What will I learn?

The Diploma of Ministry is a one-year course, and is available on both a full time and part time basis.

The Diploma of Ministry is a one-year course (full time equivalent), and is available on both a full time and part time basis. The course normally consists of the first two semesters of the Bachelor of Ministry.

The course provides initial studies at degree level as preparation for further study or as foundational for students’ ministry calling, and offers opportunity for students to begin preparing for evangelical/charismatic Christian ministry and leadership. It also prepares students for ancillary ministry and vocational roles which require the integration of biblical and theological knowledge with the practice of ministry. It will allow for people with life or ministry experience to gain formal qualifications for ministry in the church and the wider society.

The course fulfils the ordination requirements of International Network of Churches (INC).

The maximum time allowed for the completion of the Diploma of Ministry is 5 years. Extensions beyond this time may be approved where extenuating circumstances exist.

Students who successfully complete the Diploma in Ministry may articulate into the Bachelor of Ministry. Students who are enrolled in the Bachelor of Ministry may exit with the Diploma of Ministry , subject to the completion of course requirements.

CHC regards the Bible as the final referent particularly as it applies to defining and shaping Christian Ministry. In the light of this distinctive orientation, the personal, theological, and ministry dimensions of the course are integrated under the authority of Scripture as the revelation of God developed within theological reflection arising from Scripture and applied in ministry and mission.
