The Faculty of Theology 

The Faculty of Theology at Helderberg College of Higher Education is responsible for preparing pastors for ministry in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. On completion of our four-year Bachelor of Arts in Theology degree, students will be eligible for employment and training as interns in the Conferences of the Southern Africa Union Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SAU). As an institution of higher education, accredited by both the Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA) and the Council of Higher Education (CHE), our graduates may find employment in the SDA Church globally as well as qualify for postgraduate studies at South African public universities. In addition to theology proper, students will be taught skills in areas that include pastoral counselling, evangelism, mission work and biblical studies.

The degrees offered at this institution are accredited by the Council on Higher Education and registered with the Department of Education of the Republic of South Africa since 2004.
