Our Equipping Ministry is here to create learning experiences for you that will prepare people of all ages and experiences to make an impact for the Kingdom of God.
Here at NorthWood, every equipping experience is aligned within a pathway which ultimately leads to works of service, building up of the Body of Christ, unity in the faith, knowledge of the Son of God, and spiritual maturity.
Each equipping course is designed to help you gain insight and understanding in the areas of foundations, personal transformation, and leadership. You’ll find courses to help you learn and lead in spiritual formation, marriage and family ministry, financial management, pastoral care, glocal impact and more.
WEDNESDAY EQUIPPING CLASSES
This year, we’ve launched new Equipping Classes for adults. Since these classes coincide with T-Kids, Verge, and Unite, it’s a great opportunity for the whole family to find a place to plug in on Wednesday nights.

Starting Point | Free | One Day
If you are not already a member, we would love to welcome you to the NorthWood Family. Starting Point is the point where you say, “I’m ready to find out more about this church.” It’s the point where you decide, “This could be the place my family is ready to plug into.” It’s the point where you discover that you are ready to get started on a whole new adventure with Jesus Christ. As our guest at this free Sunday lunch, you’ll meet Pastor Bob Roberts and the church staff, learn more about how we can help you grow and serve, and ask any questions you might have. Pastor Bob will lead a short introductory course about our church and at the conclusion, you will have completed all the prerequisites to becoming a NorthWood member. The next step is up to you, but we hope you decide to become a part of the NorthWood Family! You can sign up for the next Starting Point on the upcoming events page, at the Information Center in the lobby or at Guest Reception.
T-Life Class | Free | 4 Weeks
“T-Life” is a term you’ll hear a lot around NorthWood Church. T-Life is shorthand for Transformed Life. You see, from the time Jesus comes into your life, the Holy Spirit continues to transform your life — the way you think, act and relate to others. We are offering a six-week class on Sundays that will again visit the foundational ways in which NorthWood uses T-Life as our discipleship model. Starting Point is a prerequisite to this class.
Precepts Bible Study
Precept Ministries International was raised up by God for the sole purpose of establishing people in God’s Word to produce reverence for Him. Precepts Bible studies establish people in God’s Word using inductive Bible study methods. Inductive means we use the Bible as the primary source of study to learn about God and what the Bible teaches. Precept studies are designed to equip you with inductive study tools so you can discover truth of God’s Word for yourself. A highly-trained teacher will lead you through a book of the Bible with a video series and small group interaction. If you’re looking for a deep, interactive Bible study group, we offer a Precepts study several times each year. Check the events page for dates and times, or email Precepts@NorthWoodChurch.org.
Women’s Bible Study | $35 | Full Semester
This Women’s Bible Study provides a great opportunity to learn more about the Bible, develop a deeper relationship with the Lord, and get to know other Christian women. In addition to the teaching, women spend time in small groups discussing the Bible and encouraging each other to live out what they learn. The relationships built through these small groups have been life-changing, and the deeper relationship with Jesus is priceless. Ladies Bible Study meets every Tuesday morning in the fall and spring in the Plex from 9:15-11:30am. Childcare is provided. For more information, email Gloria Moloney.
