COMING UP AT THE CTP
Theology & Psychology
Transformation through Integration
We equip you with transformative skills and tools to foster mental
wellbeing and grow healthy communities
At the core of this Centre is our commitment to facilitate positive transformation in Christian leaders through
the integration of theology and psychology. We believe that bringing these two disciplines together is a significant advancement for the church and its connection with society at large. We exist to equip each other and to grow together as disciples of Jesus Christ as we integrate faith and work in our own contexts and contribute
to the flourishing of our communities.

The Thriving Christian Leaders Program 2021
We believe that all Christians are missional people who actively participate in God’s kingdom work. Every Christian communicates and lives out the gospel in her or his own context, work and family environment.
Regardless of whether you are serving in the “classic” vocations of pastor, youth worker, chaplain, counsellor and cross-cultural worker or whether you are a change agent in the medical area, business world, education sector, in politics, social entrepreneurship, and many other areas; if you seek to be “salt of the earth”, and long to effectively integrate faith and work in your own context: This program is for you!
We offer professional development opportunities to up-skill you to be more effective Christians in your context. We cater for varying levels of experience in mental health in our webinars, full-day workshops and intensive programs.
We offer integrative accredited degrees for credit or audit through the Melbourne School of Theology/Eastern College. If you are looking for more academic learning, our teaching is for you.
This is our CTP think tank community. Our team conducts research and evaluates our training programs. We also host conferences that relate to theology and psychology.
Our international team of professionals from Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA is currently positioned in different areas of Christian work as well as the health system, equipping us for successful integration of theology and psychology.
With our backgrounds in psychology, counselling and psychiatry, theology and spiritual formation and other related disciplines, we work at the forefront of integrative research and teaching, and offer a unique cross-disciplinary perspective to equip Christian leaders.
In our function as a centre of academic excellence, we focus on the delivery of workshops, webinars, other courses of study, and research opportunities. At present – and for the foreseeable future – we do not, and will not, offer counselling to individuals.
