Equipped for Life

Guiding Young People from Evangelization to Christian Maturity

Don’t know where to begin? Start with Equipped for Life, your roadmap for guiding young Catholics on their faith journey. This new 4-year program, included in your subscription to EQAccess™, is designed to be used over the course of a young person’s high school career, moving them from an initial encounter with Christ to an adult understanding of faith, and laying the foundation for a life-long relationship with God.

Year 1: Encounter
An introduction to the Christian life, this section is evangelistic in nature, taking young people from skepticism and doubt to a personal profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
Year 2: Discipleship
Developing the foundational habits of Christian life, from the establishment of personal prayer time to the teachings of the Church, to worship and community (Acts 2: 42).
Year 3: Mission
Becoming an ambassador for Christ. Taking up the ministry of the Church to reconcile all things in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20) and to serve the marginalized (Matthew 25: 31-46).
Year 4: Beyond
Moving deeper into the Christian mystery to take on the mind of Christ (Romans 12: 2). Building the skill and practice of Christian discernment and introducing the lives of the Saints as a guide for full maturity in Christ.
