One year PG Diploma:
RZIM plans to start a One year diploma program in Apologetics. 'This program would
equip to critically evaluate, and meaningfully engage, with contemporary challenges
to faith in Christ Jesus so as to effectively communicate the truth and relevance
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the context.' A team of experts including eminent
Christian leaders and Educationists are the consultants and architects of this program,
which would be modular in structure. A canditate would have to complete 10 modules,
apart from the integrated modules on Spiritual Formations, to gain the required
credits to complete this program. The programs would not only have the International
team of RZIM teaching, but would also include leaders of stature.
