Content

This unit invites integrative study of two theological concepts: faith and ministry, and the relationship between them. It will entail biblical and theological study of the meaning of Christian faith. It will also require research into the term ‘minister’, in biblical contexts and ecclesiology, and reflection upon the relationship of faith and ministry in a specific context or aspect of the student’s life or experience. The unit will draw upon the student’s theological studies across a range of disciplines, towards an integrated application in their own situation.

The Capstone unit is undertaken within the final two semesters of a Masters Degree.
