MISSIONAL COLLEGE

About Grace Missional College


Grace Missional College, inaugurated in 2016, is a joint collaboration with Christian Life Educators Network (CLEN) in partnership with International Christian Missions Plus Ltd (ICM+), and Oral Roberts University (ORU). Grace Missional College (GMC), under Missional Leading of GRACE Discipleship Progress, is developed and driven from the vision and direction of New GRACE. It encapsulates core values of the Missional Family Church into the curriculum to realise its desired strategy and outcomes through equipping  individuals with the Word and practical ministry skills to lead an intentional missional life and service in the church and in the community.

GMC aims to empower and equip leaders, lay ministers, interns, ministry staff and those who have full-time calling.

Two tracks, namely short-term theological certificate and Diploma of Theological Studies, are adapted from the curriculum programs between Christian Life Educators Network (CLEN) in partnership with International Christian Missions Plus Ltd (ICM+), and Oral Roberts University (ORU).

The short-term theological certificate is a 19-credit course (6 modules) including 1-hour practicum and the Diploma of Theological Studies is a 33-credit course (10 modules) including 3-hour practicum.  Students can continue with the Diploma of Theological Studies after completing the short-term theological certificate.
