Calvary Leadership College exists to create an environment of intentional growth for your discipleship, ministry and leadership journey. For more than 40 years, Calvary Christian Church has been committed to training people to fulfil God’s purposes in both a local church and community context.

Through a combination of classroom learning, hands-on ministry experience and powerful retreat and conference experiences, your faith, knowledge and confidence will grow and strengthen, preparing you for the work God has prepared for your future.

Make a quality decision to invest in your faith journey at Calvary Leadership College. For now. For future.

Former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln famously quipped, ‘Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.’ I’m convinced that one of the most profitable investments we can make is the investment into our own personal, spiritual and leadership development.

Time spent in preparation is always time well spent.

Calvary Leadership College exists to train everyday people
for effective Christian living and leadership, preparing you for significance in your chosen sphere of influence. Whether you see your future in full-time vocational ministry, in business, education, the arts or medicine – regardless of your future calling – I want to encourage you to make the quality decision to enrol at Calvary Leadership College in 2023.

Through the classroom environment, internship opportunities and exposure to world-class ministry, Calvary Leadership College will sharpen your mind, enlarge your heart and equip your hands, so you can be used by God in a greater way in our generation.
