BACHELOR OF MINISTRY
INTEGRATING BIBLICAL & THEOLOGICAL STUDY WITH PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
The Bachelor of Ministry 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 Bachelor of Ministry has an emphasis on Ministry & Practice units in the areas of Evangelism and Mission (EM), Pastoral and Church Focused Ministry (PC) and Developmental Ministry (DM). This course will integrate studies in the Bible and Christian Tradition with practical experience and include supervised practice based learning where appropriate.
Open to persons who have achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score of no less than 65 or equivalent; or successful completion of a qualification at AQF level 5 or above; or by demonstated academic suitability for the course.
Further study pathways could include the BMin/BTh double degree; Grad Cert Div; Grad Dip Div; MTS (with advanced standing); BMin (Hons) or BTh (Hons) (assuming the required GPA is achieved)
The Bachelor of Ministry has been devised to train men and women for ministry in areas of pastoral practice. Morling is the accrediting college for Baptist ministers in NSW and ACT, and the Bachelor of Ministry is recommended for those who wish to become an accredited Baptist Pastor.
