Why Embassy Equipping?
Embassy Equipping exists to equip the church and other organizations toward an effective, missional stance and strategy. We want to see churches have an impact in our culture, within local neighborhoods and around the world. We help them assess where they are as individuals, as a team, or as an entire organization. We then give them the leadership insight and techniques they need to move forward.
Carrying the grace, truth, and love of Christ into our world not only requires an understanding of our world - but an understanding and development of ourselves as leaders. Embassy Equipping helps you develop as an individual leader and equips your team, a cohort of leaders, or your church toward that end. We provide individual coaching, staff and team leadership development, video cohort equipping and guest speaking.
We help you, your team, your staff, and your church understand our culture in order to represent the grace, truth, and love of the Kingdom of God in our world as it is. We develop your cultural stance, your biblical understanding of culture, and our necessary place within it. We do this in order to be transformed into a clearer image of Christ so we can be used by God in His desire to redeem all things. We have been given the mission of reconciliation - we are here to equip you toward being a part of that mission.

Embassy Equipping has grown out of the experiences and development of its founder, Mike Sherman. Educated at Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, Mike has been an Executive Pastor for many years who has seen the challenges faced by churches, teams, leaders, and individuals to understand our world and how they can live on mission in it. As part of his journey, Mike has sought to understand our world and equip others to understand it as well. Along the way he was a part of team and leader development and saw the necessity of pursuing emotional health, spiritual transformation, and leadership development in order to be the people who can fulfill our mission. Embassy Equipping reflects Mike's desire to offer these experiences, and the resources developed along the way, to churches, teams, and individuals for the glory of God.
When it comes to faithfully understanding and navigating culture as a Christ follower, Mike is an essential guide in the wilderness. He has shaped my thinking tremendously.

Mike's curiosity, insight, and teaching on culture have been so valuable to me and have helped me engage with and think about the world differently. He's also been so valuable in helping me grow as a leader.
