Pastoral Ministry

The Pastoral Ministry track is aimed at equipping those passionate about service to others. It will not only inspire you to think more broadly about Pastoral Ministry, but will help you integrate what you learn into your ministry context.

The Diploma in Christian Studies (DipCS) is a one-year diploma (120 credits) offered in Auckland, Manukau, and Christchurch in full or part-time mode. This track may be available through Distance Learning.

Contact the School of Theology for more details about the Biblical Studies and Theology track in the DipCS programme:
