EQUIP sessions to address multigenerational men’s ministry, victory over sexual sins

HOUSTON—The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention’s EQUIP Conference on August 12 at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston will feature 60 speakers offering 240 sessions geared to train lay leaders, church volunteers and staffs in a variety of ministry areas, including men’s ministry.

EQUIP is the convention’s annual major training event for churches, said Lance Crowell, SBTC church ministries associate.

Three speakers—Josh Proctor, Denny Autry, and Eric Reed—will address issues relevant to men’s ministry through breakout sessions that include engaging multigenerational groups of men, reaching men in today’s culture, building a men’s ministry and helping men overcome the loss of spiritual passion. Three sessions will address pornography and sexual addiction and include an overview of CRAVE, the SBTC’s new online 30-day program for helping men gain victory over sexual sin.

“CRAVE is a 30-day spiritual detox for men caught in pornography,” Crowell said, adding that the resource is scheduled to go online in August. For additional information on CRAVE, see sbtexas.com/crave.

The EQUIP conference runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration before Aug. 7 is $10 and includes lunch. Registration after Aug. 7 is $15, with lunch based on availability depending upon the number of walk-up registrations.
