This course provides an initial professional award for Christian ministry and leadership. It is structured into three fields of study to provide an appropriate framework for professional ministry education – ministry foundations, ministry formation and ministry practice – and provides an understanding of ministry that prepares students to fulfil a variety of ministry roles in local churches and wider society. The course includes biblical, theological and ministry knowledge together with their fundamental principles and tenets, as well as developing academic skills for lifelong learning and equipping students with the practical skills to function effectively in a professional ministry context. Students engage in practical ministry experience through practicum placements in suitable and relevant ministry areas.
Modes of study can be combined. Contact CHC for information.
The fees listed are for 2021. Fees for 2022 are expected to be available in October.
A Blue Card or equivalent is required for practicum purposes; refer to institution.
