This program aims to produce Christian practitioners who are equipped to effectively take on leading roles in a variety of Christian ministries. Practical training is a major component and all third year students are to be involved in supervised field education, which is designed to expose them to practical ministry for at least one full day a week. This course is designed for students who wish for more than just a foundational knowledge of the Bible, and who desire to be involved in Christian service at some level. Together with a thorough grounding in the Scriptures and a basic knowledge of theology, this course also equips students to be effective workers within the local church or other Christian ministries.
