Pastoral Theology and Leadership

The Pastoral Theology and Leadership pathway offers advanced knowledge and skills needed for congregational ministry, spiritual nurturing, and organisational leadership. It provides both advanced knowledge on intercultural and pastoral leadership, analytical and practical skills for addressing the challenges faced in pastoral ministry in communities. This pathway presents an opportunity for students to engage with a range of issues in the field of pastoral theology and ministry in a variety of settings including diaspora communities.  Its blending of intergenerational concerns is intentional to address the issue of continuity between first and succeeding generations. Anyone engaged in pastoral ministry will benefit hugely from this pathway as it empowers students to engage in critical exploration of a range of issues in contemporary pastoral ministry. The applied emphasis of the programmes is intentional to ensure that while being critical and scholarly on the Christian faith and its theology, hands-on skills and relevant cultural intelligence is infused into the curriculum to make students effective ministers and strategic leaders in society
