Course Descriptor

This course is designed to enhance the learning and equipping provided throughout the Certificate in Christian Leadership.  This more practical and intimate course equips individuals with the leadership knowledge and skills to intern within their specific ministry area. It also creates an opportunity for tutorial learning and mentoring, tailored to their area of internship, with the benefit of the practical outworking of the skills learned.

Course Modules

Ministry Development
Personal and Leadership Development


The course is centred around an area of internship. This should be an area that will develop and benefit the local church, or a ministry related to the local church, and reflect the calling and passion of the student. This is a 15 hour per week placement (not including usual Sunday Church Serving) which must be agreed with the senior/lead pastor or minister from the local church and the student’s supervisor in the ministry area (if different). During this time of study, we expect that the student will be treated and should behave like a staff member of the local church or ministry.

Interns will also have class every Tuesday morning and afternoon and will be expected to particiapte fully in all Destiny Ministries events throughout the year.

Jobs & Further study

This course may lead to a role within a church or ministry setting.
