Flexible Study Options Evening Classes

Challenge and Deepen your Biblical Knowledge and its practical application to your life

Our evening classes are an opportunity to learn from experienced lecturers who will stretch, challenge and deepen your biblical knowledge and its practical application to your work, ministry and life, after hours, at a time that may suit you better. 

Why Evening Classes?

Evening classes are the perfect opportunity for those who work or are a primary caregiver during the day to attend on-campus classes - an opportunity to get to know God and His Word more deeply, meet with your peers and lecturers face to face and be better equipped for ministry. 

Other benefits include:

  • the ability to accumulate credits towards an undergraduate or post-graduate diploma or degree;
  • strong support from qualified educators and access to the latest research and resources;
  • access to state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities in the brand new Ministry & Learning Centre at our Macquarie Park or Perth Vose campus;
  • open pathways to further study that can lead towards accreditation as a Baptist Pastor or being equipped for other areas of ministry;
  • the opportunity to learn face-to-face in collaboration with other students.

    The units on this page are units of the Australian College of Theology (CRICOS 02650E). All our evening classes are also open to casual (non-award) enrolment for $390/semester.

This unit aims to equip you with skills and knowledge that will help you partner with God and others in the care of people. Integral to this unit is developing awareness of common and significant pastoral issues and growing in confidence to respond to the needs and life circumstances of people in a wide range of contexts. Students taking this unit will normally have completed a foundation level unit in Pastoral Care. At the heart of this unit is our understanding that God calls us to partner with Him; inviting people to experience the love, grace, power and purpose found in Jesus Christ.

Beyond talking, beyond concepts - this unit will pitch you into the midst of a cross-cultural experience. You will have the opportunity to learn about the Biblical principles of mission as you do it! Mission perspectives will give you the opportunity to consider how the Christian Church engages in mission today and why. You’ll be challenged to think and engage cultures from a theological perspective, not just a reactive one. At the end of this unit you’ll have a better understanding of what it means to be involved in mission and how to minister amongst people of another culture.

In this unit we think about what theology is, and how we go about doing theology, including the practice of theology in every-day life. We will examine the four common ‘sources’ of theology—Scripture, tradition, reason, and experience, and explore the practices of evangelical theology. The unit will lay a good foundation for advanced study in specific theological topics.
