Exciting Changes for the Ridley Certificate

Posted: 07/02/19

Since we launched our first four Ridley Certificate subjects in 2013, thousands of people have gone deeper in their faith through our Certificate of Bible and Ministry.

Today, 13 subjects written by Ridley Faculty and other internationally renowned scholars are available. Subjects range from Bible Overview to Apologetics to specific books of the Bible all comprising professionally developed video content, handouts and quizzes. Ridley Small Groups has also been developed, offering 4 bible subjects especially formatted for group settings.

And now, the Ridley Certificate team has launched a new platform making study easier than ever before.

Head of the redevelopment team and lecturer in Old Testament at Ridley Andrew Judd says ‘Our lessons are built around commute-sized videos with some brilliant teachers who can clearly explain complex ideas in a short space of time. I have a 20 minute tram ride to work each day, and I remember thinking – how great would it be if, instead of scrolling our Instagram feeds, we could use this time to get better equipped for serving Jesus in this world.’

Improvements include:

Assistant Minister at St Bart’s, Toowoomba, David Browne, has been using the Ridley Certificate at his church.

‘It is the best short online course on offer from an Australian Bible College’ he says. ‘It gives people in our church the tools they need to share the good news of Jesus, answer difficult theological questions, and grow in their love for God. The videos are informative and engaging, the content is insightful, and the support structures are perfect for adult education’.

Andrew Judd says that the Ridley Certificate is all about serving local churches like St Bart’s. ‘I love hearing how people in churches all around the world have grown in their love and wonder of the God who is revealed in Jesus Christ. At its heart, the Ridley Certificate is about equipping Christians everywhere with confidence in understanding the Bible, and skills in building up the church. Jesus calls us to love God with our whole being, including our minds’.
