Run a Local Church College
Join Your Church's LCC
WHAT IS AN LCC?
An LCC is a ‘Local Church College’ - in other words a ‘pop up college’ hosted in your church. An LCC is a vehicle for you or your church liaison to be involved in the training and equipping of your leaders in your local church context, while utilising world class content and teaching from AC.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Alphacrucis (AC) provides your students with quality course content through Moodle access to online training videos and written material. AC marks all the assessments - so you or your liaison do not need formal academic qualifications to run an LCC. And you can watch content online at a time that suits your schedule.
Students gather once a week for 1-2 hours for discussion and application of content, in whatever ‘pop up college’ setting you choose: as casual as the coffee shop or a lounge room or as sophisticated as your auditorium or training rooms.
Mentoring is provided by your church leadership, helping students who study to apply their learning to their lives and also to your local church context. All courses include subjects that require practical ministry experience - so students get to serve and reflect on ministry areas in your church.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT?
An LCC enables you to participate in the forming of your leaders. An LCC takes the stress out of content creation for your leaders, so that you can mentor effectively. Your leaders will benefit from formal study in many ways – discipline is created, mindsets are challenged, lives are transformed and characters developed. Students can gain accreditation for the subjects completed and go on to further study in the future if they choose.
Alphacrucis University College is proud to join in a range of partnerships with local churches to serve them and their communities and outwork our vision to equip leaders to transform the world.
Check out our Local Church Partnerships to see the range of churches we are already partnering with.
AC wants to partner with your local church and help you effectively train your people for Ministry and Leadership. We are confident these courses will benefit you and your church because the content and practical elements of the courses can be applied from the outset to your local church setting. The church liaison and Senior Pastor decide which level course (whether a Certificate IV or Higher Education Diploma) suits the requirements of the students attending.
