CAP-GOWN DIPLOMA

Financial Investment in your Doctor of Divinity Program"

Our costs for Permanent Records & Registration of your Degree" are as follows:

Please consider that the investment of “About A Day’s Wage” to add the “Title Doctor” to your name for the rest of your life . . . is the greatest financial investment you will ever make!

> > > $11 for purchase and custom-printing of your "Degree" ($7 for additional signed copies) It is a "Beautiful Degree Certificate - You will be so pleased"


> > > $30 to form your "Official Credit-Bank Record" from your College records and our evaluation of Life Experience Credit


> > > $39 to "Register your Doctor of Divinity" with legally operating Non-Profit Corporations for Education in the States of Florida, Virginia, and Ohio
> > > $20 to make Permanent File and maintain your College Transcript & Degree indefinitely for your future verification


> > > $11 for Shipping, handling and mailing your Degree to you, First-Class, Hard-container, Insured ($Double for overseas insured mailing)


> > > We ask a donation of some amount to help us maintain this ministry that is presently 100% volunteer (funded somewhat like the Gideon's Bible Society if you are familiar with their setup).

YOUR DOCTOR OF DIVINITY DEGREE PACKET ORDER



______ I can afford $111 as a "Love Offering" to cover my Doctor of Divinity costs.

Additionally, I wish extra copies of my Degree at $7 each (for Church Office, Home, and or Study, etc.,) totaling $______ for _____ extra copies

______ I CANNOT afford my Degree costs all at once, but will provide Three Love Offerings of $37 as I can.

Please consider that the investment of “About A Day’s Wage” to add the “Title Doctor” to your name for the rest of your life is the greatest financial investment you will ever make!


NOTE
**We will NOT take your money and use it to send a Degree to someone who has invested nothing . . . and we will NOT take someone else's money to send a Degree to you!


NOTE: If you chose the last option, we will Issue “Online Credentials: upon receiving your first Love Offering, issue a Doctoral Confirmation Letter Sealed, signed-&-stamped and suitable for framing upon receiving your second offering, and both copies of your degree at the third offering.

[NOTE: As a Child of God in the richest nation on Earth, . . . If you are “let-down” by not getting everything handed to you on a silver platter - purchased, printed, and mailed all with you investing nothing . . . do you really have a right to be a "Welfare-Christian"??? . . . And furthermore . . . do your always want to be a "Welfare-Christian"??? We will help you breakout of this sinful, poverty stricken state . . . if you will allow us. Please see the “Wealth-Building God’s Way” Files]


Please consider that the investment of “About A Day’s Wage” to add the “Title Doctor” to your name for the rest of your life . . . is the greatest financial investment you will ever make!


Is It At All Possible?*


Lastly, we ask you with our whole heart - if it is at all possible - to include a "Love Offering" . . . to allow a "Brother or Sister" in India, China, Africa, or South America, to receive their Credentials from Cambridge Theological Seminary International.


** SIMPLE ORDINATION takes 5-10 years and costs thousands of dollars in many nations, including England & Germany, and much of Europe. For us to Ordain someone in such a Third-World nation can DOUBLE their income IMMEDIATELY . . . for every year all the rest of their life!!!

(Many nations in Africa average about $750 income a year, about $2 a day, where used cars are $60,000 and gasoline is $15 a gallon!)


Just $20 will purchase, print, package & mail their Ordination Credentials to them!


Getting a Doctorate for those who qualify in a Third-World country from one of the Cambridge Theological Seminary Satellites can "increase their income FOUR-FOLD" and allow a minister to have an automobile to use for his congregation which GREATLY empowers the whole Church family!!!


(Think how limited, how restricted and how poverty-stricken you would be . . . if neither you - nor anyone you knew . . . or anyone living within your area . . . owned any transportation beyond a bicycle!!!)


Our average Pastor from overseas:

> > averages 300+ in weekly attendance,

> > average age is mid-30's,

> > over 90% of them have started their own churches,

> > Most feed, clothe and care for homeless children in their areas.

> > Many live on less than $2.00 a day where gasoline is $15 a gallon (and in some areas still less than $1-a-day)

Sadly, many American Applicants can send us pictures of million dollar Church facilities, yet only cover the barest expenses of enhancing their credentials with a Doctor of Divinity.

Really Great News! ... Did You Know?**



> > > World's Largest Worship Center is in Lagos, Nigeria. It seats over 50,000, with standing room (common in Africa) for about 15,000 more - they fill it multiple times each Lord's Day!


> > > World's Largest Church Congregation is in Seoul South Korea. It is a great system of "House-Churches" having over 800,000 members, started by one "Poor Christian Lady who spent all day every day, spreading the Gospel Door-to-door, and inviting converts to her home for food & fellowship and discipling. -


> > > A Central African Spiritual Congress draws from 6-to-8 million Believers every year, and is growing!!! (obviously out of doors, fluctuates with weather) These are the largest gatherings in the History of Humanity!


> > > Africa is sending Missionaries profusely, one organization - the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has planted over 400 churches in the USA in the last 10 years, with plans for many more!


> > > A Pastor they (RCCG) sent to Russia in recent years already has a Church of over 30,000 members in former Communist city of Kiev!


> > > One group has purchased over 700-acres north of Dallas, TX, for a USA National headquarters with a goal on a new Church in EVERY American Community by 2025 . . .


. . . also purchasing the top story of a skyscraper in Dallas Texas . . . just to use as a "Prayer Tower" . . . where believers are praying around-the-clock for a great Revival of Repentance in the USA!


> > > Over 40,000 new Converts a day in China, in a very powerful "House-Church-Movement!" There are now more "Born-Again Believers" in China than any other nation!


> > > Over 30,000 new Converts a day in Africa, and Africa is now the fastest growing Continent, population-wise, period!


> > > Over 20,000 new Converts a day in South America, and increasing rapidly with several of the world's largest local Churches there, having over 100,000 members & weekly attendance!


> > > Over 12,000 new Converts a day in India, and increasing rapidly! (WE are just opening our Second Seminary there now!)


We are putting together a page with pictures of overseas ministries we support . . . if your ministry is independent and you are looking for some great ministries overseas to support, we have a great bunch of Ministers, many of whose 50-plus nations that our founder, Bro. David Paul, has personally visited over the last 30 years.


Though less than 1 of 25 third-world Ministers have a website, and you can see some pictures and a bit of info on some of them here. If you want more information in considering whether to support them regularly or to visit them, please call our office at 740.685.2159

Pictures of Some Ministry Partners




We saved the BEST NEWS for Last!

USA Ministry CREDENTIALS are "Worth-more-than-GOLD!"

This is true in so many nations - even some in Europe as we stated above!

> > > In many lands it takes 5-10 years to get "Ordained-&-Licensed to Preach & Teach and costs a small fortune. Now this is also true for Denominations in the USA, EXCEPT the GREAT difference, Americans can preach, teach and witness WITHOUT being Ordained.

Though we are losing our freedoms rapidly in the USA, very few nations have the freedoms we do.

> > > Many other governments, however, do not allow people to even "speak" the Gospel, or even address a "Senior Citizens Luncheon" . . . WITHOUT BEING ORDAINED!"

> > > In many lands people are not allowed to "discuss or represent the Gospel to others" . . . in any fashion . . . or hand out brochures.

> > > Even in England, it takes years to get Ordained, and costs from $6,000 - $27,000 dollars - in a nation that has an average income considerably less than the USA . . . they, too, are EXTREMELY restricted on what they can do without being Ordained.

> > > Much of the world today "claims" freedom of religion - and folks are free to believe - but Governments are "Crushing Christianity" by controlling

[A] WHO can preach,

[B] requirements for Ordination,

[C] requirements for Ministerial License.

*** These things are coming to the USA as well . . . "IF" . . . WE DO NOT STAND AGAINST THEM!!!

Please - if you can - help us to get them USA Ordination Credentials & License. In many nations Ordination is government regulated, very expensive and time consuming to get. Almost all nations recognize American Credentials and this allows them to start a Church, do weddings, funerals, and hold public Evangelistic Crusades.


A beautiful Certificate of Ordination with a Ministry License a Doctor of Divinity Degree from the USA does wonders for most of them in their home towns - even allowing some to teach in local colleges!!!

Remember the Golden Rule . . . as if YOU lived in Africa, India or the Amazon Region!!!
