Need some strategies and skills for ministry among children and teenagers, but don’t have much time?
Youthworks College offers ministry electives in Youth Ministry and Children’s Ministry in intensive mode at various times of the year. The units form part of the full time Diploma of Theology/Diploma of Ministry program taught at the College, but can be taken as individual units for anyone seeking further training in these ministry areas.
Suitable for people of all ages involved in youth or children’s ministries, the intensive units provide an excellent opportunity to gain some useful training and theological reflection on your ministry.
How does it work?
Join the full time students in six days of training sessions spread over two weeks (Monday to Wednesday). Participants are able to share together in a residential community experience with many other ministry trainees and receive expert instruction that will give you the necessary theological foundations and skills for effective ministry to children and young people.. Assessment tasks completed after the intensive period give credit towards the Diploma of Theology awarded by the Australian College of Theology.
The units are awarded by the Australian College of Theology and can be taken for credit towards the Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses offered by the College. With no time limit on completing the remaining courses you can return to complete the program when you choose.
