Equipping a Generation to Live Like Jesus Lived & Do What Jesus Did
To see a generation of Spirit led, Spirit filled fruit bearing Christian youth & young adults become radical laid down lovers wholly given with reckless devotion to Jesus. They will live like He lived and do what He did while demonstrating and releasing the Kingdom of God into the 7 Mountains of society of the one or more of them they are called to which are religion, family, education, government, media, arts & entertainment and business.
University to the Nations (UTN) was birthed for the purpose of training, equipping, sending, and supporting youth and young adults to work with the ministries of Children’s Life International.
UTN is a ministry of Children’s Life International which is under the spiritual covering of The Fellowship Network, Irving TX with whom we have our group tax exemption.
God has led us to create a ministry, leadership & missions university that’s affordable for all with low cost ministry training & equipping along with personal discipleship and spiritual parenting and a chance for full-time ministry with Children’s Life International and or to be sent out into their mountain(s) of influence under the apostolic covering of Children's Life International.
UTN is a nondenominational school of the Spirit with Charismatic beliefs, which means we believe the gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit are still for today. We believe that all Believers that are Spirit-filled and Spirit led can do the works of Jesus with the Holy Spirit like in the Gospels and Acts.
A 2 YEAR UNIVERSITY WITH 2 SCHOOLS
1st Year- Discipleship School
Discipleship School teaches the students the foundations for a Spirit-filled Christian Life and how to live them out successfully in everyday life and ministry.
2nd Year- Leadership & Ministry School
Leadership & Ministry School is a lot more intense as far as studies and active hands on assignments. This school is the student's final preparation before graduating UTN and being sent out to begin plant y cells, house or micro churches and Children's Life Centers as a team member of Children's Life International.
MINISTRY TEAM DISCLAIMER
We do not promise that anyone will be asked to join our ministry team and work with us in full-time ministry. A student might be asked to begin the vetting process of becoming a team member if you do the work, show your sincere, meet weekly for Q&A with prayer, have proof of a Godly life and character and a real calling to ministry we will look at you. Along with that you will have to be on fire for Jesus, willing to forsake all to follow Him and become a laid down lover, wholly given with reckless devotion even unto death if need be and raise most of not all of your own financial support. Finally if you do well in your video conferencing interview, write a good one page single spaced paper on why you want to join the team and all of this agrees with the Holy Spirit and our team then there is a great chance you will be asked to join us for a six month trial period of more training with full-time ministry with us. Once that is accomplished then you will be asked to be a full-time team member of Children’s Life International and you can work on our Missions Base, in the local UTN and plant your own micro churches with our continued help, prayer and gentle oversite.

With each course the students will have 6 weeks to complete which includes proof of all homework assignments being completed and submitted through email for all books and or manuals in the course.
Students must complete the Discipleship School and the Leadership school in one year each equaling two years total. This gives the students the ability each year to chose when they might take a week or two off for a break or they can just go straight through all the courses.
