Apply now to join in 1 October 2019

Application deadline: 10 September 2019

The Graduate Diploma in Transformational Development is a 2-year program and is conducted online with 1 face-to-face intensive held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


This program is designed for graduate-level Christian development and mission practitioners wishing to acquire and develop the skills necessary to reflect biblically and theologically on their work among the poor and oppressed. Competencies gained will help them tackle the complexities and challenges of their work as Christ-followers, especially in a culturally-sensitive environment.

Students will learn about the difference between secular development and a biblically informed approach, develop a framework for theological reflection to connect their faith and work, strengthen their inner spiritual life, explore the practical aspects of creating and maintaining partnerships, learn skills to enable them to practice sustainable development and be equipped to work in culturally and religiously sensitive contexts.

Our GDTD program is conducted online, with a 1 face-to-face five-day seminar.

  • No need for major work/ministry and family upheavals.
  • Studies are earthed in participants’ current vocational settings.
  • Some flexibility is possible.

This program is designed with contributions from World Vision International (South Asia and Pacific Regional Office), AGST Alliance, and Eastern College Australia, and graduates from the Masters of Transformational Development program, Eastern College Australia (in collaboration with Malaysian Care and AGST Alliance).
