DIPLOMA IN CHRISTIAN MINISTRY

The course is designed to provide additional training to that obtained at the Associate Diploma in Christian Ministry level. It comprises of the ten modules at the Associate Diploma level, nine additional taught modules, and a practical placement module. The aim is to provide some level of theological reflections and to deepen engagement with the major disciplines of theology, ministry and mission.

Students are required to complete mandatory, one-month practical attachment with any Bible believing church or Christian organisation where they will put their knowledge to practical use. Placements are credit-bearing and count towards the final award.

The modules are very exciting and will stimulate your desire to know more about your Christian faith and Christian ministry.

COURSE DURATION

  • 9 modules designed to run on a module-per-month basis, and a practical placement all for completion within 1 year.
  • There is flexibility however, for modules to be delivered at different frequencies depending on the cohorts. For example, some cohorts complete the course within 6 to 9 months by opting to increase their attendance frequency.
