Over two years, each student will complete a Diploma in Ministry and Theology. The Diploma is designed to help you know God, people, yourself and your context. It intentionally balances sound teaching with day-to-day application in every discipline explored. The Diploma of Ministry and Theology includes ministry best practices, social dynamics and self-awareness, biblical studies, theology and will develop numerous skills needed for multiple ministry expressions. Classes run on Tuesday evenings with the exception of two five-week blocks that will run concurrently on Monday nights.

At CityLife we believe that people develop most when they have the opportunity to both learn and do. The internship component of the CityLife Diploma+ program facilitates students to be practically involved in a ministry area where their unique gifts and talents can be expressed. Each student will complete a minimum of five hours per week practical placement and will reflect actively on what they learn through these experiences. Students will work with a ministry supervisor who will help guide the learning process. Ministry choice areas include: administration, building services, church services & events, community care, creative arts, education and training, evangelism & mission, information technology, kids, media, pastoral, seniors, world impact, and youth & young adults.
Helping people realise their full potential is at the heart of the coaching component. Each week students will gather in a small cohort to explore targeted areas of personal and ministry growth. CityLife staff and key leaders will facilitate the coaching. This format allows students to spend concentrated times with key leaders who have the knowledge and skills to coach others. These coaching groups will take place over a meal each Tuesday night before the formal learning block.
As part of the overall program, students will attend two retreats per year. Retreats allow students to spend time away from regular life commitments to connect with God in new and creative ways. Our retreats are filled with great food, fun activities and uninterrupted times to hear from God. They are a highlight of the year and a significant time in the life of students.
