  • or as a 

              Leader

              Teacher

Course units are delivered at distance (online), in interactive classes, with online support and resources.

Diploma of Ministry (DipMin)

The Faith and Life Track DipMin (one year full-time or part-time equivalent; 36 Credit points) provides students with a core understanding of the foundations of Orthodox belief, an opportunity to reflect on what service/ministry means for them, together with a wide range of elective units.

For a list of required units, see: Course Template for the Diploma of Ministry

 

For more information and unit descriptions see: 2019 Handbook

Associate Degree of Ministry (AssocMin)

The Faith and Life Track AssocMin (two years full-time or part-time equivalent; 72 Credit points) provides an up-to-date understanding of major ministry concepts and theories as well as the skills to apply them to life situations as effective practitioners.

 

Providing the same foundation as the BMin, the course also provides for beginning specialisation in Biblical Studies and Missiology. This course supports the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to all aspects of Christian service.  Study at this level requires students to become critical and independent learners.

Bachelor of Ministry (BMin)

The Faith and Life Track BMin (three years full-time or part-time equivalent; 108 Credit points) thoroughly grounds students in Orthodox faith and practice, and equips them to be competent in establishing, developing, transforming and growing healthy communities and networks.

 

The Faith and Life Track BMin approaches ministry broadly, whether this leads to a specific lay ministry role, or to personal enrichment and leadership development for other fields of endeavour. The course provides concentrations in selected areas and opportunities to explore the application of Orthodox faith and practice to service within the Church and the wider community.

The incremental structure of the ACD courses means that candidates who enrol for the BMin can, if they choose, exit with the DipMin or the AssocMin once they have completed the respective requirements for these awards. Alternatively, candidates who enrol for either the DipMin or AssocMin have the option of continuing with full credit to the BMin course.
