The 12-unit Master of Leadership with a mission specialisation builds a strong foundation in biblical and theological studies for serving God cross-culturally. The purpose of this programme is to prepare students in practical ways for effective ministry, whether overseas or in our own multicultural contexts. The masters-level programme, which consists of both core and elective units, will enable the student to shape their programme towards their own learning interests.
Three key elements of this programme are:
1. a focus on transformational development that prepares the student to not only survive but to minister effectively in intercultural contexts
2. development of key leadership skills that enable the graduate to work effectively in cross-cultural environments, either individually or as part of intercultural teams
3. an international ministry placement that allows the student to apply what they have been learning to a real-world ministry situation – these placements generally run for a full trimester (three months), although students with specific needs can apply for a shorter (or longer) duration.
