Equip: Practical Training for Women in Ministry


SL-008-2015 Equip- Practical Training for Women in Ministry

While the classroom is full of practical training for ministry, Equip is intended to focus that training specifically for women’s ministry. The purpose of Equip is to take theological training and apply it to real-life situations women will face in ministry.

Each semester an Equip seminar is offered to the ladies of Southern. These mini-conferences are led by faculty wives or guest speakers who will share from their own experience and wisdom. Speakers at Equip provide practical tips, share personal experiences, and help prepare women to apply their theological education to everyday ministry.

Equip is intended primarily for female students, and is open to all females on campus.


Supporters, Senders, and the Sent: The Importance of Women in Missions and Evangelism

Every woman will be impacted by evangelism or missions in one way or another. Maybe it was an evangelistic heart of a believer who told you about the Gospel? Maybe a close friend or family member serves as an international missionary? Or maybe even you hope to be a missionary one day? Whatever the case may be, God has commissioned believers to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything [He has] commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).

Join us on Saturday, March 2, from 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM in Heritage Hall to hear from Dr. Lisa LaGeorge as she speaks on the priority of evangelism, short-term missions, caring for missionaries through the local church, and lessons from faithful missionary women.

Equip is free and lunch will be provided, but registration closes February 22nd.



Registration for Equip closes on February 22, 2019.

Dr. Lisa LaGeorge serves as the Director of CHF Academy at Children’s Hunger Fund in Sylmar, CA. CHF’s mission is to deliver hope to suffering children by equipping local churches for gospel-centered mercy ministry. Lisa serves by administering CHF’s Vision Trips and by walking with fellow staff members in personal and professional development.

For the past 20 years, she taught and served in various roles in Student Development in Higher Christian Education. During those years, Lisa taught two dozen different courses in missions, Teaching ESL, and church history, and global studies. She also administered and trained more than 100 student-led cross-cultural vocational mission trips. Two decades of working with undergraduates was an immense joy, challenge, privilege, and delight.

Prior to her tenure in Higher Ed, Lisa spent five years involved in cross-cultural youth missions in Alaska, a state that still holds an enormous piece of her heart.
Lisa loves to teach the Bible within the local church and for women’s events around the world. She has traveled in over 50 countries to encourage cross-cultural workers, provide teacher training workshops, and supervise student teachers. Her research and writing include the topics of short-term missions, cross-cultural teaching methodologies, missionary biographies, and Third Culture Kid transitions.

Lisa serves on the board of The Elisha Foundation that provides retreats, respite training, and outreach with churches into communities of disability. One of the highlights of her life was trekking with The Elisha Foundation to Mt. Everest Base Camp.

Lisa is rarely without a book, loves to cook for global gatherings, and hikes and camps and paddles if there is any time left. Lisa is single (at least at the moment of writing—she’s always open to introductions), but thanks God for the gift of a godly family and friends who are like family.
