About Christian Heritage College

CHC is a fully accredited private higher education provider located at Carindale, Brisbane, that aspires to model a Christian higher education alternative. CHC exists to re-imagine how we think about human flourishing, vocation, calling and the integration of faith and learning across all fields of human endeavour.

About the role

CHC has offered higher education courses since 1986 and is student centric in its focus. The Lecturer/ Coordinator in Christian Studies at CHC provides students in the Schools of Education and Humanities, Business and Social Sciences with the core Christian Foundations units undertaken during courses at CHC. The position is a combination of academic (lecturing 2 units); administrative duties as required of a course coordinator; and supporting students' spiritual care as required.

The position reports directly to the Dean, School of Social Sciences. However, as the core Christian Foundations units have a College-wide role in developing and sustaining Christian thinking across all CHC programs, the Lecturer/ Coordinator in Christian Studies will also report to the President of CHC and from time to time liaise with the Deans of other Schools of the College.

  • Keeping up-to-date with theoretical and empirical research in area(s) of expertise;
  • Encouragement of spiritual growth and development of students and colleagues, and engaging in other activities in pastoral care or spiritual formation of students; and
