Postgrad Students

Carey Research Conference 2021

The 2021 Carey Graduate School Research Conference showcased the cutting edge research of our current thesis students.  We hope that attendees were inspired to consider joining the Carey postgraduate community and that the day demonstrated that postgraduate study is not just for the academic elite.

“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.”

– John Tucker, Principal
