This Advanced Diploma replaces the existing Diploma of Bible and Mission, and the Diploma of Bible and Ministry.
This change allows the College to give proper recognition for the advanced nature of the study undertaken by our students, and also provides the opportunity to include more elective options in program. The new Advanced Diploma gives students an opportunity to choose between three strands of specialisation. The existing focus on mission and on lay ministry have been retained, but students can now also choose to specialise in women’s ministry.
All three strands of the Advanced Diploma share the same core biblical, theological and ministry foundations as is provided for the first year Bachelor’s degree students. This is complemented by elective units tailored to meet specific mission, ministry or women’s ministry needs.
- The Ministry stream continues to prepare people to excel as key members of a local church and witnesses to Jesus in their workplace and community.
- The Mission stream continues to focus on preparing people for cross-cultural and global mission.
- The new Women’s Ministry stream provides opportunities for women to engage with historical and social issues with particular relevance for women’s ministry. This fresh and tighter focus has been geared to even more effectively, prepare women for ministry.
- A current Working With Children Check is required of all Moore College students.
