How we learn
We learn by doing. When we study Church Planting, part of the assessment is that students join a church planting team. When we study Community Development, students participate in community ministries. And when we study Theology, students have to explain what they believe to someone who thinks differently from them.
Our courses are delivered in a variety of modes: face-to-face at our Townsville campus over a semester, week-long ‘intensives’, and online through our electronic classroom. In some cases, distance students can join our face-to-face classes via phone conference. Study can be undertaken on a part-time or full-time basis.
