What will I learn?

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

Many Christians choose care-based professions that they consider to be their ministry in society. As an introductory postgraduate award in Ministry, the course offers the Christian professional a biblical, theological and ministry foundation to support their professional vocation, and provides grounding in the disciplines of Ministry that undergird their personal and professional development while complementing their existing tertiary qualification in their chosen profession.

Further, the Graduate Diploma in Ministry offers students who are reassessing their profession an introduction to vocational knowledge and skills in a new professional area. The course provides opportunity for students to begin preparing for ministry in an evangelical/charismatic setting or leadership position.

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

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

Students who successfully complete the Graduate Certificate in Ministry may articulate into the Graduate Diploma in Ministry. Students who are enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Ministry may exit with the Graduate Certificate in 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.
