  • Critically discuss and defend Christian faith and practice with personal integration and responsible theological thinking
  • Critically analyse and discuss the global history of the Christian faith with a particular emphasis on the nature of their own tradition
  • Demonstrate the personal and spiritual characteristics required of Christian leaders who will practice ministry in a local cultural context which is yet part of a global and diverse world
