Our campus based study programmes
We offer a range of study programmes at our Tauranga Campus.
The first year course is known as the Certificate in Ministry Development and is broken up into 3 stages. The first stage is an 18-week block of classroom lectures and occasional weekend outstations, followed by a 10 week practicum placement in a church or ministry either within NZ or overseas. Students then return for their final 12 weeks back on campus.
The second year course is the Diploma in Christian Ministry which follows on from our certificate course. Students have their first 18 weeks on campus, followed by a 4 week practicum placement, and then a final 18 weeks on campus. Applications will be considered for those with prior ministry experience who wish to enter straight into our Diploma programme.
Both our courses are NZQA recognized, meaning students can apply for Studylink loans and allowances, and for campus-based courses, studies can be undertaken either through full or part-time enrollment.
Intakes for all our courses are in February and July each year.
