Equippers Creative Lab is a full-time, 40 week course designed to train you in the creative arts, while being mentored, discipled, and equipped for life through faith in Jesus Christ. Training is based at the beautiful, historic Mercury Theatre in the heart of Auckland City, and operates under the covering of Equippers Church, Auckland, New Zealand. â€œOur dream has always been to train christians in creative arts to a standard that is world class, but with character that is heaven-class! We believe a Christian artist should be Christian first and Artist second. We want to teach you that your greatest communication tool is your life, not your gift, and the key to excellence in both is GOD! So give God a year and see what He will do in and through you, as you are not only tutored and trained in music, dance and production, but mentored by Libby and myself and our team of great communicators and ministers. All in an environment of a local church that is strong in pastoral care and nation impacting ministry.â€?

I love Wayne and Libby as friends — they are Generals in worship in New Zealand and carry an excellent spirit, and a heart for mentoring and equipping creative Christians. I have no hesitation in recommending Equippers Creative Lab to you, for Jesus-centred training.

“I have known Wayne and Libby Huirua for many years, both as leaders and as friends, and their heart for God and discipling young creatives, qualifies the platform they lead from. I highly recommend Equippers Creative Lab and I’m excited to see what God is going to do in the nation of New Zealand, and beyond, as young people take up the charge to get equipped and trained in the Creative Arts”.
