Diploma of Leadership (Higher Education)
Empowered to Lead.
We are all called to lead in all spheres of life. Leaders of our destinies, leaders of our communities, leaders in our areas of influence.
Our 1st Year Diploma Programme is designed specifically to do this. Your learning is split equally between formal classes and practical hands on learning. All of this is done in an environment that has a strong emphasis on discipleship, personal leadership and empowerment.
By the end of first year you can expect to have;
- A good foundational knowledge in Biblical Studies and Christian Theology
- A dynamic and intimate personal relationship with God
- Mastery in self leadership and general leadership principles
- Experience in leading small groups of people within your chosen stream
- Practical expertise in your chosen ministry area
Upon completion, you will receive two certificates, a Certificate of Completion from Planetshakers College for the training and discipleship experience, and your Diploma of Leadership from Alphacrucis acknowledging your academic studies.
From the first moment I stepped into the College chapel service, God began to touch my spirit in a way I never experienced before. It was here He began to speak so clearly into my life for the next six months. I really believe there was such significance in stepping out into something new and trusting that God would reveal His plan for my life. And it was through this faith and obedience that I can truly say that my life was changed.
