Celebration of Scholarship

Carey is proud to be a researching community. The Celebration of Scholarship is an opportunity to acknowledge faculty and student work.

“At Carey we believe that the God of mission is at work in the world by the Spirit to renew people and places in Christ. Our calling is to equip Christian leaders with the convictions, competencies, and capacity to participate in that mission, bringing gospel renewal in churches and communities across Aotearoa and around the world.”
