Program Overview

The Graduate Diploma in Ministry provides students with a well developed understanding of the theological basis for and nature of Christian ministry and leadership in the 21st century, as well as a deeper appreciation of their chosen area of specialisation (biblical studies, theological studies, spirituality and formation for ministry, or ministry practice). Graduates will be able to apply their knowledge and skills to professional practice in ministry contexts or for further learning in educational institutions.

The Graduate Diploma in Ministry is Tabor's foundational postgraduate award for students who hold a Bachelor of Ministry or a Bachelor of Theology. It is a coherent and independent course, but may also serve as a bridge into further coursework (MMin/DMin) or research (MTh/PhD) programs.


Admissions Criteria {Tabor's qualifications are nationally-recognised through our formal registration with TEQSA (Tertiary Education Quality Standards Australia). As such, we are pleased to provide our admissions criteria via the link above.} 

Graduates may find employment as pastors or leaders in church or parachurch organisations. Alternatively, the course may be used as a form of personal or professional development for those already engaged in ministry. Graduates who pursue further study (eg. DMin or PhD) may find employment within Christian tertiary education institutions.
