How long does the course run for?

Our Academic Program (Certificate in Christian Ministry - Internship) runs from February to November.

What is the difference between the Leadership Stream and the worship Stream?

The difference between both streams is primarily in the practical ministry in which the students will be involved in. Within the Leadership Stream, the lectures give weight to the development of leadership skills and character, outworked in the practical ministry. Within the Worship Stream, students will have specialised training, development of creative abilities and sharpening of their creative craft. 



Typical week: 2 days of lectures & 3 days of practical application (including serving across Sunday services)
