Thousands of leaders trained.

Since 1948, Alphacrucis (AC) has equipped thousands of Christian leaders worldwide.

Now a multidisciplinary University College, AC graduates are making an impact in businesses, classrooms, churches, and not-for-profit organisations.

Our vision is to be a global Christian university, transforming neighbourhoods and nations.

Pioneering the way — AC Breakthroughs



"Pop-up" Colleges

With AC, churches can run a “pop-up college” inside their church – we call this Local Church College, where students learn through our self-paced, online courses and combine this with face-to-face application and opportunities to serve locally, relevant to their local community context and needs.

Teacher Training  

AC partners with schools across Australia to train "classroom ready" future teachers, in cadetships where students learn whilst being placed inside a school, observing and contributing to classrooms alongside senior mentor teachers and leaders.

Double Degrees

With the average person making 3 to 7 career changes in their lifetime and "side hustles" becoming the norm, AC allows students to combine Theology with Business, or Counselling and Entrepreneurship with Ministry - so our graduates have greater career options and greater ability to make an impact.
