The BA (Hons) in Mission and Ministry aims to further extend the training of vocational workers by building on the Certificate and Diploma courses and offering students the opportunity to complete a part-time degree in six years. The format is similar to the Certificate and the Diploma, but students will be offered the opportunity to explore their specialist ministry in more theological and missiological depth and will be required to complete a research dissertation.
BA (Hons) graduates have gone on to further ministry quoting this qualification as significant in their employment both in the Christian sector and in wider circles relating to vocational ministry.
‘Staff seem to go out of their way to provide the support and resources needed. I’m very grateful.’
‘This course has challenged some of my inherent ways of thinking and caused me to question what I believe and practice.’
‘As a practitioner, I feel that this week has equipped me with the right skills to have a meeting with my leadership team and it has given me insightful thoughts which I will put to use in my practice.’
Students who successfully complete their BA (Hons) in Mission and Ministry could be employed by churches in a voluntary or paid capacity as a mission and/or ministry worker in their specialist field (children, youth, family, third age, sport or creative arts); or at a regional or national level within a parachurch organisation (depending on the student’s level of experience). Integrated teaching at Level 6 will equip students to take on strategic roles within the organisation as well as the supervision and management of other workers and volunteers.
Former graduates of the BA (Hons) in Mission and Ministry Programme are now employed in a number of key roles at regional and national levels within the UK and in overseas mission.
