It takes a minimum of 10 hour’s study to cover the English-only online material and set texts each week, including weekly contribution to an online discussion forum, moderated by your tutor.
Our Seminary course is designed for assistant leaders, aspiring church planters, apprentices, youth and children's workers and those in ministry wanting to 'top-up' their training.
It aims to give you a good understanding of key theological concepts in detail with their pastoral and missional implications, to help you lead others in the Christian life.
Students can choose from a four-year MA in Christian Ministry or three-year unaccredited Crosslands Certificate. It is also possible to study the Certificate for just one or two years.
Students study four modules each year (one from each stream) on a rolling programme. All students study Year A, B and C. Students on the accredited option then study Year D to complete their MA in Christian Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS).
