ADVANCED DIPLOMA OF MINISTRY
AN INTRODUCTION TO THEOLOGY, TO PREPARE FOR WELL-INFORMED MINISTRY AND LIFE
The Advanced Diploma of Christian studies introduces students, in a systematic manner, to the classical discipline of theology, as a means of preparing men and women for well-informed participation in the life of the church and, if students so choose, for ministry in one or more areas of pastoral practice.
In addition to Bible and Christian Thought units, the Advanced Diploma of Ministry has an emphasis on Ministry and Practice units in the areas of Pastoral & Church-Focussed Ministry (PC), Developmental Ministry (DM), and Evangelism & Mission (EM).
Candidates are normally admitted upon satisfactory completion of year 12 in an Australian school system or equivalent, with an ATAR of 65 or above; or successful completion of a qualification at AQF level 5 or above; or by demonstrated academic suitability for the course.
This course provides a smooth pathway from a one year course into a bachelor degree, should a student wish to articulate.
The course provides foundational knowledge and skills appropriate to Christian ministry, but not to the depth required for leaders and teachers in congregations, for which vocations the Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Ministry, the Master of Ministry, and the Master of Divinity have been devised.
12 Units (144 credit points) at AQF level 5 and above, including at least 2 units (24 credit points) at level 6 or above.
Minimum 1.5 years, maximum 6 years
Units are available both on-campus and online.
