Bachelor of Ministry

Description

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. 

See the ACT website for the full list of course learning outcomes.
