About the Program

Admissions Requirement

Previously Ordained Clergy

The Ministerial Training Program integrates principles, theory, and practice that focus on cultivated peak performance, leadership, and success in the church. Students are given the tools to build a strong biblical, historical, theological, and ethical basis for ministry. Satisfactory completion of this program qualifies the student to be a candidate for Ordination by the Universal Foundation for Better Living (UFBL).

The Ministerial Training Program offers two tracks; the Previously Ordained Clergy (POC) Track and the Ordinand Track. 

The UFBL Previously Ordained Clergy Track is custom-designed and can be completed in a minimum of 18 months and a maximum of three years. The track is specifically designed for people Ordained as ministers by other religious organizations seeking Ordination by the UFBL.

The Ordinand Track is specially designed for men and women seeking Ordination within the UFBL. In this track, a Ministerial Candidate must complete a project approved by the UFBL. A three-year Ministerial License is issued to complete the project.

"This process of becoming an Ordained UFBL Minister has stretched me and made me put everything I think I know about metaphysics and running an organization to the test! I am excited about going before the Licensing and Ordination Board this year!"
