Christian Ministry and Theology Streams

The Christian Ministry and Theology program is developed around two streams of study.

Biblical Theology
Vision International College prioritises Biblical theology as it intimately aligns with the heart and essence of scripture and resonates universally with our diverse student body.
From Certificate III to Advanced Diploma, our College offers a comprehensive curriculum with all necessary study materials provided. Additional materials are not required, but students are encouraged to consider them for their own personal growth.
Our assignments are open book, intentionally designed to evaluate students’ understanding of the text rather than their memorisation skills. Graduates of our program will gain a valuable library of books that will support their Christian ministry for a lifetime.
Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma studies, students must independently procure additional study materials recognising the research-oriented nature of these courses.
Students are welcome to contact the college principal to explore alternative subjects and customise their studies to meet their specific educational needs.
Ministry Skills Units
These are the “business end of the ministry”; administration, WH&S, dealing with people, management, and such. Where possible, these skills are developed with the student’s Pastor or mentor within the student’s area of ministry to maximise training and build skills upon skills.  Students will access the Vision Online Training Portal for these elective units.

This combination of practical and theological units in cooperation with the local Church ministry training makes the Vision International College program effective in developing a student’s ministry.

A student can discuss with the Principal options for substituting a Ministry Skills Units to meet the own leaning needs The decision of the Principal on the choice of an alternative is final.

Recognition Given To The Training Program

The list below indicates the recognition given to the Christian Ministry and Theology Program only and as taken from a broad sweep of denominations. Each denomination reserves the right to determine the level of qualifications required to fulfil any particular role.  Vision Colleges cannot, and does not, guarantee or offer to any student or graduate a place of employment or a voluntary position based on their study or graduation. Such is the role of the churches and or organisations they are applying.

Vision Colleges is an independent Bible college. While accepted by many Christian Churches and denominations for training purposes, their diverse qualification requirements mean that Vision Colleges cannot, and does not, offer or guarantee any posting to any church or missions organisation. The student/graduate must make applications or inquiries to such bodies in person.


Graduates from these courses will be recognised as appropriate persons to be employed as Religious Instructors, Ministers, mission support personnel, Pastors, and Church-Planters and Missionary Workers (as relevant to the level and type of qualification completed) by the majority of Christian denominations operating throughout Australia and around the world.
