  • 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. 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.

  • 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. 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).

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. 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. 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. Private and Christian Schools are concerned about communicating the educational quality and academic excellence of their programs. People want to know, if the school is accredited and if the teachers are certified, Increasing State and Federal regulations may soon impact all of our schools. Our Membership and accreditation with the National Association of Private Schools will help our school build an image of excellence, integrity, and credibility. “We at Revelation 3:20 Theological University understand the Philosophy of a scholarly practitioner and the program of study. The National Association of Private Schools cannot bestow excellence; it can only recognize and approve the goals of education.” 6

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. 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

  • 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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

Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Associate Degrees CPE111 Leadership The following course discusses several important aspects of leadership including a description of what leadership is and a description of several popular theories and styles of leadership. Leadership is the “process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task. Definitions more inclusive of followers have also emerged. "Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary to happen." leadership needs to be distinguished from posturing. During this course the student will focus on topics such as the role of emotions and vision, as well as leadership effectiveness and performance, leadership in different contexts, how it may differ from related concepts (i.e., management), and some critiques of leadership as generally conceived. This course undertakes the study of curriculum foundations in ways that not only closely examines current curriculum structure and orientations, but also rethinks the nature of curriculum construction. As part of the overview in foundations, the course will equip students with skills (possibilities) to plan, evaluate, and implement curriculum. “Planning,” “evaluation,” and “implementation” are technical terms for thinking, conceptualizing, analyzing, and living, aesthetic, and culture. Ministry Leadership provides a context for integrating classroom theory with practical ministry experience, all under the guidance of a leader currently doing ministry. 83
  • 92. Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Associate Degrees CPE112 What to do in Times of Crisis A crisis is a state of imbalance disruption and discomforts that occurs and is affecting someone close to you. It is a collapse in the ability to respond to an event or trigger that can be destructive. Crisis comes in the life of people and depending on the circumstances and degrees there are warning signs, behavioral, emotional, and social. Crisis also comes by the abuse or evidences of alcohol and drug addiction. CPE113 Discipleship In this course you will learn the concepts by definition, a disciple is a follower, one who accepts and assists in spreading the doctrines of another. A Christian disciple is a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ. Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christ like. This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God. This requires that we be in the Word daily—studying it, praying over it, and obeying it. In addition, we should always be ready to give testimony of the reason for the hope that is within us (1 Peter 3:15) and to disciple others to walk in His way. 84
  • 93. Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Associate Degrees CPE113 Discipleship According to Scripture, being a Christian disciple involves personal growth characterized by the following: 1. Putting Jesus first in all things (Mark 8:34-38). The disciple of Christ needs to be set apart from the world. Our focus should be on our Lord and pleasing Him in every area of our lives. We must put off self-centeredness and put on Christ-centeredness. 2. Following Jesus' teachings (John 8:31-32). We must be obedient children and doers of the Word. Obedience is the supreme test of faith in God (1 Samuel 28:18), and Jesus is the perfect example of obedience as He lived a life on earth of complete obedience to the Father even to the point of death (Philippians 3:6-8). 3. Fruitfulness (John 15:5-8). Our job is not producing fruit. Our job is to abide in Christ, and if we do, the Holy Spirit will produce the fruit, and this fruit is the result of our obedience. As we become more obedient to the Lord and learn to walk in His ways, our lives will change. 4. The biggest change will take place in our hearts, and the overflow of this will be new conduct (thoughts, words and actions) representative of that change. The change we seek is done from the inside out, through the power of the Holy Spirit. It isn’t something we can conjure up on our own. 85
  • 94. Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Associate Degrees CPE113 Discipleship 5. Love for other disciples (John 13:34-35). We are told that love of other believers is the evidence of our being a member of God's family (1 John 3:10). Love is defined and elaborated on in 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. These verses show us that love is not an emotion; it is action. We must be doing something and involved in the process. 6. Furthermore, we are told to think highly of others than of ourselves and to look out for their interests (Philippians 2:3-4). The next verse in Philippians (verse 5) really sums up what we are to do when it comes to everything in life: "our attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus." What a perfect example He is to us for everything we are to do in our Christian walk. 7. Evangelism - Making disciples of others (Matthew 28:18-20). We are to share our faith and tell nonbelievers about the wonderful changes Jesus Christ has made in our lives. No matter what our maturity level in the Christian life, we have something to offer. Too often, we believe the lie from Satan that we don't really know enough or haven't been a Christian long enough to make a difference. Not true! Some of the most enthusiastic representatives of the Christian life are new believers who have just discovered the awesome love of God. They may not know a lot of Bible verses or the "accepted" way of saying things, but they have experienced the love of the living God, and that is exactly what we are to share. 86

Law 54 is one of the most advanced legal efforts globally to address domestic violence through comprehensive legislative and social reform. The gender-based perception and attitudes of those charged with enforcing Law 54, however, are conspicuous and pervasive, limiting its impact on women's lives, autonomy, and independence. The Violence against Women Act similarly seeks to address domestic violence in the United States by encouraging increased social services, and law reform grounded in focusing on the obstacles women face in accessing services and legal assistance. This Article proposes that effective legislation must recognize each woman individually and her entitlement to full participation in society as an equal. CPE115 and CPE11 Church I, II The branch of theology that is concerned with the nature, constitution, and functions of a church Ecclesiology (from Greek ἐκκλησίᾱ, ekklēsiā, "congregation, church"; and -λογία, -logia) is the study of the theological understanding of the Christian church. Specific areas of concern include the church's role in salvation, its origin, and its relationship to the historical Christ, its discipline, its destiny, and its leadership.

  • 96. Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Associate Degrees CPE117 Stewardship The true definition stewardship is a person using every talent and repeatedly sacrificing desires to do the right thing. The meaning of Christian stewardship has been completely confused over the years. People must understand that Christians are called to be good stewards all the time, not just on Sunday morning. The meaning of stewardship, when it comes to relationships, means that a Christian is not taking another for granted and instead is giving 100% to the relationship. It shows the utilization of everything that the Lord has for each member in that relationship. When it comes to money, using it and spending it wisely, in a way that would honor the Lord with time, relationships, and money is the best course of action to become a responsible Christian.

When we came to the close of the Old Testament we were aware that a large portion of the prophetic sections is at least partially unfulfilled. Also, many of the sacrifices are not explained to us in the Old Testament. Thus, it is a book of unfulfilled prophecy and unexplained sacrifice, so all of these Old Testament prophecies and pictures can be placed under these four headings: King, Servant, Man, and God. When you come to the Gospels, you find that these represent exactly the fourfold way in which Christ is pictured.

During this course the student can relate and put to work what is good for the individual and for society, in order to establish the nature of obligations, and duty in the ministry.

MPM311 The Spiritual Essence of the Pastor (Jesus) An Advance course in the Master’s program that is designed to study of the life of a pastor with emphasis on Jesus, his behavior his major events, and themes of his teachings. There are some who think that the “pastoral office” was a later development long after Jesus, something dreamed up by the early church in order to meet changing leadership needs. A more accurate understanding, however, is to see Jesus as the first and Chief Pastor of the Christian church. Although there are several terms used for the pastoral office in the New Testament, pastor in English is the equivalent of the word shepherd. Jesus is referred to as the Shepherd of the church in the Scriptures. After Peter exhorts the elders (an early title for pastors) to “tend the flock,” he then refers to Jesus Christ as the Chief Shepherd (I Peter 5:1-4). Jesus, who calls Himself the Good Shepherd (John 10:11-14), later calls upon Peter in light of his denials to confess his love three times and exhorts him each time to “Feed My lambs (sheep)” (John 21:15-17). Jesus, therefore, not only instituted the pastoral office for His church but he is also her Chief Shepherd or Pastor. 196
  • 205. Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Master Degrees MPM312 The Value of Diligence in Pastoral Practices An Advance course in the Master’s program that is designed to provide a practical framework of standards, good practice procedures for pastoral duties every pastor must understand the value of diligence in the fundamental principles of the word of God in order to know what is correct, pure and good in the Ministry in which he presides. This course is based on the premise that "all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness, in order that the person of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Tim 3:16-17). Thus, we will like that each person entering pastoral duties understands the fundamental principles of the word of God in order to know what is correct, pure and good in the Ministry.(3 credit hours) MPM313 The Master visit the Pastor An advance course of the Master’s program to know the basic foundations how does one look for a pastor who can serve as the model for the formation of future pastors? We could look to the many faithful pastors currently serving the church in order to have a clear picture of whom we want our seminary students to be like someday; or we could survey congregations in order to ask what they would like to see in their pastors. Although there are some merits into such investigations, an even more important place to start is to look to Jesus as the model of a pastor. In Jesus we see the Shepherd who is the model for future shepherds and learn much about being a faithful shepherd.(3 credit hours). 197

  • 209. Revelation 3:20 Theological University COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Master Degrees PLM301 The Book of Psalms The Book of Psalms consists of 150 psalms, each of which constitutes to a song or songs though one or two are atypically long and may constitute a set of related chants. When the Bible was divided into chapters, each Psalm was assigned its own chapter. Psalms are sometimes referenced as chapters, despite chapter assignments postdating the initial composition of the "canonical" Psalms by at least 1,500 year. Though most of the psalms are believed to have been intended for singing (some even include instrumentation and the names of tunes to sing to), none includes any form of pitch-related musical notation, so it is impossible to determine the tunes to which the psalms were to be sung. (The Hebrews were known to have or use musical notation.) SLF301 Problems of Self Control Self Control and problems of self control affects our in behavior in a daily basis many forms, often so potent, so animal, that it seems impossible to resist. Eating too much, drinking too much, spending too much or letting the heart rule the head. We get instant messages from deep in the gut that resonates through the mind, trying to dictate our behavior. One of humanity's most useful skills, without which advanced civilizations would not exist, is being able to engage our higher cognitive functions, our self-control, to resist these temptations. Psychologists have found that self-control is strongly associated with what we label success: higher self-esteem, better interpersonal skills, better emotional responses and, perhaps surprisingly, few drawbacks at even very high levels of self-control. 201

Soteriology means different things to different people. Buddhism views salvation as a death of desire. Hinduism sees salvation as an end to samsara. Muslims surrender themselves as they repent and atone for their sins while Sikhism looks to one's personal meditation and discipline to achieve union with God. But what about Christianity? What does the Bible teach about salvation?

  • 227. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Sexual Harassment Revelation 3:20 Theological University we recognize that is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person’s sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general. Sexual harassment in education is unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature that interferes with a student’s ability to learn study, work or participate in school activities. In the U.S., it is a form of discrimination under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Sexual harassment involves a range of behavior from mild annoyances to sexual assault and rape. The definition of sexual harassment includes harassment by both peers and individuals in a position of power relative to the person being harassed. In schools, though sexual harassment initiated by students is most common, it can also be perpetrated by teachers or other school employees, and the victim can be a student, a teacher, or other school employee. Sexual harassment of students by teachers or other school employees can cause particularly serious and damaging consequences for the victim. While sexual harassment is legally defined as "unwanted" behavior, many experts agree [Who?] that even consensual sexual interactions between students and teachers constitutes harassment because, they say, the power differential creates a dynamic in which "mutual consent" is impossible. Both victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex. 219
  • 228. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Sexual Harassment Although the law doesn’t prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted). The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer. At Revelation 3:20 Theological University we take “sexual harassment” serious therefore, we as a religious institution belief in moral values and the respect in human beings and appropriate behavior. Sexual harassment is intimidation, bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. In some contexts or circumstances, sexual harassment may be illegal. It includes a range of behavior from seemingly mild transgressions and annoyances to actual sexual abuse or sexual assault. Sexual harassment is a form of illegal employment discrimination in many countries, and is a form of abuse (sexual and psychological) and bullying. For many businesses, preventing sexual harassment, and defending employees from sexual harassment charges, has become key goals of legal decision-making. In contrast, many scholars complain that sexual harassment in education remains a "forgotten secret," with educators and an administrator refusing to admit the problem exists in their schools, or accept their legal and ethical responsibilities to deal with it (Dziech, 1990). 220
  • 229. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Human Resources At Revelation 3:20 Theological University Human Resources department is dedicated to fulfill the important task of the organization. Our Human resources department has the overall responsibility for implementing strategies and policies relating to the management of individuals (i.e. the human resources). Human resources is a relatively the function in organizations that mange the ‘welfare practices of its employees and student’s. At Revelation 3:20 Theological University administrative management activity, coordinating a range processes and the 'personnel function' is one of our activities that progressively becomes the usual function in the university and we like to express that function gracefully. Revelation 3:20 Theological University as Multinational Corporation, reflecting the adoption of a more quantitative as well as strategic approach to workforce management, demands management and greater competitiveness for highly skilled workers. Our organization is available and devoted to the achievement of the workforce capacity by placing strategies to draw a clear concept in the development of our organization. – Although this perspective furthers the ongoing research into more strategic approaches for our university and continues to be our goal in development within our organization. We are trying to apply efficiency focus to develop a response within the faculty, staff and student’s so that we can trace and track our university balance and see what we are lacking in services. At Revelation 3:20 Theological University we like to establish a relationship movement, rather than just a business by itself. These relation movements are the interchangeable part of personnel selection, apply training, and manage leadership within the organization, development techniques, and leading multinationals extensions, and gradually, this university will spread with sophisticated policies and processes that have a central focus in management via a personnel department composed of specialists and generalist teams. 221

  • 236. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Mission My Mission During his preparation the Holy Spirit guided him to look at Mathew 28: 16-20 (The Great Commission) – “Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”” This Word is our first step in making the commitment with Jesus Christ who has commanded us to announce the virtues of the Lord in the world. Our faith in the vision was established in Habakkuk 2:2, “Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it”. In November 2000, Reverend Montas had a revelation of God. The Lord spoke to him and presented a path that had a sign on it that said Revelation 3:20, for this I have called upon you, so that you may knock on the door and preach my word. So that the world knows that through you I wish to enter the heart of our humanity. Then he showed him another path, where he saw all people of different cultures and race. They followed him and he looked back, he saw them exiting from dark places. At that point, Reverend Montas remembered what his life was like prior to knowing the Lord. The Lord then asked, do you remember this? What I did with you, I want to do with others. Teach them my Word, and prepare them as I did you, and continue to do. Guide them and tell them that I sent you so that they may come to know me as their Savior until the end. 228

  • 249. Revelation 3:20 Theological University Volunteer and Community Service Reasons to Get Involved Lend a helping hand Welcome to Revelation 3:20 Theological Volunteer program and community service at Revelation 3:20 Theological University we want you to feel connected, with activities that are simple things can bring the community together. One of the most satisfying, fun, and productive ways to unite people is volunteering for community service projects. Volunteerism sets a good example for your ministries, Church, or school and helps the community to recover with your help. •It makes you feels good, worthy. The satisfaction and pride that come from helping others are important reasons to volunteer. When you commit your time and effort to an organization or a cause you feel strongly about, the feeling of fulfillment can be endless. •It strengthens our community. Organizations and agencies that use volunteers are providing important services at low or no cost to those who need them. When a community is doing well as a whole, its individuals are better off, too. •It can strengthen your family as well as mine. Volunteerism is a great way for church, students, and families to have fun and feel closer. But many people say they don't have the time to volunteer after fulfilling work commitments. If that's the case, try rethinking some of your free time as a church member, student or family. You could select just one or two projects a year and make them a church, student, or family tradition for example, making and donating gift baskets to care facilities for the elderly around the holidays, feeding the homeless, visiting the hospitals, or the incarcerated. 241
