RH Equip

Redemption Hill Church exists to cultivate Gospel-Centered, Grace-Driven, and Mission-Minded people; and one aspect of cultivating disciples involves the particular ministry of equipping (Ephesians 4:11-12, Hebrews 13:20-21). RH Equip is a series of interactive courses intended to help anyone at Redemption Hill Church apply gospel riches to their own lives, and to help others do the same. We have developed a number of courses that include content and practices fundamental to being a faithful and fruitful disciple, as well as classes that address particular needs as they arise. Currently all of our classes are through Zoom, and links will sent prior to each session..

What People are Saying

Everyday Church
I was inspired to keep deepening my relationships with non-Christian friends and also to remember that the pressure is not entirely on me to “convert” someone but to be able to listen to their story well while sharing with them parts of mine and articulating how Jesus fits into that. – Jane

Sharing your story is vital and not something that we typically do with people we do not know all that well. It helped with increasing vulnerability and taking some of the intimidation factor out of sharing some of the more vulnerable parts of life. It made me think that I could do that again (and will!) – Casey

The biggest part for me has been identifying how to draw out people’s functional idols with attentive questions. Also, this was a space where people could open up and talk freely about their lives and how the Gospel applied to them. – James

Sovereignty & Salvation
Coming into this class, I had been wrestling with fear & doubt and a lack of joy and confidence. My prayer was that by the end of the class, God would use these truths to encourage my heart and bring about joy. I learned in small pieces about each of the doctrines, but seeing the big picture and how they all fit together in and throughout Scripture was really impactful for me. Praise God that my salvation has nothing to do with ME. I feel relief & peace, knowing that God is the one who chose me, rescued me, and keeps me. – Cait

This course helped me to treasure God’s mercy in a deeper way as I meditated more on my sin and on the riches of His grace! Thank you so much for all that was put into this! – Susanna

I left this class feeling immense comfort that God specifically chose me. I recognize God as bigger and more sovereign than I did before. – Cody

Gospel Transformation
Each of the lessons were so rich, that I thought we could have gone multiple weeks on each. Chris: the Lord worked through you in remarkable ways to synthesize key themes. Thank you for your preparation and sacrifice to lead us through this very valuable text, filled with such life-altering theology. – Gary

Being able to visualize the chart was so helpful. It gives me visual direction, and I’ve found I make it to the CROSS quicker and intentionally am striving with God’s help to bear fruit instead of thorns. – Kathleen

For the first time being a Christian, I am learning how to deal with my emotions biblically without just :”praying about it” or “reading the bible” trying to fix my behavior but not addressing the real issue. – Marcus

My friend asked if I would partner with her to take this course, I reluctantly agreed – to come to ONE class. LOL! God has such a sense of humor – having used my fear of man (not wanting to disappoint my sweet friend) to get me right where He wanted me to be. This study was SO timely and an absolute LIFE CHANGER. I would highly recommend both this study and the book When People are Big and God is Small to every single person in the church body because it is NEEDED by ALL. – Jo
