The Word

And truly He gave some to be apostles, and some to be prophets, and some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. 

Ephesians 4:11-12 NKJV

Award Recognition

Vision International College is an independent Bible college. Many Christian churches and denominations highly value our awards for ministry training purposes.


However, Vision International College cannot offer or guarantee any posting to any church or missions organisation due to the diverse requirements of differing denominations. While our awards are highly respected, applications and inquiries to such bodies must be made in person by the student/graduate.


Upon completing this award, learners should have acquired the necessary knowledge, attitudes, and skills to serve effectively as Christian workers, religious instructors in churches, parishes, para-church organisations, missionary organisations, and religious education.
