SENT (Church Planting Certificate)

SENT is a one year experience that equips missional leaders for ministry in our rapidly changing world. It is for anyone who isn’t simply interested in “content download” but wants to be trained in an environment where practical application, relevant experience, and formation are crucial for learning. You do not need any prior experience or training to qualify for this award.

Study Modes

SENT is a part-time year long course, which begins in February each year. Flexible delivery options are available, including on-campus, livestream and self-directed fully online options.


Fees for these units are charged according to the standard rates for 12cp Bible & Theology Units. The Undergraduate Certificate of Ministry and Graduate Certificate of Divinity are both approved for FEE-HELP.  Please  see our Fees page for more details on fees, payment options and FEE-HELP.

Academic Credit

You can study for credit, towards an Undergraduate Certificate of Ministry or Graduate Certificate of Divinity, or study as an Audit student if you don't wish to gain academic credit.


Existing Morling Students 

Existing students may be able to incorporate the SENT certificate into their existing awards, if it fits within the requirements of your course structure. Please speak to your course advisor before enrolling via the usual Enrolment Form (found on Moodle

New Students

New students can apply for an Undergraduate Certificate of Ministry or (if you already have a Bachelor degree or higher) may apply for Graduate Certificate of Divinity. Both courses can be rolled into higher awards, should you wish to continue studying.

To apply for the one of these courses, you will need to first complete the Student Application process. After you have been accepted as a Morling student, you will then enrol in the SENT subjects as part of your course. We strongly encourage you to contact us, to discuss your study options and eligibility. Or use the online application process to apply now, as either a full-time or part-time student.

Casual / Audit Students

If you don't wish to study for academic credit, you can choose to enrol in each of the 4 units as a casual/audit student. Audit students attend the face to face or livestream classes - to be equipped, but are not required to complete assessment tasks - so will not be able to gain credit for the unit/subject toward another course or award.

Please note that Fully Online mode units cannot be Audited. 

To enrol in SENT as a Casual/Audit student, complete the Casual Enrolment Form for Theology
