Licentiate of Church Planting Overview

The Licentiate of Church Planting qualification is specifically designed for Church Planters who are seeking to establish their Church and build strong organisational leadership skills. It is for those who are seeking to be equipped in advanced preaching, biblical and theological knowledge.

The Licentiate of Church Planting builds a strong leader and leadership team. It focuses on high-level leadership development and gaining a strong knowledge of the Bible and how to communicate it to a congregation.

What is a Licentiate of Church Planting? Licentiate comes from the Latin licentia, “freedom” which is applied in the phrases licentia docendi meaning permission to teach and licentia ad practicandum signifying someone who holds a certificate of competence to practise a profession i.e. ministry, theology or parish life.

Graduates of the Licentiate of Church Planting will be equipped with the skills they need for a wide range of church planting roles and functions including senior leadership and ministry roles. Many graduates go into leadership roles, such as senior pastor, associate pastor or departmental pastors, where they are using the leadership, biblical and theological skills they have developed.

Who is the Licentiate of Church Planting for

  • The Licentiate of Church Planting is the perfect qualification for pastors already planting a church who are looking to equip themselves and their leadership team.
  • It is ideal for those who seek to take on a greater role in a church planting by leading a ministry team such as associate pastor, kids, or youth pastor.

This is a classic study of the book of Acts of the Apostles with it applications to leadership in the Church. The aspect of the Local Church Governance resonates perfectly during these days.

The Jewishness of the Acts of Apostle is a lesson that is thought provoking to me as a student. The leadership lessons applied are very timely.
