Alumni Stories

Aline Rohr

Bachelor of Applied Theology Student

Over the past eighteen months, I’ve found Carey to be a truly unique place. It is a community where you are welcomed as you are and are embraced no matter where you are at in your faith journey.

It provides the opportunity to really dig deep into the bible and Christianity in a way that can often be difficult in churches today. While being taught and supported by enthusiastic and caring lecturers, you get to walk alongside other students who are equally asking and wrestling with the ‘big’ questions as they seek out what God has in store for them.

With its strong focus on living life as Christ’s followers, theology applied is inherent to the learning and knowledge one can gain at Carey.
