Sydney youll be making Hillsong Church your church home during
your training. If you already have a home church in Sydney wed
love you to remain actively involved there, although there will be
some times throughout the College year when well need you at
Hillsong Church for College related activities. A key aspect of your
training is your involvement in practical ministry, where you get to
put your training into practice, developing leadership experience, a
track-record of fruitfulness and a legacy of changed lives. You will
be involved practically in various ministry teams during the week
and in at least two services on the weekend.
