Jamilian University of the Ordained

The Church educates those who are candidates for ordination to its various ministries. A university for the ordained, theological college, divinity school, and seminary are maintained and supported for the training and instruction of candidates for the ministry and for ministers themselves.
     Men and women who intend to enter the ministry are given suitable religious instruction and trained for the duties of their ministry. Following satisfactory completion of the prescribed courses and fulfillment of established requirements, individual candidates may be recommended for appropriate ordination.
     None of the prescribed courses in religious and theological education and training are regulated in any way by municipal, legislative, civil, or otherwise secular agencies.
