The Universal Life Church Academy offers several Doctorate Degrees, including Honorary Doctorate Degree in Pastoral Care (Ph.D) with professors from renowned and accredited universities. The course is available on DVD or CD with transcripts.

Being a pastor does not mean only providing the religious community with support and encouragement they need. Pastoral care also means taking care of the religious life of people, improving their spirituality. In addition, pastors often perform various consultations for community clergy.

People, who would like to be engaged in this activity, need to undertake an appropriate training in theology and psychology and earn a doctoral degree to be able to practice this profession legally. The Universal Life Church gives this opportunity to all interested people by providing them required courses with transcripts on CD or DVD. They will learn how to help people by presenting them spiritual values hidden in God.

The future pastors will study Bible principles and will learn to trust God as supreme Ruler of the heaven and earth, who can help them in their service for others. They will also teach others how to pray and study their Bible and will encourage Church members to take part in worship of congregation. Pastors will play important role in their community, leading people to Jesus through their example.

They will also know how to support the needed and comfort those, who are in trouble, taking care of both their physical and spiritual needs.

Mission Statement:

"The Universal Life Church World Headquarters defends the unborn, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, educates the young, welcomes refugees, and cares for the sick, both at home and abroad. They believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God."


"A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life. No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people, in the experience of fraternal love. We are designed with a dreaming brain and a hopeful spirit; it is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication, and courageous action to bring that dream to life."

Do you wish to pursue a vocation in ministry - become a minister, get ordained or serve as a wedding officiant?
