Mission Agency:FEB CENTRAL CHURCH PLANTER – EQUIP CHURCH
After moving to Peterborough a little over a year ago without a core group, we now have a growing core group of 30 adults and 30 kids representing at least 5 languages with our people coming from various ages, stages, countries, cultures and even religions (Christian now!). Shannon and his family are planting a new church in Peterborough. It is called Equip Church. Shannon is the Lead/founding pastor. Their mission is “Leading Hearts Toward Jesus”. We train our people that our church is a church planting church; gospel centered, Bible believing, teaching, opening kind of church. It is also a “messy” church in the sense that none of us “have It all together” and that its “okay to not be okay”. We have discussions, we share testimonies, we eat weekly meals together, we have events in each others homes, or in parks. We try to live together where we can be real and honest while keeping Jesus at the centre, and inviting all other so come and see the Jesus that we have met and been changed by, for themselves as well. We meet on Saturday evenings. We have a pot luck dinner every week after the service. We have a kids program and have run few youth events that have been well attended.
