Since 2012, our ministry has evolved into a strategic vision with advanced goals for U.S. Missions outreach, worship, proclamation, teaching, education, and enrichment – aiding local, regional, and national churches, organizations, and the community at large. This intentionally-gauged mission led by founding President and Ordained Pastor and Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Loretta Iannicelli, has creatively and uniquely flourished in vision to reach those in need, equip and empower many, and align with organizations and peoples in resiliency, care, and sustainability.
Expanding vision into community healthcare, crisis/critical incident support, and education, the goal remains to bring a leading-edge, culture of care to the practical point of need.
Equip Services, Inc. has formed to provide a more formalized, centrally-operated, and strategically-guided Christian-based organization. With great joy and generosity, we work faithfully to continue to evolve as Equip Services, Inc. welcomes an opportunity to partner with the American Evangelistic Association and others in ways that will continue to advance the love, care, and Gospel message of Jesus Christ locally and abroad.
Many are well-versed with the words and works relating to a “Good Samaritan” as written and deliniated in Matthew 25:40:
“The King will reply, ‘Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
Rev. Dr. Iannicelli has been in covenant with God to crystallize this Commission.
Since accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, she has pursued the mandate of God to seek and save souls not only through the preaching of the Gospel, but also in the caring for the needs of others in continuance of her greatest decision to first choose Christ and to pursue a clear Call from God. In doing so, Equip Services, Inc.'s mission is to bring a transformative message, a passion for care, and God’s love to people in need. A holistic approach toward ministry offers a focus on wholeness of mind (soul), body, and Spirit to minister to the whole person both inside (as Pastor) and outside the church walls (as Chaplain). Here, Equip Services, Inc. offers a creative model for 21st century ministry where partnering with God’s directives through love, care, and wholeness is the mandate. With compassion as its thrust and the love of Christ as its reason, Equip Services, Inc. aims to impact the lives of many.
A Culture of Care |
Since 2009, many liked-minded Christians came together as they convened at open gatherings to create an interfaith place of comfort, welcoming, worship, care and support of others. Through these gatherings, many shared in the Christian love of the Gospel message through the Word of God, in fellowship toward the common good, and by instilling and adhering to compassion for all. Support forums began out of grass root efforts and led to a worldwide prayer network of more than now 250 prayer partners joining together in love, commitment, and journey from all parts of the globe.
