What is the difference between the Cert IV, Diploma, and Advanced Diploma?

Our one year Certificate IV in Ministry program is the perfect place to start your training adventure. Our first year program builds a basic foundation of biblical teaching and principles for ministry coupled with practical experience and market-place skills across streams. 


Our Diploma program will take your leadership training to the next level. By building on what you learned in your first year, our Diploma program enlarges your knowledge of biblical teaching and theology, while starting to develop your team and people leadership skills. Entry into the Diploma of Ministry requires the successful completion of the Certificate IV in Ministry. 


Our Advanced Diploma program is specifically designed to help transition students into full-time ministry. Students will train alongside a pastor or key leader at Hillsong Church or other approved ministry or church during the week. Entry into the Advanced Diploma of Ministry requires the successful completion of the Diploma of Ministry.
