About

Carey Baptist College is a well established tertiary theological education institution serving the Baptist Churches of New Zealand, and the wider church and wider New Zealand community.

Carey offers a range of NZQA approved qualifications in applied theology, as well as a range of training options which sit alongside academic study for those called to train and equip themselves in leadership for mission or ministry.

About Carey

Carey is a learning community focused on providing the highest quality theological tertiary training to Christians wanting to explore their faith more. While we have gained a reputation for being a research-led academic institution of quality, we direct this excellence towards an applied learning which enables graduates to serve and think and lead in a way that advances God’s mission in the world.

We offer our own Bachelor of Applied Theology degree, a Master of Applied Theology, and supervise PhD theses in theology for AUT University. We provide specialist training for those preparing for ministry and mission leadership including: pastoral leadership, youth pastoral leadership, children and family, inter-cultural and pioneer leadership.

Our graduates have gone on to become pastors, mission co-ordinators, youth leaders and church planters. Others serve in ministries such as chaplaincy, advocacy, non-profit organisations, or continue within the marketplace.

While we serve the largely evangelical-charismatic family of churches in the Baptist Union of New Zealand, about 40% of our students are drawn from other Christian streams.

This is our story

Alumni Stories

Rob Stacey

“After several enjoyable years of ministry, I sensed I needed to be better equipped to engage scripture, faith, mission and culture for those God had called me to. Like many I came looking to complete a degree and to gain a qualification. What I received was a nurturing and formational education for faith-filled living and leadership among Gods people… not to mention a renewed passion for the Gospel and its transformative and eternal impact through Jesus. Carey was the right choice.”
