NOTE: The LEG Program will be supplanted by the Emerging Leaders Program in 2018.
Leadership Equipping Grants (LEG) have two objectives, one to equip a church to grow its ministry by being ably provisioned to serve its assembly and community and to provide opportunities for students undertaking a biblical degree to lead a ministry of the church, thereby gaining pactical experience.
LEG’s are available to associate and acknowledged community churches in Tasmanian and Victoria seeking a leader to deliver upon the first objective, that are not able to fund a resource of this magnitude.
LEG’s are available to students studying a bibical degree at a recognised and approved university teaching biblical studies, with a right to work in Australia.
CCCVaT will fund the LEG on a dollar for dollar basis (50%) at approximately 60% of the BU VIC Stipend rate plus superannuation and a 1% allowance for work cover for a maximum of 1040 hours per annum and for a maximum of four years.
LEG’s are available for the term of study up to maximum period of four years. It is expected that the student will have completed the majority of the course during this time and attend the employing church.
For a complete list compliances please download the Guidelines.
