Vision Mission Values


To the glory of God –
Thousands of loving, skilled graduates bringing the light of Christ to a dark and needy world.


We create learning communities through which God prepares his people – theologically, spiritually, and practically – to serve Jesus in diverse contexts and cultures.


We are:

  1. Centred on the Bible
    The Word of God is our guide, our delight, our final authority, and our prized tool for ministry. Therefore, we pursue deep and transformative biblical knowledge, understanding, and application.
  2. Passionate about God’s mission
    We heed the command of Christ to make disciples of all nations. We have a special burden for the least-reached people of the world.
  3. Growing spiritually
    We pursue a Christlike character, godly obedience, courageous faith, and a deepening love for God and neighbour, recognising that these are of the utmost importance for life and ministry.
  4. Community-oriented
    We believe that learning is more satisfying, meaningful, mutual, and transformative when it happens in the context of relationship. Our priorities, activities, and physical spaces reflect this.
  5. Diverse
    We believe that God is glorified and we grow in wisdom and character when the community in which we learn and serve is richly diverse. Our proudly interdenominational community includes men and women from a variety of cultures, backgrounds, levels of education, and life stages.
  6. Focussed on ministry outcomes
    We pursue ministry competencies, personal effectiveness, cultural intelligence, and communication skills appropriate to our contexts.
