Rapha Deliverance University of Practical Ministry was dedicated in Phoenix, Arizona in 2009 after twelve years of conferences and special events taught by Bishop Dr. Jackie L. Green (West Coast Chancellor and visionary founder), and Apostle Ivory Hopkins (East Coast Chancellor). These ministry teachers of deliverance and prayer unified to release “balanced deliverance” across the nation. 


RDU is apart of Jackie Green Ministries-Enternational Prayer Life Institute.  JGM is not a church, but an international network and resource center that has been commissioned by the Lord Jesus Christ, to do an end time  apostolic and prophetic work through prayer, intercession and spiritual warfare!  Learn more about JGM at


The birthing of RDU  involves several stages.  In the first twelve years RDU Satellites in the USA and Malawi, Africa were birthed.  An RDU Satellite is a church, home cell Bible Study, ministry, school or Christian organization that is certified by RDU to house and teach, promote and hold regular courses/events on site.  Since 2009 RDU Satellites are in twenty sites and growing.


RDU is in phase two of development.  In this second phase we are expanding the University in Satellites and making our degree programs available online.  We will also provide specialized degrees in specific areas of ministry (i.e. prayer, deliverance, the arts, five fold ministry, etc.). RDU is not a traditional learning institution and presently is not accredited.  However, we will be pursuing accreditation in the near future, and is establishing accountability for academic excellence. 

History of RDU!  An international work of balanced deliverance!

RDU OBJECTIVES!   Intergral and effective ministry that transforms lives and regions!

RDU (God's University)

Accreditation in Process

  • RDU has chosen not to seek traditional or governmental school accreditation because we believe we should not allow secular institutions to dictate the qualifications for instructors or the programs for a Spirit-filled ministerial degree.

  • For this reason, RDU  is in process and has chosen to be accredited through Accrediting Commission International. As an independent accrediting agency, ACI helps the religious world obtain accreditation that is not government affiliated. The form of ministry accreditation provided by ACI is recognized by most churches, ministry institutions, and ministry organizations. All ACI member institutions around the world accept credits from other member schools if the credits apply to their programs.

  • ACI is an internationally known, non-profit, church educational organization.  They handle the accreditation of Christian theological seminaries, universities, and colleges throughout the world, providing supervision for almost 300 schools in 8 countries and in 38 states of the USA.

  • RDU is presently in the application process. RDU offers academic programs that are specifically designed to equip students who feel the call of God on their lives, and who wish to build a ministerial career or to further their specialization in Deliverance and Healing.

  • The articulation and acceptance of our credits or degrees by other institutions, including employers, must be determined by the respective institutions.

​​Accreditation is essentially a statement of approval.  It is a voluntary submission to high academic quality, accurate recording keeping and ethical policies and practices.  We believe that our university is a Kingdom of God University already accredited by the Kingdom of Heaven.

We are also willing to be accountable and approved by those who are known for academic excellence, and can help us build an effective and excellent higher learning institution to equip ministers and ministries of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.​
