Marketplace Ministry Pathway

Ridley College’s Marketplace Institute equips Christians specifically for their life and witness in the marketplace. You can enroll in the one-year Graduate Diploma of Divinity and can specialise in the Marketplace Ministry Pathway where you will:

  • Develop a “theology of work”
  • Learn how to pastorally care for those in the workplace
  • Be prepared to respond to current apologetic issues
  • Explore how the Christian faith shapes leadership and management
  • Acquire a framework for responding to ethical challenges in the marketplace
  • All grounded in formational Old and New Testament studies

Together with your undergraduate degree, the Graduate Diploma will give you the qualifications necessary to potentially serve as a chaplain, minister to those in the marketplace in a church setting, or better equip you in your life and witness in the workplace.

The Graduate Diploma can be completed full-time or part-time, with some subjects available online.
