10432NAT Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology

This program is made available through 45219 RTO: Evolution Learning in partnership with Suncoast Christian College.

The Certificate III Christian Ministry and Theology provides a way to really invest in your spiritual growth – to connect with a group of friends who are God-focussed and accepting, and to explore your faith with adult mentors. It’s a space where you are free to ask the hard questions, to discover who you are in Christ, and to test your faith in real life. This course is not merely about learning facts, or passing a course. It is an experience of action and reflection, where the truths of the Bible are lived in everyday experience and then formed into your character through deep reflection and Godly relationships. It is a powerful and life-changing opportunity that develops in students the critical capacities required for work in ministry settings. You will be placed into situations where your heart, your mind and your imagination can be captured by Christ and then, once captured, transformed by the experience of the radical life you are challenged to live, which is what lies at the heart of any ministry vocation. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2. The Certificate has been approved by QCAA as an endorsed course and on completion will give students 8 credit points towards their QCE. Please note that this course is not available to international students.
