This is a flexible program offered here at CLTC that enables those who have obtained Diploma or Degrees from other disciplines to undergo theological training. Please download the file below to find out more about this course.
This is an award which offers an integrated and flexible programme of biblical, theological and ministry training for students who have demonstrated ability and success in studying at degree level. Students would normally enter this programme with a degree in a field other than, though not necessarily exclusive of, theology. Students accepted as candidates for this award will also be expected to have recognised and documented involvement in Christian ministry. The GDCS 2 prepares students to continue working in their current vocation or to pursue additional theological training.
CLTC will confer this award at the end of the prescribed period of study, normally one year of
full time study or its equivalent. However, the student may be eligible to use this award to apply for entry into to Master’s level study at CLTC. The student must meet the entrance standards for the Master of Theology.
The GDCS normally consists of twelve courses, including six Bible (BIB) courses, three theology (THL) courses, and three other courses from the Intercultural (ICS), Communication (COM), and Ministry (MIN) disciplines. In addition, more than half of the twelve courses must be done at the Bachelor level while the remaining can be done at the Diploma level. CLTC reserves the right to grant exceptions, in special circumstances, to the distribution of courses required.
