Clergy House
School of Enlightenment


A PATH Clergy School provides teachings in our church philosophies, including Human Consciousness, Universal Law, Spiritual practices, strategies, and tools. Our curriculum embraces both Eastern and Western Philosophies and World Religions as an important aspect of humanity’s varied belief systems. We believe a complete understanding of World Religion is crucial to our clergy’s realm of knowledge and perception in order to communicate and provide valued insight. Our program incorporates teacher, pastor and outreach minister classroom teachings, on-the-job hands-on training, and much needed skillsets providing graduates with the ability to lead in their chosen clergy path.


All clergy members are Pastors, and each Clergy path is a specialized path of study and calling. Clergy assignment to designated paths is based on the calling of each individual. The Church’s three Clergy paths are as follows:

  1. Pastor: The spiritual leaders of the church, responsible for leading church including services and ministering to the congregation.
  2. Outreach Minister: The spiritual outreach ministers of the church, responsible for the church’s outreach programs to the wider community.
  3. Clergy-Educator: The spiritual Educators of the church, responsible for development and implementation of education for clergy, congregants, and the wider community.
