The Core Project is a Christian community and training programme that equips students with the core of what is needed to live a fully integrated life, laying a foundation for following Christ in all of life, for the good of the world.
This programme offers students the opportunity to enroll for a year of low-demand but high-impact discipleship and training, which is designed to enrich your studies, centre your faith, and equip you for a life of service and leadership.
Core is co-curricular and redemptive:
At the heart of The CORE Project is community. The project is a collective – an expression of the body of Christ, working together to better understand how we live faithfully as Christians in every sphere of society. This is not an individual endeavour but demands deep relational connections that will last a lifetime.
R130 per term or R495 per year. Includes a set book, dinners, retreats and more.
The programme begins on Tuesday, 20 February 2024. It is composed of 3 tracks run over two years. In each year, participants will engage in:
Year 1 (Track 1): Understanding the Story of the Bible.
We study an overview of the biblical story and develop skills to understand and interpret the Bible.
Year 2 (Tracks 2 and 3): Living the Good Life
Track 2 (in the first semester) focusses on best understanding how we integrate our Christianity with living in the modern world, and the contemporary issues that each of us faces. Track 3 then zooms into the specifics of each participant’s particular vocation, dealing with questions of how one discerns this, and what this practically looks like for each of us.
Successful completion of a year of Core will be rewarded with a certificate that endorses your participation in the programme components. This can form part of the cultural-activities section of your CV.
R130 paid at the start of each term, or R495 per year if paid in advance.
This fee is heavily subsidised and includes the cost of all the educational elements, the set book(s), twelve evening meals, and catered retreats.
Numbers are limited, so sign up early to avoid disappointment. If cost is an obstacle, there are limited partial scholarships available.
