Streams of Specialization 

PREACHING

The Preaching and Worship Stream seeks to explore aspects of preaching and worship in the Christian Church, with particular reference to the Evangelical experience. By working with subject specialists and experienced practitioners, students will read broadly and reflect on their own experience in ministry.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION (THROUGH THE PARTICIPATION OF THE CSF)

The Centre for Spiritual Formation (CSF) exists to cultivate a deeper, more intimate relationship with Christ within the lives of its participants. The program provides a variety of learning experiences that involves instruction and reflection, thoughtful practice and spiritual companionship, service and prayer.

BIBLE STUDY AND TEACHING

The Bible Study and Teaching specialization is designed to help Christian leaders and pastors to go deeper in their understanding of God’s word and equip them with the tools to teach the Bible to others.

NORTH AMERICAN CHINESE CHURCH MINISTRIES (NACCM)

The North American Chinese Church Ministries (NACCM) specialization is designed to provide contextualized training for leadership in trilingual (Mandarin, Cantonese and English) and bicultural (Chinese and Western) North American Chinese Church communities, helping students to learn, reflect, dialogue, and integrate the universal Christian tradition within the North American Chinese church context, in order to take up roles as second and third- generation leaders and to meet the particular challenges and opportunities in the modern Chinese church.

CAMPUS/COLLEGE STUDENT MINISTRIES

Through partnership with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Carey has developed a Diploma program in Campus/College Student Ministries, providing training and resources to enrich ministry in a campus environment or among young adults in the local church. Courses in this area may be taken as electives in Carey’s Masters Programs to form a specialization in Campus and/or College Student Ministries.
