How to Apply
We envisage that applicants will come from a variety of backgrounds. Some will be church leaders of the future who wish to develop a ‘tool kit’ of skills and experience to better equip them in their local situation. Others will be established church leaders looking for incremental growth in their current setting, by renewed vision and sharpening of practical skills. All the appplicants should be passionate about Christ and making Him known to the nations and have a vocation to church growth and leadership.
This year we welcome applicants with a first degree in Theology, as well as those without a formal theological qualification.

Applications for the 2013-2013 academic year are now open.
All applications should be submitted by the end of June 2013. Reviewed and short-listed candidates will be forwarded to Wycliffe Hall, who will then conduct their own process, involving an online application form and interviews, either face-to-face or by telephone.
Because of the academic component of the CTG, we expect all the candidates to have completed an undergraduate degree in theology and present a good level of English language fluency (both written and verbal). Therefore, all non-native English-speaking applicants need to satisfy one of the following requirements:
- TOEFL (paper-based): overall score of 600 with a Test of Written English score of 5.5
- TOEFL (internet-based): overall score of 100
- Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency (CPE): grade B
- Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE): grade A
- European Baccalaureate: score of 70% in English
