ better and obey him more fully through reading the Bible together. This course will equip EUers for a lifetime of one-on-one relationships. Great for assistant and senior small group leaders, senior students and youth group leaders. This course *ALSO* provides training for reading Uncover Mark's Gospel with friends who are not Christians.

 

 

ETHICS - SEMESTER 1

This course engages with the rich and significant questions of how Christians lovingly live in the world today, serving the Lord Jesus in the context of the complex opportunities and challenges our society faces. This is a 8 week course.
 

 

MAKING LIFE DECISIONS

We all want to make good decisions. However many of us are not even sure about the direction of our lives, let alone how to make decisions to get there. This course will help you see where God is taking history, and whether your life is aligned with his trajectory. We will look at how decisions we make now relate to seeing God's kingdom grow, particularly amongst the less reached and the less resourced.
