... for in-depth training and equipping ...

 

There are 3 main Curriculum Awards, each being divided into half-size Associate awards so as to periodically recognize student achievement. Each Course builds on the skills and competencies of the former in a "nested" fasion so as to lay essential foundations and provide a study balance between Bible, Theology, and Practical understanding. The studies commence at a foundational Christian Education level and progress to the Ministry levels of Certificate and Diploma. Details are listed below.

             CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

NOTE: 1. ASSIGNMENTS.  Assignments are normally returned within a 3-week turnaround period.  Grades are awarded according to Logos marking formulas relating to each subject. Upon the student's request, Logos can list the question numbers (e.g, Question 78, 92, 93, 105, etc) that were marked wrong on his/her assignment so as to provide feedback. This request is a student initiative, otherwise we don't send out this information. Further, Students may, if they choose, then tackle the questions originally marked incorrect and resubmit (only the answers to the incorrect questions please) back to us in an email. We can then mark these and provide feedback as to whether they are now correct or not. Please note that the College must retain all marked assignments as EVIDENCE of the grade awarded to the student (auditors regularly check on these documents). Students therefore are advised to keep a copy of all their submitted answers. The student Grade cannot change beyond original submission, but working on wrong answers may assist the student in a learning process. If, upon a re-submission of the originally incorrect questions, the student answer(s) are still wrong, the student may email the Registrar again and ask what the correct answer was. Only the answers to this 2nd round of incorrect answers can be provided ... Logos College Marking and Score keys cannot be posted out of our office. In short, we are willing to assist you with feedback and help you to learn the subject area through this narrowing down process. Please contact the Registrar for further information if you need help. We value and appreciate your hard work and dedication.

 

NOTE 2:    CREDITS EQUIVALENT.    The number of Credits stated for a subject or course incorporates the total hours involved in all Training and Assessment activities, the process of which normally varies from college to college according to their curriculum documents. As a rule of thumb, 1 Logos Credit is equivalent to 15 hours of lecture classes, activities and assessments. Of these 15 hrs, at least 10hrs per Credit is minimally attributed to class lectures (depending on the subject content and complexity), and the remainder to practs, engagement with assessment questions, and the like. We have calculated this formula so as to correspond with the Government approved Christian Ministry Training Product terminology employed in the State of Queensland, Australia, of which courses can be offered either in 'on-campus' or 'distance studies' format; the distance studies format providing full notes (or Text) materials in leiu of class contact. Hence, Logos is able to provide distance studies either in a full e-learning capacity as Independent students, or in a Training Centre capacity in which regular classes are provided to groups using Logos materials such as full notes and teacher powerpoints. The Logos Diploma is seen by some to be equivalent, or more, to a Bachelor degree in some other college contexts. Further, with extra assessments and teaching, some Logos subjects are being used up to Master degree level in some accredited college courses.

A Further Note on Practicums

LIST OF APPLIED PRACTICUMS:

  • Children’s Ministry
  • Communication and Homiletics
  • Discipleship and Mentoring
  • Evangelism and Church planting
  • Ministry or Music and Worship
  • Pastoral Care
  • Projects and Activities Ministry
  • Teaching Ministry
  • Ministry to Women/Men
  • Youth Ministries
  • Church Administration 
  • Personal Choice Practicum (your preferred area, with Logos permission)

All of these practicums require a supervisor or mentor in helping to guide and monitor your progress. The practicums involve 20 or more hours of on-the-job activity (plus an estimated 10 hours for planning, preparation, submitting report, mentoring, evaluation, feedback, etc, adding to approx 30 hours duration in total for the subject) and apply to the more advanced courses such as the Diploma in Christian Ministry and some specialized leadership training courses.

TOPIC RESEARCH

This enables the student to select an approved topic of personal interest and to write a 5000 to 7000 word paper on his/her findings according to certain basic guidelines. A supervisor will guide and mentor your progress.

FIELD PRACTICUMS (1-6)

These practicums, of a shorter duration than the Applied Practicums, require a student to be involved in any program, activity or function in the local church, para-church organization, community or missions. Normally, at least 10 hours of on-the-job- activity must be recorded and authenticated (plus an estimated 10 hours for planning, preparation, submitting report, mentoring, evaluation, feedback, etc
