And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV

Our Equip classes and Equip small groups enable us to carry out our mission of reaching the lost and training the saints. We offer topical classes at church throughout the year and Equip small groups (8-12 people) that meet in homes throughout Wise County. You can browse the classes and groups offered each semester and register online.

Following Jesus will radically alter the trajectory of your life. Jesus offers abundant life to everyone, but it won’t happen in isolation. At Victory, one of the ways we grow is through Equip small groups. Surrounding yourself with like minded believers is one of the best ways to strengthen your faith and better yourself.

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.

Equip Class: Danny Sanders – Mens Group

Play the Man, by Mark Batterson, is inspiring call to men to be something greater. In this Bible study, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. He shares inspiring stories of manhood, including the true story of the hero and martyr, Polycarp, who first heard the voice from heaven say, “Play the man.” He also offers practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men who will put God first, family second, and career third. This group is for men ages 18 and up.

Equip Class: Bryan and Hailey Brown

This class goes over the “UnAnswered” DVD by Jeremiah J Johnston. Tough questions are being asked about Christianity. And most believers are ill-equipped to provide the answers our culture and communities desperately need. Many in today’s church do not know the Bible as well as they should and they struggle with their own “big questions” about the faith. This study by Jeremiah J. Johnston provides precisely what the church needs today: tools and answers! It addresses several challenging topics, including mental health and suicide, paranormal activity, the resurrection, and how we got the Bible.

Detours – Dr Tony Evans – A 6-session DVD Bible Study

Find hope in understanding that the sudden or seemingly endless detours in life are God’s way of moving you from where you are to where He wants you to be. Whether through uncontrollable circumstances or the pain of personal relationships, everyone has experienced unforeseen changes in life. This study helps believers navigate detours that may take you through trials, injustice, and even betrayal. You will be comforted and encouraged when you learn to rest in God’s redemptive plan and the hope found in God’s sovereign will.

Equip Class: Connie and Gary Dickenson

This class is about Andrew Wommack’s “Staying Full Of God” DVD. Many Christians’ experiences are that they are leaky vessels. Whatever they receive from God soon leaks out, and they have to be filled or healed again. That is not the way the Lord intends the Christian life to be. God’s gifts and callings are never taken back (Rom. 11:29). It’s never God’s transmitter that’s broken; it’s our receivers that’s the problem. That’s what this teaching is all about.


Equip Class: Victory Ladies

This is going to be an interactive session (not video based) where we will take a look at what the bible has to say about women, their roles & relationships. Topics will include marriage, conflict in marriage, divorce, widows, remarriage, children, in-laws & friendships. Each week you will hear personal stories from Velda & others, as well as a time for Q & A.
We will not have workbooks this session so be sure to bring your bibles & notebooks.


Equip Class: Pastor Allen Bates

This class will focus on the Holy Spirit and all different topics associated with him such as spiritual gifts, being lead by the Spirit, and much more. Pastor Allen Bates will be teaching this class and you will be provided materials accordingly. Please arrive at Victory a few minutes early to check children into their classes. The Equip Class will start promptly at 7:00pm. The Victory Cafe will also be open for refreshments before classes begin. There will no regular Wednesday Night services during this time.


Is childcare provided?
We will offer childcare at church for Equip groups and classes that meet on Wednesday evenings. You can drop your kids off at 6:30pm and must pick them up no later than 8:30pm. Equip groups that meet at other times/days during the week will have to make arrangements for their own childcare.

What types of groups are there?
The main categories for groups are Couples, Women, Men, Young Adults and Seniors. The categories below are broken down by location, meeting day, time, and curriculum.

Why should I join an Equip small group?
We believe in the power of small groups to impact your life, the lives of those around you, and even our community as a whole. We believe you can only go so far on your own. God designed us to be connected to each other so we can continue to grow in every facet of our lives.

When can I join a group?
The best time to join a group is in the weeks leading up to a new semester; however, the Equip sign-ups stay open for the duration of each semester to allow access to groups anytime a semester is underway.

Have an idea for an Equip small group? Want to start your own?
