The Diploma of Ministry is a nationally recognised course, accredited by Alphacrucis College and offered in person and online. It offers an exciting year of character development and personal transformation. It is specifically designed to build strong biblical foundations that will stand in the face of current culture. We believe that it is a necessary prerequisite and great preparation for university study. Students who study the Diploma of Ministry are choosing to grow their faith, their relationship with God and building God's house.
