Course Outline


The 10435NAT Advanced Diploma of Christian Ministry and Theology course is designed to provide students with the ability to communicate the Gospel and serve the community, both in formal Christian ministry work and/or in the workplace. The course will train leaders in a range of Christian Ministry areas relevant to the local church, Christian organization and/or the workplace.


This course will give students:

  • A deepened understanding of the Bible and its application
  • High-level skills in theological reasoning and ethical decision-making
  • Highly developed communication (especially in communicating biblical concepts) and people management skills
  • Pastoral care, advanced leadership and ministry skills with a heart for God and people
  • Practical opportunity for further development of specialized ministry skills


This qualification is fully competency-based and while knowledge and some aspects of competency are assessed within the realms of each subject, completion of a ministry project demonstrating all areas of competency will need to be completed to graduate.

The student will obtain practical experience by undertaking field placements at their local church, with a Christian ministry or community service organization. This practical experience is to be gained in an area that complements the assessment project and the immediate goals of the student.

A full-time student would normally undertake a study load of 5 subjects at any one time. Individual subjects may be delivered on a week by week basis or by intensives.


The Advanced Diploma course can be commenced once the student has completed the core units of the Diploma of Christian Ministry and Theology course or gained equivalent Recognition of Prior Learning. This course would typically be completed over a one year period involving six months of formal studies and a six-month field placement. Part-time study options are available.


This course is delivered at Canberra Campus, Belconnen, ACT, and by various Partners interstate. For other delivery sites see the Partners page on the college website.
