The Diploma in Christian Leadership is a foundational level programme in Christian Studies tailored towards those who are preparing for Christian ministry and leadership within church communities, the not-for-profit sector and a wide range of community vocations.

This leadership and ministry programme provides a unique opportunity to engage in ministry education within the framework of a Pentecostal-Charismatic expression of the faith. Alphacrucis has in recent years developed a strong theological underpinning to the dynamic experiences of Pentecostal-Charismatic practice. This is critical for the development of the next generation of leaders who want to combine an empowering of the Spirit with thorough training and a Christian worldview. The diploma combines contemporary scholarship with an emphasis on the dynamic experience of the presence of God. The two different pathways of internship in the leadership programme offer you an internship component of 25% or 50% depending on your needs, focus and leadership experience.


This programme leads to the New Zealand Diploma in Christian Studies (Level 5) with a strand in Leadership. Alphacrucis is registered and accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority under the provisions of the Education Act 1989 to provide education and training based on the National Qualifications Framework.
