Most Bible Colleges are focused on prospective pastors becoming more qualified academically. The new Equip Bible College exists for all Christians with a hunger to learn and grow spiritually. With affordable, hands-on, relevant courses that are nationally accredited, Equip Bible College is where you can follow your path, whether that’s ministry or just to learn more about the word of God this is an excellent course.
This course is designed for all believers to be effective in Christian life and ministry. It provides a broad knowledge of Biblical and theological concepts, and hands-on training in practical ministry environments.
All students must be 18 years or older, have completed at least Year 10 equivalent studies, and will be required to undergo a pre-enrolment interview to assess suitability for this course. Students will also be assessed against the Australian Core Skills Framework to determine any language, literacy and/or numeracy support needs.
All students will be required to undertake practical fieldwork throughout the course (190 hours), in a church or Christian ministry environment. As all students have the potential to work with children or youth, all must hold a current Working With Children check.
We have two styles of study available and they are by Classroom or Correspondence or a combination of both.
Average completion time is 12 months. This is self-paced; more time allocated to study will determine when the qualification can be achieved. The full qualification must be completed within 24 months from date of enrolment and regular submission of assessment tasks is required.
This course requires a minimum of 190 work placement hours to be completed within a local church.
