What is validation?
Selina Teaching

Theology, Ministry and Mission lays the building blocks of Christian theology by introducing subjects such as Theology, Church and Mission, Understanding the Bible and Discovering the Christian Tradition. It also starts to engage students in practical aspects of ministry and in some reflection on their own person and ministry.
