The Kingdom of God is looking for those who will go the extra mile and live a life passionate about the call to build His house.

Once you complete the first year of study you’ll have an opportunity to apply for our second year which is aimed at those who are passionate about taking what they have learned and applying it to building God’s house. It’s for those who want to become secure, spirit-filled and faithful leaders and will give you the chance to be deepen your faith through practical and internship ministry.

This is not for the faint-hearted. But it is for the Called!

Advanced Internship

As with our first year students, second year College students’ course comprises:

  • Weekly lectures
  • Chapel services
  • Daily devotions
  • Masterclass forums with key guest speakers
  • Serving weekly in your local church

Additionally, it will also comprise:

  • Weekly coaching
  • Specialised lecture modules
  • Preaching Masterclass sessions with Ps Dave Gilpin, exploring the art of communication
  • 1-2-1 mentoring with Lead and Ministry Pastors

Advanced Internship

The Second year is an Advanced Internship year that will empower you to take on board a significant role within a location of Hope City Church, not only completing assigned tasks, but leading others as part of the team.

This leadership opportunity is that perfect chance to grow in your own leadership gift and become a master in your chosen field, becoming a powerful contributor, advancing the church’s mission.

Church Planting Partnership

As a church one of our hallmarks is pioneering. We’ve decided not to wait until God turns up on our doorstep and tells us to go, we’ve got the Great Commission and we want to see churches planted throughout the globe, reaching people and introducing them to Jesus.

This Internship option allows you to partner with one of our International locations and pioneer with them to build the church across the globe.

Let’s say your first year has revealed to you that you’re a pioneer and your passion is to see the church advance in your lifetime, stretching far and wide. If that statement resonates in your heart then you’ll want to choose this as the focus of your second year.

The Second Year Church Planting Partnership will see you being posted in one of our many new pioneering locations. Head to Brussels, Belgium and be part of the newest location plant of Hope City Church. Or head out far and wide and join our Accra and KL teams.

During the year students will have the opportunity to: 

  • Intern alongside Lead Pastors and their teams in their posted location.
  • Monthly coaching.
  • Virtual lectures accessed through our online platform.
  • Opportunities to travel back to Sheffield for national conferences and masterclass events.

We know that with God by your side it will be the faith adventure you long for.

This Partnership will equip and empower you to meet new challenges and see God’s church grow.

C3 College

Whitefields Leadership College has a strategic partnership with C3 College in Sydney Australia.

In collaboration with C3 College, we have created a course that aligns to their Certificate IV (first year) ministry and theology course. This means students who have successfully completed one year of study at Whitefields Leadership College may have advance standing to proceed directly into the Diploma of Christian Ministry and Theology (second year) course at C3 College.

Maybe your second year could be spent abroad? This is an exciting, new and dynamic partnership one we feel perfectly links with our heartbeat and will broaden the experience, expectation and leadership of any student who adopts this route.

C3 College also has an articulation relationship with Alphacrucis College which can allow students to continue studying to receive a Bachelor of Theology or a Bachelor of Contemporary Ministry. Students enrolled in C3 College can begin their degree studies alongside their Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses. ACCREDITATION & VISAS – C3 College is fully accredited by the Australian Government as a Registered Training Organisation which has CRICOS registration.
