The purpose of the Bachelor of Ministry is to equip Christian leaders to be competent in establishing, developing, transforming and growing healthy communities and networks. This course will enable students to engage seriously with contemporary ministry and mission contexts that are developing and evolving. This course provides academic and professional preparation for ordained or lay ministry roles. It also enables people who are interested to study Christian ministry in contemporary society, whether this leads to a Christian ministry role or to personal enrichment and leadership development for other fields of endeavour. The course provides a strong foundation in the full range of theological disciplines that underpin contemporary ministry leadership - biblical studies, Christian education and discipleship, Christian leadership and missiology - with the ability to specialise in 2 of these areas (major studies). Supervised field education, integrative studies and guided study units provide flexibility to students and the opportunity to combine academic and practical development for professional preparation.
