ABOUT LIFEEQUIP – WHY WE EXIST

LifeEquip’s mission is to impact local communities with the gospel by increasing the effectiveness of the local church.

Jesus said the greatest two commandments are to love God and love others. Paul informs us that without love, nothing else matters. LifeEquip exists to inculcate the leadership of love into the culture and fabric of local church and Christian organizations life.

LifeEquip aspires to encourage pastors and Christian leaders and to advance the Church of Jesus Christ by assisting churches and Christian organizations to achieve C4 (increasing competence, credibility, clarity, and creativity) and enjoyment through the inculcation of Biblical love and servant leadership throughout their organization.

We come along side each pastor and church to assess the needs and develop a unique and individualized plan to increase servant leadership. LifeEquip helps instill a culture that is defined by biblical love. We also work with each organization, helping them implement the processes needed to gain improvements in each area of the organization.

“Leaders & pastors, I’ve been there.
I want to create a safe space for your leadership growth…
from starting out, to transition, to burnout, to sustaining success.
I want to share what I’ve learned, I’m here to serve you.”
Glenn C. Stewart, Pastor & Church Coach
