A welcome from the Principal

Christian theology applied.
It’s my privilege to introduce you to Moorlands College, which has been training men and women for 70 years. There isn’t a continent in the world where you won’t find our graduates serving the Lord Jesus.

Dr Steve Brady

Now, studying theology can be about learning answers to questions like, “Does absolute subjective idealism still leave us with a sense of the divine?” Whereas, studying applied theology leaves us asking, “What does spirituality have to do with 21st century life?” It helps students share the Gospel in many contexts; from a gathering of 15 year-olds in central Birmingham who come from a different religious community, to a group of senior citizens.

So why should you consider coming to Moorlands College?

Applied theology is how we move from theory to practice, and we are intentional in helping folk think that way right from the word “Go!” We have a passionate commitment not only to inform, but to transform. So, for this reason, we apply the acronym SPAR to all we do: Spiritual, Practical, Academic and Relational.

“Applied theology is how we move from theory to practice, and we are intentional in helping folk think that way right from the word ‘Go!’”

We aim to produce graduates who are spiritually growing Christians; people who want to know God. We believe in equipping our students practically with the skills to make them competent in their vocations as pastors, missionaries, youth workers, teachers—or anything else God calls them to. We also believe it is honouring to love God with “our minds”, as Jesus said. So we want to help you think academically for yourself and give you the tools and resources to do that.

Furthermore, Moorlands College encourages relational maturity, with a diverse and international community where you can develop your people skills.

Dr Billy Graham, the internationally-renowned evangelist, is reported as saying that if he had only three years to serve the Lord, he would invest two of them in study and preparation. We believe an investment of time training at Moorlands College will equip you for a lifetime of service for Jesus Christ.

With my best wishes in the Lord Jesus,
