Southland Church is a local campus for Vineyard Institute (VI). Our partnership with VI is a vital part of our commitment to train and equip the church for ministry. Training is one of seven pillars that Southland Church is built on.
Ephesians 4:11-13 It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Southland School of Ministry will involve aspects of –
- Biblical kingdom theology
- Leadership theory and praxis
- Practical ministry experience
The study year is divided into quarters (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4).
Students can register with a combination of solo/online and collaborative/classroom learning together with ministry opportunities in the local church. Classroom tuition and collaboration will take place at Southland Church one evening per week each quarter. Students can register for a single subject (VI course) per quarter for which local tuition is available at Southland Church one evening per week and/or you may chose extra subjects on an online only basis.
In 2017 Vineyard Institute signed an articulation agreement with Harvest Bible College, which has since merged with Alphacrucis College. This means students completing Vineyard Institute courses can apply to have recognition of their Vineyard Institute course towards an Australian accredited certificate, diploma, degree.
Costs to study include –
- Vineyard Institute subjects (VI courses): USD $140 per subject (course) for Southland students (subject to change by VI).
- Quarterly tuition fee: AUD $50 (for students who opt for tuition in a Southland Collaborative group)
The quarterly tuition fee is payable via the Southland Church website at the commencement of each quarter. A registration link will be provided 30 days before the commencement of each quarter and will expire once the quarter has commenced.
