  9. 9. Revelation 3:20 Theological University PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Revelation 3:20 Theological University offers superior, multidimensional Christian Education to men and women who pursuit a life of service to the Lord through biblical standards of the Christian faith. We believe that comprehensive theological education is the ground work to establish exceptional biblical formation. Therefore, the University, its Board of Trustees, Faculty, and staff, focus their efforts to guide students to achieve their maximum potential as we build academic excellence and dedication to Christian education. This can only be accomplished through quality instruction, the study of theological concepts, the maturity and the cultivation of a spiritual life. Our programs are based on the commitment to offer a comprehensive professional training with the latest developments in the field of knowledge and the study of theology. Our programs seek to ensure that our students receive the up most training which will enable them to become ethical competent and spiritual professionals in their field of study. Our educational philosophy is based on our founder, Dr. Narciso H. Montas who believes that: ‘‘Without Education we are empty’ and knowledge is the tool for logic and reasoning; we become obsolete if we do not emphasize on education”. Education is guided by the spirit of love giving to the social spectrum, rather than an individual competition to be at the service of mankind”. Dr. Narciso H. Montas, Founder of Revelation 3:20 Theological University 1
  10. 10. Revelation 3:20 Theological University MISSION Our mission is to train men and women who will pursuit a life of service to the Lord through the biblical standards of the Christian faith. This will be achieved by providing our students with a superior, pluralistic, multidimensional Theological Christian Education. VISION STATEMENT Revelation 3:20 Theological University, will strive to be a model institution that will contribute to the improvement of our society, by training dedicated and spiritual Christian leaders who will carry our mission by promoting moral values based on the biblical foundations of the Christian faith. EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY Revelation 3:20 Theological University is committed to deliver Theological and Christian programs that broaden the education and improve the life of our students, who in turn will lead a life of service to the Lord. Our faculty and staff are trained professionals who have the experience in the different disciplines that are necessary to accomplish the educational goals of our students as well as support the mission and vision of our university. 2
  11. 11. Revelation 3:20 Theological University OUR HISTORY Revelation 3:20 Missionary Ministry and Biblical Teachings was established in the year 2000, following a close relationship with Anchor of Salvation International an affiliate of Faith Theological Seminary & Christian College in Tampa Florida. In July 2006, Revelation 3:20 Theological University moved to a new administrative facility located in Cutler Bay in Miami, Florida. Revelation 3:20 Theological University began a new phase in education and opened its mental health therapy center in 2007, from there its doors opened to the public with a new focus and emphasis in education. We became interested in making education a theme for new growth in this and established an affiliation with many scholars in order to bring our current project to fruition. Today, we continue as a four-year Bible college offering degrees in Theology, Education, Music and counseling. Our main campus is located in South Miami, Florida with the name of Revelation 3:20 Theological University. OUR COMMITMENT We are committed and strive to prepare students to make a difference to our society by providing an excellent academic education. We like to be inclusive by intergrading biblical foundations and bringing together a personality, skills, and gifts for the purpose of social empowerment wherever you live, work, or minister. We believe that “Education with a Higher Purpose is simply life and Freedom." It is not competitive knowledge but rather cooperative knowledge. We are committed to be a tool in equipping and forming students that will transform the world we live in.” 3
  12. 12. Revelation 3:20 Theological University ACCREDITATIONS Revelation 3:20 Theological University is a private, non-denominational Christian university accredited by the Florida Department of Education Commission for Independent Education, Transworld Accrediting Commission, the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA), and the National Association of Private Schools (NAPS). PRIVATE RELIGIOUS ACCREDITATION (Transworld Accrediting Commission) Revelation 3:20 Theological University (RTU) has chosen to associate itself with Transworld Accrediting Commission International (TAC) which exists to assure the quality and assist in the improvement of the institution or program that they accredit, High School, Certificate of Theology, Associate , Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. Degrees in Theology. They cover the areas of Arts, Christian Counseling, and Bible, and Ministry, TAC works within the shared Biblical parameters by establishing an organization to be a witness to our Institution creditability and monitor our performance and integrity. The Transworld Accrediting Commission International (TAC) is a professional non-profit church educational organization whose philosophy is to demonstrate accountability to the consuming public for education obtained in non-traditional evangelical institutions. This accountability is demonstrated by institutions that are accredited by TAC, having documented evidence of compliance with TAC standards of structure and governance, material resources, policies, faculty and curriculum. 4
  13. 13. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Revelation 3:20 Theological University (RTU) has chosen this method to proceed to full accreditation under TAC with our first level as an “Associate Member”. Although TAC is not a registered agency under the US Department of Education, most Christian schools seek private religious agencies to be accountable to, such as TAC. TAC has many biblical institutions under their commission and Revelation 3:20 Theological University (RTU) students can participate with these schools and ministries nationally and internationally. American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) AMHCA is a growing community of mental health counselors. They make a critical impact on the lives of Americans and give a voice to the profession of mental health nationwide.For more than 25 years, AMHCA has served the professional needs of mental health counselors. Some of the benefits in membership have helped us develop other areas as mental health counselor and our student’s status. AMHCA benefits assist providers their field by working toward recognition for mental health counselors under Medicare and better treatment of mental health counselors currently recognized by other federal programs. AMHCA is a dedicated source to our success and the growth of our students in the field of mental health. AMHCA will help you expand your professional knowledge, your network of professional peers, and, ultimately, your service to student’s and clients. 5
  14. 14. Revelation 3:20 Theological University National Association of Private Schools (NAPS) Recognizing Educational Excellence The National Association of Private Schools is a consortium of Christian Educators and Private School Administrators from across the United States and Canada. The Association is dedicated to recognizing and improving the spiritual and educational quality of Private and Christian Schools, regardless of size. Many of the finest schools in the country are not accredited, yet their students rank with those from the largest and best funded private and public school programs. A NAP seeks to recognize, with non-intrusive criteria, the integrity and quality of these programs.

DEGREE DESCRIPTIONS Latin honors are Latin phrases used to indicate the level of academic distinction with which an academic degree was earned. This system is primarily used in the United States, though some institutions also use the English translation of these phrases rather than the Latin originals. It is similar to the British undergraduate degree classification. Generally, a college or university's degree regulations give clear rules on the requirements to be met to obtain specific honors distinctions. These may be a specific grade point average, a requirement that the student submit an "honors thesis" or "honors project" for evaluation, a requirement that a student be part of an honors program, or graduate early, or a combination of the above. Each university sets its own standards, and these standards often vary greatly among universities. 17
  26. 26. Revelation 3:20 Theological University DEGREE CRITERIA Thus, comparing Latin honors across universities is often meaningless; the same level of Latin honors attained at different universities may actually indicate very different levels of academic achievement. Generally, a college or university's degree regulations give clear rules on the requirements to be met to obtain specific honors distinctions. These may be a specific grade point average, a requirement that the student submit such as a thesis or dissertation, a requirement that a student be part of an honors program, or graduate early, or a combination of the above. In addition to meeting the grade point average criteria the student must have not repeated any courses nor have being placed on a probationary status during his/her course of study. Listed below is the criterion for honor held at Revelation 3:20 Theological University: Graduate Level Criteria Type of Honor Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) Outmost Distinction 3.95 – 4:00 Distinction 3.60 – 3.94 Undergraduate Type of Honor Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) Summa Cum Laude (“ with highest honor) 3.96 – 4:00 18
  27. 27. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Magna Cum Laude (“with great honor)” 3.50 – 3.95 Cum Laude (“ with honor”) 3.33 – 3.49 19
  28. 28. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Honors and Conferment Structure These honors are almost always awarded to Undergraduates earning their Bachelor's, and, with the exception of Law School graduates, although some principles on Conferment has being avoided today these names are used in this terms; many Institutions have adopted these names in this structure and we also confer our Degrees in the same manner: Namely: Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Sigma Cum Laude Advance Standing & Honor Student: Are conferred like this: Cum laude: "with honour" (direct translation: "with praise") Magna cum laude: "with great honour" (direct translation: with great praise") Summa cum laude: "with highest honour"(direct translation: "with highest praise") Official Degree & Color Chart Structure This Academic Hood Colors List serves an important function for or set of graduation Academic Regalia (hood, tam, and gown). The regalia hood colors are typically include in four sections: shell fabric, velvet edge, satin field, and satin chevron. 20
  29. 29. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Official Degree & Color Chart Structure The color of the velvet edge is determined using our official degree color chart. That velvet edge hood color, sometimes known as Academic Regalia Inter-Collegiate Colors, represents the specific degree or discipline or program of study. The satin field and chevron (the hood lining colors) represent our university colors. The overall size and shape represents the type of degree: Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctoral (with the narrow end getting progressively longer with the higher ranking degrees). Finally, the fabric shell color simply matches the fabric color of the graduation gown, which is usually black but sometimes is another color depending on the degree-granting institution. Associate degrees use a special cowl instead of a hood. For the PhD degrees, rules regarding multiple degrees, and determining your field and chevron colors are the institution style in determining the colors of the conferment for that multiple degree or disciplines. 21

  32. 32. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Academic Regalia Inter-Collegiate Colors In determining your academic regalia colors, please note the following: All PhD degrees (as opposed to Doctorate degrees) use "PhD Blue", which is dark blue, in the academic colors. For example, a Doctorate in Psychology would include in your academic hood colors the color Gold; however a PhD in Psychology would use dark blue. If you are unsure if your degree is a Doctorate or PhD, please contact your administrative advisor to determine your precise degree title and academic regalia hood colors. UNLISTED DEGREE If you have multiple degrees, the rule is that you use only one hood and only one Degree/discipline color. You use the hood and color that represents your highest ranking degree (with Doctoral as highest, Masters as second highest, Bachelors as third highest, and associate as the lowest). If you have two different degrees at the same highest ranking degree, you generally use the most recently awarded degree as your hood. If you have an unlisted degree, there is no official color and it is dependent on the individual college or university to determine the color to be used for your hood. Typically, the most similar degree on the official chart is chosen. For example, if your degree is in an advance computer science field, usually the school chooses Science Gold for the degree color. 24
  33. 33. Revelation 3:20 Theological University HOOD LINING COLORS (FIELD AND CHEVRON) At Revelation 3:20 Theological University we understand the importance of knowledge. And with this knowledge comes and this information about the history of academic regalia and how it all started. Following a custom established in the 14th century, modern scholars display their academic accomplishments by wearing academic graduation hoods on their commencements together with their academic gowns and caps. Guidelines University regalia strictly comply with the guidelines set forth by the Committee on Academic Customs and Ceremonies, appointed in 1959 by the American Council on Education. The academic hood is comprised of a fabric shell (usually black), "degree velvet" and "school lining". The velvet of the hood represents your degree or the discipline of your doctorate. In addition to the degree colors, each school generally has its own colors. These "school colors" are represented by the colors of the satin lining in the back of the hood. There are literally thousands of color combination's to combine to get what is right for your doctoral hood or whichever hood you need Master, BA… they are all different and varies in disciplines. There are three additional colors that typically go into your hood. They are the shell fabric (usually black, but sometimes the color of your robe if your robe is a special color that your university uses), and the lining colors. 25
  34. 34. Revelation 3:20 Theological University UNIVERSITY FIELD Hoods are lined with the official color or colors of the college or university conferring the degree. More than one color is shown by division of the field color in a variety of ways. Most schools divide the color by using a single chevron. Occasionally, a school or university might use more than one chevron, no chevron but instead a single field color, an equal division, a reverse chevron, a straight bar or other methods THE OFFICIAL ACADEMIC CUSTOM CODE The official "Academic Costume Code and Academic Ceremony Guide" includes a sentence that reads as follows: "The various academic costume companies maintain complete files on the approved colors for various institutions." While we would really like to help you obtain this information, and hope to help you with any information in reference to you graduation regalia. All of our hoods are custom made to comply with your degree, faculty, and university / college standards. How do you wear a hood? The hood should be placed over your head so that it drapes off your shoulders and over the back of your gown. The velvet border should be on the outside as shown in the pictures. 26
  35. 35. Revelation 3:20 Theological University THE OFFICIAL ACADEMIC CUSTOM CODE Be sure the lining of the hood is turned out so that the color(s) identifying the institution which conferred your degree are prominently displayed. This can be done by turning the velvet trim to the outside at the back just below your shoulders. The cord on the back of your hood will keep your hood in place. The cord in the front of your hood is provided to keep the hood away from your neck, fasten the cord to a dress button or the gown zipper. What are the academic standards for a hood? Material. In all cases the material must be the same as that of the gown. Shell Color. Black, in all cases. Length. The length of the hood worn for the bachelor's degree must be three feet, for the master's degree three and one-half feet, and for the doctor's degree, four feet. The hood worn for the doctor's degree only shall have panels at the sides. Linings. The hoods are to be lined with the official color or colors of the college or university conferring the degree; more than one color is shown by division of the field color in a variety of ways, chevron or chevrons, equal division, etc. The various academic costume companies maintain complete files on the approved colors for various institutions. 27
  36. 36. Revelation 3:20 Theological University TRIMMINGS The binding or edging of the hood is to be velvet or velveteen, two inches, three inches, and five inches wide for the bachelor's, master's, and doctor's degrees, respectively; the color should be indicative of the subject to which the degree pertains (see above). For example, the trimming for the degree of Master of Science in Agriculture should be maize, representing agriculture, rather than golden yellow, representing science. No academic hood should ever have its border divided to represent more than a single degree. In the case of the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree, the dark blue color is used to represent the mastery of the discipline of learning and scholarship in any field that is attested to by the awarding of this degree and is not intended to represent the field of philosophy. Line Hood – Symbol of educational status Hoods are worn over the gowns to show your achievements at commencement events. The velvet on an academic hood represents the degree earned. The lining colors of the academic hood represent the school where the degree was earned. The size of the academic hood (both the length of the hood and the 28
  37. 37. Revelation 3:20 Theological University width of the velvet and lining) represents whether the academic hood is a doctoral hood, master's hood, or bachelor's hood.

It goes well beyond the mere form of propositional truth—it is, seamlessly lived reality in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Theology can ultimately fail in its purpose, if it ceases the sense of providing the church with essentials and saving norms will be altered therefore, theology is life—it is the story of God at work in human history to redeem people versus just the simple study of it. 39
