RTC has some great options for study at our new Melbourne campus in Semester 2, 2017. If you are about to begin study, why not begin with one or more of these?

You can take this course on Tuesdays from 10.00am – 1.00pm, or straight after work, 5.45pm – 7.45pm with a third hour online. Taught by Rev John de Hoog, the evening class is a great option for people who work or live in the city.

A great subject for pastors, leaders and church members who want to understand the biblical basis for preaching, the basic principles of effective communication, and to be equipped with a sound method for sermon preparation. Dr Murray Capill will teach this unit as an intensive, from 21-25 August, with some online teaching in advance.

This team-taught intensive, featuring special guest presentations from Dr John McClean, Dr Peter Adam, and Dr Karl Deenick, will focus on the theology of the church, and its ministry and relation to the kingdom of God. A great unit for anyone wanting to think more deeply about the doctrine, life and ministry of the church.
