You have a passion for the ministry. You are interested in Theology and how it can enrich your life and the lives of others. You would like to study theology at a university, but you cannot afford to study full time.

If this description fits you, then the Higher Certificate in Theology, which is offered over a period of two years, might be exactly what you are looking for! This programme will provide you with a basic, but thorough knowledge of theology, and will also equip you with essential ministerial skills. Reverend Joseph Pali is the coordinator of this programme. The lectures are presented by him and several other lecturers, all with excellent academic credentials and a heart for the ministry. Furthermore, you will be able to do this certificate even if you have a full-time job, because you only have to attend lectures once every two to three weeks – on a Friday afternoon, from 14:00 to 17:00.

The course consists of four modules – one module per semester.

There is also an opportunity to do the Higher Certificate on a full-time basis over one year.

 If you need more information on the contents of the course, please contact Reverend Joseph Pali on +27 72 227 3490, or email:

The Higher Certificate is also a doorway to higher qualifications:
Obtaining the Higher Certificate in Theology with 65-74%, the student gains access to enrol for the extended BDiv degree.
On obtaining the Higher Certificate in Theology with 75% or more, the student gains access to enrol for the BDiv degree.

For more information on the admission requirements, please contact the Programme Director, Rev Marlene Oosthuizen at 051 401 2617 or
