Since 1892. The College was founded in Dublin.
To prepare Christians to serve in leadership in a variety of roles including (but not exclusively) pastoral, missionary, youth, ladies' work and RE teaching.
The Preparation for Ministry Course. There are two degree paths - Bachelor of Divinity or Bachelor of Theology.
The University of Chester.
There are approximately fifty students. There is an active postgraduate programme with forty students and also upwards of 125 evening class students.
By student fees (approximately 75%) and donations (approximately 25%) from churches and individuals. Without the support of the churches, fees would be too high for students to afford.
Ministry Partnership Scheme - this is a partnership between the College and the churches (or another organisation) to give a student up to two years' experience in an assistant or apprentice role. The scheme offers a small amount of financial support but can only do so if the College is fully funded.
In the past four years 26 students have begun ministry with a Baptist church or mission agency.
