Why choose St Mark’s
We are highly qualified and experienced
St Mark’s has been equipping people for ministry for over 40 years; we’ve also been a partner of the School of Theology at Charles Sturt University since 1995. Our lecturers are all passionate, practising Christians, and come from all stripes of Christianity. Many are already in ministry, just starting out, or working in corporate or para-church organisations. Our teaching is deeply grounded in the Christian faith and ethos.
Our training is widely recognised
Through St Mark’s Registered Training Organisation, you’ll be equipped with nationally recognised qualifications that have pathways into other related courses and areas of learning. This means you can build on your knowledge and skills over time and also gain recognition for prior learning.
Like St Mark’s Registered Training Organisation, Charles Sturt University’s ministry courses are recognised Australia-wide as all our courses are university accredited. They are taught by Christian lecturers all armed with both the academic chops and contemporary ministry experience, giving you the best of theory and practice.
Our community is vibrant and diverse
We take the doing of faith in community seriously. What we especially love about St Mark’s is the diversity of students we attract across the spectrum of Christian traditions — and the kind of robust and respectful dialogue that often results. Rubbing shoulders with leaders from different faith traditions is also a great way to share common struggles and learn about ideas that work.
