Pastoral and Missional Training at a Baptist College
Coronavirus update. Though all our college premises are currently closed, our teaching continues as does our application process. If you were thinking of joining any of our courses, please do continue with your plans! Do get in touch with us directly by emailing the appropriate college through the college links below. Some of you may be hoping to begin as a ministerial student. You may fear that the initial stages of gaining confirmation of your calling from your church and then from your local Ministerial Recognition Committee will have stalled. This is not necessarily the case, depending on your circumstances. Please talk to your regional minister who will talk you through the options.
Baptist Colleges prepare women and men for pastoral and missional leadership: they train the next generation of accredited Baptist ministers and pioneers; they enable those wishing to specialise in chaplaincy, evangelism, counselling, pastoral supervision and children’s, youth and families; they provide a broad range of courses to enhance the skills of local church leaders; and they facilitate theological learning at every level from beginners’ studies to doctorates.
Please read the overview
of college courses and then use the images below to find out more about each college. Although the colleges have their home in five cities – London, Manchester, Oxford, Bristol and Cardiff – some training can also be accessed through college hubs in Sheffield, Birmingham, Durham, Cambridge and Exeter.
Most importantly, if you have any training requirement or question, please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of the colleges directly. They will do all they can to make your learning possible. Click here for a list of our colleges
