Blogging to Equip.

Posted: October 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

I created this blog to help to “equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” leading to the name “equipology.” Believing that Scripture is the only thing that can truly “equip” us and “that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:17).” My hope is that this blog will help us look at contemporary issues and wrestle through how to handle them biblically.

Many sites and blogs do this and do it well. But the focus here is particularly to be a resource to equip the believers God has entrusted me with at Oak Grove Baptist Church in Spartanburg, SC. My wife encouraged me to do this a while back, citing  John Piper’s ministry’s blog (he’s from Greenville, SC by the way).  I’ve done it when serving as a missionary to better inform and interact with our prayer partners.  Starting now well help me I pray in an organized and digital method to better equip the saints in a way that has not been as effective in the past via mass emails or facebook notes.  My goal is not to have anything fancy or get a bunch of hits but again to help me equip believers and interact with them via web.  So enjoy and I hope to hear some feedback, especially from our Oak Grovers!
