Licentiate of Church Planting Overview

The Licentiate of Church Planting qualification is specifically designed for Church Planters who are seeking to establish their Church and build strong organisational leadership skills. It is for those who are seeking to be equipped in advanced preaching, biblical and theological knowledge.

The Licentiate of Church Planting builds a strong leader and leadership team. It focuses on high-level leadership development and gaining a strong knowledge of the Bible and how to communicate it to a congregation.

What is a Licentiate of Church Planting? Licentiate comes from the Latin licentia, “freedom” which is applied in the phrases licentia docendi meaning permission to teach and licentia ad practicandum signifying someone who holds a certificate of competence to practise a profession i.e. ministry, theology or parish life.

Graduates of the Licentiate of Church Planting will be equipped with the skills they need for a wide range of church planting roles and functions including senior leadership and ministry roles. Many graduates go into leadership roles, such as senior pastor, associate pastor or departmental pastors, where they are using the leadership, biblical and theological skills they have developed.

Healthy Church, Growing Church

November 2, 2022

Only healthy people grow and only matured people bear fruits.

Pastoral Ministry is a special ministry that is aimed at diagnosing and balancing our systems so that they can function well. When we have a balanced system __ a healthy system, growth is automatic and only then can we be able to bear fruits __ healthy fruits.

We are taught in various ways to believe that health they say is wealth, but in this lecture I want to agree with the lecturer that health is rather life. When there is health there will be growth and maturity.

The health of the church is a leadership challenge for christians and must be our prime concerns.
