INSTITUTE OF THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY
ARIZE's Honorary Doctor and Master Degrees
Why does ARIZE give an Honorary Doctorate & Masters Degree?
We seek to recognize those in spiritual ministry or those who have given their time, talent, and tenacity in providing human services for the needy and the lost.
We at ARIZE, in this beginning stage of this exciting program, did not require any financial compensation for such degrees because these Honorary Doctoral or Master Degrees are to initially lift individuals and bring attention to the communities and the world, those individuals who are deserving of such which have not been formally recognized by either the religious community or the social communities. Since the desire still exists to do such i.e., in the giving of an Honorary Doctor or Master's Degree (honors one's achievement in ministry and life progression of mankind) we have further agreed to have each candidate for either the Honorary Doctorial Degree Program or the Honorary Master Degree Program to present to the Institute a monetary agreement that is discussed at the time of the application and the approved documentation for administration achievements.
Such Honorees are either presented by the Founder of Arize or individuals associated with the Founder in some form or fashion who offer the nomination of qualified individuals in question who have not been awarded for their services rendered for many years. We would first discuss with the person nominating the candidate prior to any application or documentation being accepted.
There are many religious and academic institutions that give Honorary Doctoral Degrees to individuals who have exhibited in the religious community or social community, visible and nonvisible services.
Procedures and Requirements of ARIZE Honorary Doctorate or Master Degree
On recommendations of the President/Founder of Arize School of the Five-Fold Ministry, its Board of Trustees may vote to confer honorary degrees on distinguished individuals. Those mentioned above should award an honorary degree only in recognition of extraordinary and lasting distinction.
