Training for Life

Based in the heart of STC Sheffield, one of the largest and most vibrant churches in the UK, and with nearly 20 years experience, STC College offers innovative and cutting edge training for young adults; to empower and inspire them to grow as leaders and disciples of Jesus so that they fulfill their potential.

STC College provides an exciting opportunity for young adults with a heart to grow in leadership and discipleship to study for a year, developing in both character and skill, as well as in their faith. The one year programme includes theological teaching, active engagement in mission (with opportunities in both the UK and overseas) and the benefit of joining one of three streams that make up the year long course.

College Formation Day

THE COLLEGE FORMATION DAY ON A TUESDAY IS SPENT TOGETHER AS A WHOLE COLLEGE EXPLORING TWO OF THE MAJOR THEMES RUNNING THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE THAT IMPACT EVERY AREA OF LIFE: IDENTITY AND PURPOSE.

Through the teaching and investment received on the College Formation Day, students will increase their biblical knowledge and explore how this can be put into practice on a daily basis. The focus is on developing Godly character.

Three Ministry Streams

The three ministry streams, Form, Worship Central Academy and Youth Leadership, are designed to encourage students’ growth as leaders and disciples of Jesus in more specific areas of ministry through teaching, practical workshops and professional coaching.

Form

Form is a ground-breaking and dynamic year of discipleship, leadership and mission training. We believe that society needs people of character and calibre who are ready to live out their faith; men and women who are prepared to follow Jesus, make a difference and be part of the transformation of society.

Student Weekly Schedule

On Tuesdays all students spend the day together on the College Foundation Day, exploring themes of identity, character and discipleship.

Every Thursday students continue to develop their skills and grow as a disciple on one of three specific tracks, through a variety of in-house teaching, guest speakers and professional coaching.

In addition, there are a limited number of placements available on different ministry teams at the heart of STC Sheffield where students gain valuable experience serving on a fast-paced, pioneering team.

Monday, Friday and Saturday are free days for students to find paid work to support themselves financially (Wednesday is also available for students not on placement). Ideally one of these days should not involve any paid or church work and be set aside for time to rest in the midst of a busy weekly schedule.
