Jobs | Stirling Theological College Registrar


‘Forming God’s people for leadership mission and ministry’

Stirling Theological College (Stirling) is searching for a senior level leader and manager for the position of Registrar. It is expected that the successful candidate will have an understanding of the needs of developing leaders and ministers for a wide range of traditional and emerging pastoral and missional areas of ministry and vocation as well as the imagination to help Stirling align with that future.

Stirling is the national College of Churches of Christ in Australia and a national partner with Churches of Christ Vic/Tas. It was founded in 1907 as the College of the Bible. It is a member College of the University of Divinity. The College has a reputation for a range of courses in theology, pastoral and spiritual care, pastoral supervision, chaplaincy studies, ministry formation, counselling as well as the Catalyst vocational course. Its courses in the higher education provision (HEP) sector are currently offered through its agreement with the University of Divinity (UD).

Stirling is committed to being biblically-based, theologically reflective and ‘generously orthodox’. We value bringing the deeper story of Churches of Christ to cooperative ecumenical partnerships and dialogue and seek to relate theology to public and private life, Christian ministry and mission and to Australia’s diverse community and beyond. We promote intellectual rigor and academic excellence. We see a core contribution in the development of leaders who can establish, form and guide communities of hope and compassion.
