Diploma in Christian Ministries - Leadership

The Diploma in Christian Ministries - Leadership has been developed to enable people with highly effective skills in leadership and ministry to gain a NZQA diploma level 5 qualification. It acknowledges that their past experience is valuable and is worthy of recognition. Part of the process is to identify strengthens and weaknesses in your personal development. It then positions the pastor to undertake additional study to equip them for their leadership and ministry role.

As you will agree the current expectations on ministers are extremely complex and places unrealistic demands on the pastor and their team. To best safeguard the church we recommend a continuing education programme for the pastor. The diploma serves to not only benchmark the current competencies but also look at developing thought and teaching on Theology, Ethics, Leadership, Cross-Cultural ministry and Biblical Interpretation.
