Jason Pagel, Teaching Minister, Harpeth Hills Church of Christ, Nashville, TN

“Equip went far beyond simple platitudes or quick fixes. Instead we encountered a wholistic approach to thinking and then responding well from a posture of both orthodoxy and empathy when it comes to sexual identity and sexual ethics. We were challenged to think more broadly and deeply about the foggy and often inconsistent ways that these ideas have been typically discussed.”

Laurie Krieg, Speaker & Author of An Impossible Marriage

“The work Pieter and his team are doing at Equip comes from a place of theological soundness, therapeutic wisdom, and lived experience. Their work is worth exploring!”

Rt. Rev. Dr. Todd Hunter, Bishop of the Anglican Churches for the Sake of Others & Author of Deep Peace: Finding Calm in a World of Conflict and Anxiety 

“Equip is uniquely situated to be a voice for biblical fidelity in matters of Christian faith, church, and human sexuality. Pieter has often helped me understand the challenges of human sexuality and the possibilities for all of us to submit our sexualities to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.”

Rev. Dr. Wesley Hill, Author of Washed and Waiting: Reflections on Christian Faithfulness and Homosexuality

“There are precious few resources for gay Christians who want to live within traditional Christian sexual ethics. Equip is one of those few, and its many perspectives on celibacy, in particular, and how our churches need to devote much more loving attention to the question of how best to support and honor celibacy as a time-honored Christian calling are invaluable.”

Dr. Yucan Chiu, Pastor & Director of the Ethnos Network

“The expertise, personal attention, and theological acuity of Pieter and the Equip team are truly priceless. Their expertise, personal attention, and theological acuity are truly priceless. Their continued posture of learning, along with a multi-generational, holistic vision for the local church, give me hope for our future. I wholeheartedly encourage every local church to partner with Equip’s work.”

Rev. Dr. Greg Peters, Professor at Biola University and Nashotah House Theological Seminary

“Equip is the leading voice in the church when it comes to helping LGBT+ followers of Jesus live out their lives in faithful obedience to God’s commandments. Equip creatively and expertly guides the church and its leaders to navigate the challenging terrain of honoring God’s sexual ethic while honoring the dignity of each son and daughter of God.”

Dr. Julia Sadusky, Licensed Clinical Psychologist & Author of Emerging Gender Identities

“Equip is an essential resource for Christian parents, ministers, and lay people alike. I recommend it to clients, friends, and family and am so grateful for the work Equip is doing for the body of Christ!”

Dr. Leonard Allen, Dean of Lipscomb University College of Bible & Ministry

“Pieter Valk and Equip are providing a crucial service to the Body of Christ in these fraught and confusing times. I commend Pieter for his bold and compassionate voice. We need that now more than ever.”
