About Incubator

City to City Australia has partnered with Christ College, an affiliated college of the Australian College of Theology to offer the Incubator Program. The Incubator is a two-year program to serve, train and develop church planters and ministers in Australia.

Each Incubator unit addresses the specific needs of planters, including skills in thinking theologically about ministry, and growth in the various areas of ministry. Church planters go through the program during the critical phase of launching their congregations. They get practical help on writing their action plan, the philosophy of ministry, crucial ministry development, and preaching, among other topics. Ideally, this training is accompanied by coaching to encourage the planters to perform to the maximum extent of their giftedness.
For ministers and pastors who are well established, this program is a great opportunity to focus on renewal in your current ministries.

The Incubator Program can be studied for credit towards an Australian College of Theology Master of Arts award, or audited (class attendance only).
