BAPTIST ACCREDITATION & PASTORAL TRAINING
Morling College is the theological college of pastoral and related ministries for accreditation in NSW and ACT Baptist churches.
At the April Baptist Assembly, 2015 new Baptist Accreditation guidelines were accepted. These new guidelines are being reflected in new processes surrounding Baptist Accreditation and training.
Requirements and further details surrounding Baptist accreditation training and formation will be supplied when contact has been made with the Accreditation Adviser, Keith Mitchell – KeithM@morling.edu.au.
PRE-APPLICATION INFORMATION SESSIONS surrounding Baptist Accreditation take place twice in a year and are hosted at the College, with the first session held early in semester one and the second session held early in semester two. This is a meeting hosted by the College but conducted in liaison with Ministry Support and Development (MSD) whom represent the Baptist Association.
You must have attended the Pre-Applcation Information Session to be able to move ahead with accreditation and then be part of a Pre-Accreditation interview. For students who are unable to make this session, due to distance, contact Viv Grice – email@example.com. Remedial arrangements may be possible, or a Skype connection established.
The next Pre-Application information sessions are:
Thursday, 23 August; 4pm to 5.30pm at Morling College (Room TBC)
The next set of Pre-Application Interviews is being held at the Baptist Ministry Centre, Epping on Thursday, 4 October 2018. If you have attended a Pre-accreditation Interest Meeting and received the appropriate forms, and are still interested in continuing forward towards Accreditation candidacy then ensure you lodge these completed forms and Pastor's reference as as soon as possible so that a time slot can be allocated on this day. This is the next step in moving forward to receive Baptist Accreditation.
