Our Ministry To The Church

The purpose of Equipped By His Word is truly found in the ministry name. Our desire is to help equip people to walk with the Lord by the use of His Word. Equipped By His Word is available to churches for Bible Conferences and Seminars. The following ministries are available through Equipped By His Word.

  Thirst Conferences

Several churches have asked Dr. Kersh to return and lead another conference following their experience with The Blessed Life Conference. As a result Ted develops  Bible messages that grow believers. These conferences are called “Thirst Conferences”. The purpose is to help believers who are truly thirsty for a deeper walk with the Lord to grow in that walk.

  Ladies Conferences

As a pastor’s wife for over 45 years Jerri Kersh is uniquely qualified to lead the wives of pastors and the ladies of the local church in developing a deeper walk with the Lord through Bible presentations. Your ladies will enjoy the practical teaching of Jerri Kersh. You may reach Jerri through the Equipped By His Word phone or by email at

  Blessed Life Conferences

This conference is led by Dr. Ted Kersh. Ted leads the congregation through a study of The Sermon On the Mount. The conference follows the format of the book, The Blessed Life, Living The Sermon On The Mount, written by Dr. Kersh.

  Deacon Retreats

As a Pastor Ted Kersh developed a unique way to use the Deacons of the local church. This ministry helps the Deacons become an extension of the pastoral ministry of the Pastor.  Pastors  and Deacons are discovering a rich relationship through serving in ministry together.

Our Hosted Conferences

Equipped By His Word is committed to encouraging and assisting pastors. There are two primary ministries hosted by Equipped By His Word.

  Pastors Encouragers Conference

Each Fall Ted and Jerri Kersh host a limited number of couples in Branson, Missouri for The Pastors Encouragers Conference.  This is a three day and two night retreat for the pastors and their wives. The food is amazing. The activities are fun. And the couples are encouraged through the worship and the teaching of the Word of God. The couples only pay $100.00 for this experience. The remainder of the cost is given by individuals who love pastors. Click the “Play” button on the viewer below to watch a video of a recent Pastors Encouragers Conference.

  Expository Preaching Clinics

Ted Kersh has been an expositor of the Bible for many years. His ministry was known for practical expositional preaching of the Word of God. Expository Preaching Clinics are help at various locations through the year. Normally a clinic is held in three days. But other arrangements can be made with Pastors and Directors of Missions to be involved in one of these clinics.
