This course provides an initial preparation for further study or for evangelical and/or charismatic Christian ministry and leadership. It prepares students for ancillary ministry and vocational roles that integrate biblical and theological knowledge with the practice of ministry. The course also provides an avenue for students who want to meet the ordination requirements for particular denominations, including the International Network of Churches. Students can complete the diploma as a stand-alone qualification or use it to gain advanced standing into the Bachelor of Ministry.
