Personal Suitability Requirements
Since scholastic achievement is not the sole requirement in ministry, additional factors are considered in assessing applicants’ suitability for entry into the course.
Applicants are asked to submit a personal statement outlining their Christian experience, their understanding of their call to ministry and reasons for seeking to enter the course. Information regarding the requirements of the Personal Statement and a list of topics to address are provided upon application.
Students are also expected to provide, through a pastoral reference, evidence of aptitude and potential for ministry service in terms of temperament, personal qualities, interests and attitude. The Pastoral Referee Report and interview questions are standardised for each applicant.
An interview with the Course Coordinator will also be conducted with individual applicants.
The criteria against which an applicant’s personal suitability for entry to the course is assessed are: Recommendation by the applicant’s local church Pastor/Minister;Personal alignment with the doctrinal values within the evangelical/charismatic tradition, as expressed in the Citipointe Ministry College Statement of Faith and Code of Ministry Ethics; andAgreement to adhere to the Citipointe Ministry College Code of Ministry Ethics.
- These criteria are assessed through the triangulation of information collected through each applicant’s personal statement, pastoral referee report and interview.
- Applicants are notified that the progress of their application is linked to this process.
- This process is designed to be open and transparent and to be equitable for all applicants.
