EQUIP

EQUIP is a hybrid process to complete the specialization in Youth and Young Adult Ministry.  It consists of a weekend retreat and six sessions, offered in different locations across the Diocese of Sacramento. Each session is based on online learning and a guided group reflection where those living the process gather and learn together.
