Certificate IV in Christian Ministry and Theology (10742NAT)

A Vocational Course of Study with Eastern College Australia

What it's all about.

Vocational study is a great way to get to know God and His story. In this Certificate course you'll participate in a range of practical topics about God, how to read the Bible and how to work with others.

This course is designed to be practical, with a strong emphasis on class interaction with teachers and students.

The residential model means that your classroom learning doesn't finish at the end of class. Instead, you'll be able to talk to teachers, staff and students informally around the dinner table or doing duties together.

As a certificate student you'll be guided through different learning experiences and activities, eventually leading to a range of practical assessments.

By the end of this course you will have confidence in handling different theological ideas and how to talk to others about God in practical ways.

If you want to draw closer to a deeper walk with God, grasp His word and become more aware of your fit and place in His mission then this Certificate course is for you.
