EQUIP 2018

The EQUIP Youth Workers Conference seeks to encourage, train, and inspire Salvation Army youth leaders to helpfully serve their corps, communities, families and God; to disciple effectively within their ministries and through their relationships with others; and to love inclusively within an atmosphere that promotes wholeness, Christian maturity, service to others.
This conference recognizes the hand of God in all that we do and in order to fulfill this mission, The Salvation Army Youth Workers Conference operates within three main concepts: to inspire, to encourage, and to train. EQUIP is about providing support, encouragement, and training to those who work with youth within our camps, corps, community centers, and Kroc Centers and Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs.
