At Reign Ministries we operate as a Campus for ForMission College running their BA (Hons) in Theology, Mission and Ministry with a Youth Work specialism. ForMission College started as a mission college in 1980 seeking to impact future church leaders. This degree course is accredited by Newman University and is assessed in a multitude of ways, including written assessments, debates, and presentations. Newman University started in 1968 as a Catholic centre for training local primary and secondary teachers, gained university status in 2013 and has a reputation for being highly student focussed.
The degree content is continually reviewed to ensure that what is being delivered is up to date and relevant for the continually evolving societies we find ourselves in.
The delivery of the course is through five intensive facilitated learning weeks throughout the year, weekly online clusters with other fellow students, independent study, and practical work-based learning (at least 12 hours a week). One of the great benefits of our course is that by delivering content intensively students can do their practical experience anywhere travelling in for the intensive weeks before returning and having the chance to apply what they are learning as they go. In the current coronavirus pandemic, all of the teaching has been able to be delivered online so the students still gather for the intensive weeks of learning, fellowship and community.
“…it also seeks to develop each student individually in the five key areas of Personal Formation, Intellectual Formation, Ministry Formation, Missional Formation, and Spiritual Formation…”
Regardless of the way the teaching is delivered, the ability to spend so many hours each week working in your local church or youth project ensures your learning is relevant to real world situations, and the integration between classroom and youth ministry is seamless.
The course aims to train leaders and workers for to be effective missional practitioners for Jesus. As well as covering modules on areas like Theology, Biblical Studies, and Mission History it also seeks to develop each student individually in the five key areas of Personal Formation, Intellectual Formation, Ministry Formation, Missional Formation, and Spiritual Formation. Whilst being stretched academically, practically, and personally students will receive appropriate support to help them thrive, with staff at our Campus as well as individuals at ForMission being contacts to help students wherever we can.
The degree programme is ideal for pragmatists and practitioners, for leaders who love Jesus and love young people, and there’s a place for you on our programme from next September!
