Do you want to grow deeper in your relationship with God while gaining ministry skills and bible knowledge?

We run a nationally accredited Bible College right here in Point Cook, facilitated by our own church pastors and leaders.



A key component of the vision of Lightpoint Church is to RAISE generational disciples so you can be RELEASED into your God given potential.

One way we do this is by offering a nationally accredited Certificate IV in Ministry (Leadership) program run right here in Point Cook.

This program combines the teaching of key Australian leaders, through online lectures from Alphacrucis College, the national training college of the Australian Christian Churches (ACC), with the coaching and facilitation of our own church pastors and leaders.

You will study and learn together with fellow church members and participate in placement subjects right here at Lightpoint Church.



The Certificate IV in Ministry is the ideal course if you are looking to take your practical ministry experience to a new level. It combines strong biblical knowledge with opportunity to develop your ministry and leadership skills in a practical way. Learn from experienced recognised ministry leaders who will mentor and equip you for greater ministry opportunities.
