Hear from some of our graduates:

“Peter Moore has spent years honing the art of mentoring. He teaches out of the depths of countless hours mentoring Christian leaders. It’s been a privilege to learn from Peter’s tutelage, with a cohort of fellow trainees. I commend this course to Christian leaders wanting to pursue more intentional leadership development”.
Dave McDonald, Former FIEC National Director, Salt Community Church Pastor

“The Mentoring course has been extremely valuable as both personal and professional development. The course introduces a model for mentoring which is in itself a powerful tool in discipleship but within the model I’ve learned new skills and approaches to pastoral questions which have given me some creative ideas for discipleship on campus and beyond. I particularly appreciated the way the course was delivered which was highly practical and gave high value to the cohort learning from one another over a couple of years”.
Laura Maddock, Senior Staffworker AFES, Adelaide University
