Vineyard Church of Hopkinton Equipping

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God.

Introducing e411!

Life as a follower of Jesus is a life-long adventure and journey of growth.  Here at the Vineyard we strive to have a culture where everyone plays.   The church should function like a great team - where no one sits on the bench.  Everyone has an important role to play in the church and in being good news to the community.

The name e411 is taken from Paul's Letter to the Ephesians in the Bible.  In Ephesians 4:11-12 Paul encourages the Jesus followers in the city to be equipped for being good news (ministry) to others and to grow in knowledge and faith.

e411 is a new ministry here at the Vineyard Church of Hopkinton that is focused on equipping followers of Jesus to be life-long learners and disciples of Jesus.  We'll be rolling out new growth opportunities over the next few months.

Knowledge is more than facts

One of the underlying principles at e411 is that knowledge is more than facts.   Knowing about Jesus is very different from knowing Jesus. e411 classes and opportunities do include facts about Jesus and the Bible, but our emphasis is about knowledge that is practical in a real-life world.

e411 Classes

Here's a list of some of the e411 classes we've done here at the Vineyard.  There are new classes starting all the time, so stay tuned for current offerings.   We'll be integrating a broad range of training and equipping opportunities over the next few months as we look be equipped for the work of ministry.
