LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT through
Exposure // Experience // Expertise
Your Next Step towards a BA in Applied Theology

Our Vision at GREEN PASTURES LEADERSHIP COLLEGE is to raise leaders who are trained and equipped to lead in LIFE : Loving Jesus , Inspiring the Church, Forming Communities and Engaging their world.

Based at Green Pastures Church, Ballymena, Northern Ireland, our COLLEGE courses provide a unique opportunity for you to develop in transformational leadership.

This is outworked in the context of a 21st century life giving Church, while receiving the training required to award you Certificate and Diploma accreditation in partnership with Moorlands College.

GREEN PASTURES LEADERSHIP COLLEGE will provide an opportunity for you to achieve an Advanced Diploma in Leadership and Worship/Creative in Sept 2019 which is one step away from our upcoming third year option – a BA (Hons) in Applied Theology.

EXPOSURE // EXPERIENCE // EXPERTISE

Exposure to the bigger picture of church life and ministry at a local, national and international level.

COLLEGE CONFERENCE EXPERIENCE, INTENSIVES & MISSIONS PLACEMENTS.

Exposure to ministry through serving at local and national conferences is key to each leader’s development.

College Intensives give leaders opportunity to receive personal ministry and engage in personal growth. Enlarging the heart of the leader for impact beyond the local context is the heart of missions. Through the college year students will have local, and international Mission Placements.

Experience contributing to team in a Life Giving 21st Century Church

COLLEGE PRACTICUMS, COACHING PROGRAMME & LOCAL CHURCH WEEKEND INVOLVEMENT

Experience of real time ministry through active involvement on a team in a specific area of church life is essential for personal and leadership development. The College Practicum provides students with hands on experience of serving within a department of a local Church for one day each teaching week (the day will depend upon the department).
At GREEN PASTURES LEADERSHIP COLLEGE we are delighted to facilitate a Coaching Programme for all our students.
