United Divine Science Ministerial School

c/o Rev. Dr. Christopher Bazemore
1400 Mercantile Lane, Suite 220
Largo, MD 20774
Ph. 301-322-2447

The United Divine Science Ministerial School was established in February 1999 to embrace the works of Malinda Cramer, the founder of Divine Science, to train practitioners and ministers, to teach Spiritual Law, and to teach a very practical approach to organizing and running a church. In addition to the great spiritual focus of the School in comparison to similar schools, it has quickly become famous and popular for its strong emphasis on the practical approach versus the philosophical and for its joyful approach to teaching versus a more stoic approach.

The United Divine Science Ministerial School is incorporated in the State of Maryland and operates in accordance with federal, state and municipal laws. It is an institution of learning in metaphysics and religion dedicated to teaching knowledge of God, right living and spiritual growth primarily from a Divine Science perspective. Its purpose is to license teachers and practitioners and to ordain ministers. The School offers correspondence courses in metaphysics for those beginning their studies to become Divine Science practitioners and ministers and for those seeking personal spiritual development. Summer sessions are also offered in residence annually at the School headquarters in Largo, Maryland and at the Summer Sessions of the New Thought International Alliance Congress.

The curriculum catalog lists courses and related information pertaining to practitioner and ministerial training and general spiritual development.
