Applications for the Crosslands seminary-level course close in 1 month
Designed for those training for leadership
Our seminary-level course is designed for assistant pastors, aspiring church planters, apprentices and even those in ministry wanting to 'top-up' their theology. The curriculum is split into four streams: Bible, Pastoral, Doctrine and Mission.
We offer a three-year rolling programme specialising in Church Planting, Church Leadership or Cross-Cultural Mission, although some students choose to study for just one or two years with us.
Designed to be studied where you live, work and serve
The course is delivered in-context and in-community using modern, blended techniques:
- Mentoring in your local church - all our students should be involved with their local church and study with their minister or mentor's support
- Independent study - our students should set aside a minimum of 10 hours' study per week, which includes a weekly contribution to a moderated blog. This is online, via our partners, BibleMesh
- Seminar days - each module in the course builds towards an assignment, which is presented and discussed in seminar days run by our Crosslands tutors. These happen five times a year.
- Intensive residentials - we gather all students in our UK and Ireland Crosslands hubs for 1 week in the Autumn, a weekend in February and a further week in the early Summer. The residentials are great times for fellowship with your peers, the writers introducing/closing modules, peer review activities and interaction with current theological issues
Designed to give value for money
The course costs £2,000 or €2,500 per student per year.
This includes everything for the year, except travel to the residentials and any set texts the student chooses to buy. We are working towards offering scholarships but this is likely to be in-place for the September 2018 entry.
