We believe in training and equipping believers for life and leadership. Studying at Nations College will not only help you live well but it will also help you lead well. Whatever background you come from or stage of life you are currently at, setting aside a year to study at Nations College will help grow you into the person of influence God has called you to be.

Nations College will equip you in three main areas:

 

Grow Your Leadership

Ministry Opportunities

Nations College offers a wide range of ministry areas. You will be equipped to outwork the planning and execution of our church services, community outreaches and other ministry expressions. Our practical ministry program involves one-on-one mentoring with Nations Church pastors who will help develop and extend your ministry effectiveness. The ministry component of the course is also designed to grow your leadership so that you can be effective in all areas of your life.

Strengthen Your Theology

Higher Education – Diploma of Ministry

The Higher Education Diploma of Ministry includes a variety of units that cover topics such as Old and New Testament scripture, Christian worldview and leadership development. Through these teachings you will be equipped with the essential skills to see life in the light of correct biblical and theological interpretation.

Nations College hosts the Diploma of Ministry which is accredited and delivered by Alphacrucis College. This means you will be enrolled at Alphacrucis College as an online student, but will complete your internship and attend face-to-face lectures at Nations College.

Accelerate Your Discipleship

As disciples we are first and foremost called to pursue Jesus and serve others out of the overflow of His presence in our lives. The College year will provide you with opportunities to receive extensive teaching and ministry from key leaders at Nations Church, as well as exclusive sessions with guest ministers. 

There are regular opportunities to encounter God and receive valuable teaching on personal wholeness. Accelerating your discipleship will empower you to live your life fully for the purposes of God.

Student Testimonies

Bradley Sawyer

My year at Nations College was super transformational and helped to accelerate my personal growth far beyond my expectations. During College, it was difficult for me to see where the growth was occurring in me, but in stepping back I can now see how much I have learnt and how much I have grown. I am so grateful for what God has done in me, and for what he has lead me through.

I have been able to grow significantly in my confidence and in my leadership ability, as I have sought to know God on a deeper level. Before enrolling in College, I was someone who struggled to talk in front of a crowd, it was something that really terrified me. However, through College I have had the opportunity to confidently speak in front of various groups and lead different teams of people.

Nations College has helped to teach me what it means to be a better disciple and how I can take steps to become more like Christ.

Catherine Masturi

Saying ‘Yes’ to Nations College was like saying yes to allowing God to do surgery on my heart. It’s been a year of character refinement, a year of surrender and a journey of personal growth and wholeness.

You go into Nations College expecting to learn more about the Bible, and you do, but it is so much more than just that. You also learn so much more about your identity and who you are in God, and it is such a beautiful transformative journey. It is the most worthwhile thing you can do for yourself and your relationship with God.

Throughout the year, God has unveiled many revelations of who He is to me, and who I am in Him, which has further stirred my faith and fuelled my desire to be in constant close relationship with Him.

2020 has been a crazy year!

There have been all sorts of challenges as a result of the changing world around us, but I can confidently say that in doing Nations College, I have grown more in this season than I have in any other year of my life.

This year I have learnt so much about myself. I have not only matured as a person, but in my faith and love of God. I have seen such an increase in my understanding of God, much more than I could have ever imagined.

If you are considering doing Nations College in 2021, I would encourage you to jump in and just DO IT!

Last year I had my eyes set on university and didn’t see myself doing anything else. But, as I made Nations Church my home, I found myself yearning for something more. I was never truly sure which course I wanted to do when I left high school, but I was sure that I wanted and needed Jesus in my life.

The Bible calls us to not only live the word of God, but to also teach it to others; this is one of the major reasons why I decided to enrol in Nations College. I not only wanted answers to my own questions, but I also wanted to have biblically correct answers to other people’s questions about God’s kingdom.

I have experienced the most growth in my life
this past year. I have discovered so many passions within myself that may have remained hidden had I not enrolled in the Diploma course. I am forever grateful for the year God has provided me with and would recommend anyone and everyone to enrol in Nations College.
