Basic biblical foundations, principles for ministry, as well as general leadership and ministry skills are developed through our core subjects, which all students complete. In addition, students also choose one of our five streams and complete all of their stream's subjects to develop their specialised ministry skills. Students are also given the opportunity to further their competence in weekly practicum as they serve in their specialised fields.
Students will learn in a variety of settings including lecture-style classes, group-work, presentation, self-directed learning activities, workshops, tutorials and work-based training. Assessment methods include written assignments, reports and journals, oral and written presentations, ministry observation, performances, portfolios, tests, and work-place feedback. It trains you with the skills you need to work in a ministry team setting in a local church or Christian organisation, for example,
- A small group leader
- A youth team worker
- A worship team vocalist or musician
- An assistant leader in a kids or student team
- A member of a Christian dance team
- A camera operator
- A sound desk operator
The course also trains you with the skills needed in marketplace careers in the same field as your Stream’s ministry specialisation.
