“Impact” is a one year course designed to help equip you for ministry with children or teenagers, by exploring different approaches to ministry, Australian culture, healthy personal practices and effective programming. You will also get connected with practitioners from across NSW and ACT.
Impact builds on your involvement with your local church, by helping to build good theory upon which to develop your approach, through engaging with guided readings, and a network of practitioners you can learn from.
IMPACT can be included as a subject taken for academic credit (DM016 - Children's Mnistry or DM017 - Youth Ministry) as part of a diploma or degree through Morling College, or can be taken as a stand-alone experience.
Impact is ideal for youth or children’s pastors, student pastors, interns and key volunteers who serve in these aspects of church life. The course fee does not include attndence at the Connect Day, Leaders Retreat or BYM State Conference. These registrations are made directly with the Baptist Association of Churches.
This is a certificate-level course, which is done part-time for a year and can be credited toward a unit in one of our degrees if you wish to pursue further study at Morling. You do not need any prior experience or training to qualify for this course (other than the normal entry requirements for a diploma or degree, if that option is selected).
For students wanting to complete IMPACT for credit towards a diploma or degree, the cost is the standard per-unit fee for a single subject at Morling.
For students wanting to complete IMPACT as a stand-alone experience (not for credit), the course cost is $320 per person. This does not include the cost of attending the Connect Day, Leaders Retreat, or BYM State Conference registration for these are conducted through the Baptist Association of Churches (Students who choose this option should be aware that this cannot later be credited towards a diploma or degree.)
