Certificate in Applied Theology

an all-round equipping for effective Gospel ministry

The next Certificate in Applied Theology course starts in September 2016.
The one-year Certificate in Applied Theology is awarded to students who successfully complete the first year of the Diploma course but are not continuing to second year.

Our goal is that at the end of training students will be recognised as spiritually mature believers, able communicators of the Christian message and capable leaders in Christian work.

Assessment is done by means of a combination of written assignments and examinations, while ministry and outreach activities are assessed and evaluated ‘on the job’.
