Postgraduate students

Postgraduate research in ministry and theology is strongly encouraged and supported. There are many areas relating to the Australian context and international concerns that would benefit from close and thoughtful examination.

Postgraduate students are encouraged to speak first with the Post Graduate Coordinator of ACD.

See the Graduate Centre section of this website.

Rev Kevin Sarlow

Kevin has been associated with the Adelaide College of Divinity for 13 years. He has been an adjunct teacher, distance education assessor and curriculum designer, post graduate researcher, and postgrad student representative.

After serving in six Uniting Church placements over thirty years of ministry, I am now a full time third year PhD student. My area of doctoral research is concerning irony in John’s gospel, for which I won an Australian Postgraduate Award. My two main passions are to contribute to biblical scholarship, helping to achieve effective Christian outcomes, and to equip women and men for Christian life and ministry in the Church.
