About the Program

Admissions Requirement

The purpose of the JCTS Teacher Training Academy (TTA) is to prepare all people who aspire to become leaders (ministry directors, prayer chaplains, healing practitioners, teachers or writers) within Universal Foundation for Better Living (UFBL) affiliated organizations. Its mission is to ensure that all UFBL leaders are well-versed in the teachings of New Thought Christianity and the history of the Foundation.
The TTA consists of 5-terms (a little under 2 years). Applicants must have the ability to demonstrate an elementary familiarity with Basic Truth Principles, Bible History, Allegorical Bible Interpretation, and the works of Charles Fillmore and H. Emilie Cady.
Graduates of the TTA are eligible to become candidates for the Licensing & Ordination (L&O) Interview. Individuals who pass the interview will be recommended to the UFBL Board of Directors for licensing as a UFBL/JCTS Teacher.

  • Knowledge of UFBL Foundational Principles; Master Certificate desired​​

  • Recommendation of UFBL Senior Minister preferred.

  • Completion and submission of application packet​​​​ (including $100 non-refundable application fee)

The Summer of 2026 will be utilized to prepare students for their Licensing & Ordination Interview in October 2026. Official course schedule/calendar will be provided upon acceptance into the program.

"Each leg of the UFBL's Teacher Training Academy 2018 has been a blessing. Each teacher has opened my eyes even wider to my possibilities. It is like being in a love cocoon. Every step with every course I challenge myself to new spiritual heights."
