Dear Friends: Greetings in the name of our Reigning King and Righteous Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Australia Southern Territory Training College is the oldest Salvation Army training institution outside of London. For generations we have been training warriors to win their world for Jesus. And so our Territorial Commander's passionate war cry to 'Win the world for Jesus!' is completely in line with our intended purposes. We echo that call wholeheartedly. If you are a soldier interested in bolstering your faith and skills with solid practical theology in a setting that supernaturally stokes up the fire within, then I encourage you to prayerfully consider signing up for some of these courses offered. If you are interested in something more than head knowledge, be assured that our instructors and courses are inspired and directed by Commissioner George Scott Railton's counsel: "We are not philosophers or the theorists of revolution; but its agents. Merely to recommend revolution is contemptible. We must make it." And we are always on the lookout for soldiers, who, in the description of General Bramwell Booth, "are godly, and have a clear experience, and live a holy life; those who love souls, and are hard and energetic workers; those who have good health, and are loyal to the principles of the Army, and who appear to have sufficient gifts as are necessary to make efficient leaders" for officership. I join previous Training Principals going back 126 years in challenging you, "Why not prayerfully consider that today, as well?" We will help equip you to win the world for Jesus!

God bless The Salvation Army. Stay close to Jesus. Much grace. Believe me to be, Yours under the Flag, Stephen Court, Captain Training Principal 1

Introduction The Salvation Army Training College Melbourne has been preparing people for ministry for over 100 years. For the majority of these years we have provided an internally accredited course specifically for people training for officership in The Salvation Army. Since 1995 we have offered Government accredited training. The year 2006 was a significant year of transition for our college. After 10 years of functioning within the Vocational Education Sector we, for a number of reasons, made the transition into the Higher Education sector. This change is expressed in the fact that our college is now a Recognised Teaching Institution within the Melbourne College of Divinity, a leading body of theological and ministry education in Australia. Our college offers five awards, the Associate Diploma, Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Ministry and in 2009 the introduction of the Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma of Theology. Our key role of training people for officership in The Salvation Army remains, however study through our college is now open to other interested persons who have a desire to grow in their faith, practice of ministry or who are preparing to enter officership in the future. As a college our emphasis is on preparation for ministry, but we recognise that ministry can be expressed in various ways and we want to be able to help you in your development. So if you are interested in growing in your understanding of faith, the Bible, theology, pastoral care, mission or ministry in a way that will challenge you to think, but also apply your learning in the community around you, then why not consider enrolling to study with us. In this prospectus you will find key information about the nature of our course structure, financial information, details of subjects available and ongoing study possibilities through the Melbourne College of Divinity. If you have more questions or would like to arrange an interview to proceed towards enrolment then please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you whether you are journeying towards officership or as you seek to better equip yourself for mission and ministry where you are. 2

Mark’d Foundations – GAP Year

Mark’d Foundations is a gap year designed to equip and encourage new leaders within The Salvation Army. Participants will acquire leadership skills through study and a practical placement within a youth focused ministry. Although learning is in a youth based setting, the leadership skills acquired are relevant to all forms of ministry within The Salvation Army. Mark’d Foundations is for Salvationists (Adherents and Soldiers) wanting to explore a future in Youth Ministry who have completed Year 12 or equivalent studies. This gap year gives high school graduates the opportunity to experience Youth Ministry whilst deferring from other tertiary studies if required. Mark’d Foundations is a cooperative program between The Salvation Army Training College and The Salvation Army Youth Department. To apply you need to speak with your Divisional Youth Secretary. Upon successful completion of Mark’d Foundations you will receive an Associate Diploma of Ministry, for successful completion, this requires: Semester One: Tuesday

Enrolment If you are interested in enrolling to study with us there are two avenues that need consideration: Enrolment in our Diplomas The Diploma’s are open to enrolment for any interested person who is suitably qualified. You may consider enrolling to study with us because you are exploring a possible future ministry as an officer, or simply so that you can grow in your own faith and understanding or because you want to better equip yourself for mission and ministry in your local community. If you are interested in enrolling in a diploma contact our Registrar who can forward an enrolment form to you and can arrange for an interview with a member of staff to help you further explore the opportunities.

Enrolment for Officer Training The key historical role of The Salvation Army Training College has been training people for officership in The Salvation Army for over one hundred years. Training for officership remains our key role but not all students at our college are training for officership. Applications for training for officership must be directed through Majors Len or Marney Turner, Candidates Department, Salvation Army Training College, Ph 9347 0299. Initial enquiries should be directed to your Corps Officer or Divisional Candidates Secretary who can introduce the process and requirements to you. If you are already studying through our college and later decide to apply for officer training you will need to enter into the candidates process through the Candidates Department.

Enrolment Forms and Handbooks As already indicated enrolment forms and information are available from the Registrar. A full course Handbook will be made available to all students.

Fees Fees for study toward an award of the Melbourne College of Divinity are set by the MCD and as such our course fees are in line with other Recognised Teaching Institutions of the Melbourne College of Divinity. Scheduled fees for undergraduate units in 2009 are $698.00 per 15 point unit. Students undertaking degree level units are liable for the full fee, however as most of our units are offered at diploma only level a scholarship for diploma level units is available thus requiring diploma students to pay a lower fee of $520.00 per 15 point diploma unit. Diploma students utilising Commonwealth Government Fee-Help must be charged the full scheduled fee but other scholarship arrangements can be negotiated. Please contact the Dean of Studies for details on these arrangements. Scheduled fees for Graduate units in 2009 are $1,032.00 per 15 point unit. It is possible for a student to “Audit� a class for a cost of $300.00 per unit. Audit students do not undertake assessment tasks and therefore the unit can not be credited to an award. FEE-HELP is available to students who are Australian Citizens. Under this system tuition fees are met by a loan from the Commonwealth Government which is then repaid when income levels in the future exceed a predetermined point. For further information ring the Fee-Help enquiry line on 1800 020 108 or visit the Fee-Help sections of the MCD website (www.mcd.unimelb.edu.au)

Austudy Students who are studying full time for MCD awards are normally eligible for Austudy (income support from the Commonwealth Government through Centrelink). Specific criteria apply, please contact Centrelink for full information (phone 13 24 90)

Please note that cadets in training for officership are subject to different financial arrangements as our officership program is substantially supported by funding from The Salvation Army.

Officer Training Training for officership needs to be considered in a holistic way and for that reason the training program involves three main foci: spiritual and personal formation, education and theological formation, mission and ministry experience and an understanding of The Salvation Army. None of these are adequate in themselves. Officers are formed in a holistic process, which is possible when all aspects are approached in a balanced and meaningful way and occurs in the interplay between the three aspects.

Commissioning for Salvation Army officership is attained through completion of our threefold training program and is recognised by the awarding of the International Certificate of Officership (an internal Salvation Army qualification). In the Australia Southern Territory many of the requirements of the International Certificate for Officership are achieved through study of 20 units for an Advanced Diploma in Ministry through our college. Commissioning for officership should not be viewed as purely an academic course of study and is not directly equivalent to the completion of an MCD Advanced Diploma in Ministry. 10


imposition 26/11/08 4:34 PM Page 16

Core Unit Requirements for Officer Training Salvation Army officership is a specific ministry and vocation and therefore there are core subjects which must be completed in order to meet commissioning requirements. Seventy five percent of units are core allowing for the remainder to be chosen as electives. Twenty units are normally required for commissioning as an officer. The additional four units to reach twenty-four and complete the Advanced Diploma are further elective choices and can be taken as additional units either before or after commissioning as an officer. Core Requirements 2 units of New Testament (BN) 2 units of Old Testament (BV) 2 units of Church History (CH) 2 units of Theology (CT)

2 units of Spiritual Formation 3 units of Practicum

In addition to the requirements listed above officer training normally involves two non-accredited units; Introduction to Salvation Army Leadership and Salvation Army Distinctives. For those completing officer training outside of Melbourne and using subjects from other Bible or Theological Colleges please note that at least 50% of your units must be completed through an MCD College to receive an MCD Advanced Diploma.

The Melbourne College of Divinity Qui est ex Deo verba Dei audit (The one who is from God hears the words of God)

The Melbourne College of Divinity was constituted by an Act passed by the Parliament of the State of Victoria in December 1910, whereby the first members of the college were appointed. The college then represented the Church of England, the Baptist, Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian churches, and by co-optation the Churches of Christ. Today the college includes Anglican, Baptist, Churches of Christ, Roman Catholic, Uniting and Salvation Army colleges. In 1993 the MCD was affiliated with the University of Melbourne, while retaining its autonomy and degree conferring status. A double degree, Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Theology is available in association with the University of Melbourne, and also with Monash University. The Melbourne College of Divinity thus represents Australia’s most significant achievement in the realm of ecumenical co-operation in the teaching of theology, and has for many decades been the standard by which theological education in Australia is judged. Today the college is a theologically diverse institution, committed to ecumenical cooperation in theological education in a way which enables each participant to be true to its heritage and commitments, yet open to the enrichment of engagement with others committed to the same journey. The opportunities created by such co-operation are unparalleled in Australia, and available in only a few other places in the world. Students, faculty, alumni and friends of the MCD are proud participants in a collaborative effort that has helped to achieve collectively what its member schools could not have accomplished individually.
