    EQUIP is our new name for Leader Connect.  

    We will begin on April 26 with an evening of celebration and vision for the future.  Each morning there will be the main session that invites into what a fresh move of God in our churches may look like with speakers who are living it out in their context.  On April 27 there will be afternoon workshops and the CCOGM AGM will take place that evening.  All main sessions, the evening events and at least one of the workshops will be offered online to registered delegates.  The evening session will also be available for viewing only for the entire CCOGM family.

    It is exciting to gather as the CCOGM family.  We encourage everyone to join us on April 26 at 7:00pm (Grace Point Church) to hear from our Executive Director, Rev. George Lutzer as he shares a vision for what God is calling our network of churches to.







    Join us, in person or online, on April 26, 7:00 pm (MST) for EQUIP 2022 evening service. No registration needed.

    We are better together, join in to celebrate how God is at work in the CCOGM family & to hear our vision moving into the future.
