Our Ministry School

Ministry Preperation

The Ministry Training School is a full-time training programme that prepares people to follow the call of God into vocational ministry. The Ministry Training School has a proven track record having successfully launched many men and women into the sphere of life to which God has called them. We believe that effective ministry is rooted not only in theology, but also in a living and exciting relationship with God.

At the core of our training philosophy are three foundational pillars:

  • Academic Preparation (Heads)

  • Personal Development (Hearts)

  • Practical Ministry (Hands)

Students are required to be involved in church life, either at their home church or at Hatfield Christian Church. From this base of serving, students learn practical ministry skills.  Various outreach opportunities are also made available. From their 2nd year, students are assigned to pastors at the Hatfield Christian Church to learn practical ministry skills from them.

The journey of the heart begins with a discipleship course aimed at establishing a foundation deeply rooted in the Father’s love. All discipleship takes place within an environment of love, acceptance, accountability and personal growth.

Students complete a Bachelor of Theology degree, a Bachelor of Theology specialising in Christian Counseling. A Higher Certificate in Christian Life or Higher Certificate in Christian Counselling in partnership with SATS. These programmes are accredited by the Council of Higher Education (CHE), the Education and Training Quality Assurer (ETQA) of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). The academic content is supplemented by worldview classes as well as the development of essential leadership acumen.
