Welcome to the Morling College Community:
Morling College is more than just a college. It is a community of men and women, staff and students from diverse backgrounds, cultures and churches dedicated to knowing God and being equipped to serve. Morling College is committed to transformational discipleship where, as a community of believers, we love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Studying at Morling provides a balance between academic study, practical training and spiritual formation, knowing that such integration transforms people as whole persons.
Whether in times of triumph or tribulation, the students and staff of Morling College are encouraged to pray for one another in chapel services and prayer triplets in order to strengthen their relationship with God, each other and their families and friends. During the academic semesters there are Discipleship groups, chapel services and scheduled times of prayer. All students and staff are invited to gather together, as a family, to worship and celebrate the living God. Both full-time and part-time students have the opportunity to be involved in leadership roles in these services. Once a week at lunchtime the Transform Mission Spot is open for all students to learn more about mission, meet with cross-cultural workers and pray for our world. Students are also encouraged to enrol in the unit Transformational Discipleship (formerly Guided Spiritual Formation) to help guide their ongoing spiritual formation.
Regardless of whether you are studying full-time or part-time, Morling College invites you to be part of a learning, welcoming and supportive community of like-minded students and staff.
