The “Equip” Conference aims to equip pastors and church leaders in the most rural or neglected villages and small towns of under-developed countries to provide those leaders, who do not already have ready access to training materials and instruction, with both materials and instruction to assist in ministry within the local church.
In many ways I had achieved significant successes in the ministry. Yet years earlier, I had begun to make mistakes that will now haunt me for the rest of my life. . . . I never thought it would be me. Who among us does? I was so sure that I would not succumb to moral temptation, and that I had very little sympathy for fallen preachers. I shunned them as many have shunned me. . . .One day a lady in our church, whom I had led to the Lord, said something to me in a counseling situation that should have set off all kinds of alarms, sirens, and warning signs. Instead [I believed] I could handle anything and everything (John K. Hutcheson, Sr).
