Certificate in Christian Ministry - Internship

The Certificate in Christian Ministry - Internship (CertCM) is a pathway for emerging Christian leaders to pursue ministry formation and theological study while serving their churches. Students in the CertCM develop knowledge, skills and experience by connecting their own reflection on the Christian faith with real life practical contexts, equipping them for service in the church and wider contexts. The CertCM programme also provides a pathway into further study for further personal and professional development and provides Christian churches and their agencies with people who can support and enhance their communities and ministries 

CertCM is a one year full-time (or part-time equivalent) programme.
