Hear from our Students
“I have enjoyed every moment of my time at Christ College. Coming from a legal background where sometimes my work felt undervalued in some Christian contexts, I appreciate how everyone at College seeks to live the vision ‘Christ for all of life’. The lecturers are world class scholars each in their own right but all are pastors at heart. The more intimate class sizes means greater access to the lecturers and deeper relationships with both the staff and fellow students.”
Stephen Tan, PCNSW Candidate
“To undertake years of rich and deep theological education is a unique privilege, especially at such a world class institution. I have grown a deep love for God, a keen self awareness of my own strengths and weaknesses, and all the attitudes and skills a pastor needs to care, lead and preach.”
Rob Falls, Graduate, Missionary in Vanuatu
“I’m loving my time studying at Christ College. Over the last two years, I have found college to be a very supportive environment, where the lecturers have been encouraging and pastorally minded. My time at Christ College has equipped me for lifelong ministry and engaging my surrounding culture with the gospel. – FT Student, Matt Telfer“
