The Gateway School of Ministry

Character is higher than intellect. -Ralph Waldo Emerson




Gateway University is proud to present state-of-the-art immersion in consciousness studies within an academic institution.  The Gateway Ministry is both experiential and academic.  The program combines advanced spiritual initiation and academic excellence.  The breadth and depth of spiritual training is unmatched.  Gateway Ministers receive character building, personal transformation, and life-changing consciousness skills--in contrast to the dogma and limited book-learning of more traditional trainings.

Many metaphysical ministerial training programs do not offer training in counseling skills, though ministers are licensed to counsel.  The Gateway School of Ministry offers academic substance and rigorous training in pastoral counseling skills.

The Gateway School of Ministry is non-sectarian and pan-denominational, affirming all the pathways to God.

Upon graduation and licensure, Gateway Ministers are prepared for careers in pastoral counseling, coaching, teaching, spiritual healing, leading, and writing.  The licensed graduate can baptize, bury, bless, and marry.

The Order of the Seraphim Angel Ministry learn more

When I meditated on this Program before Dr. Marooney began teaching, I was told that 'This is the deepest, highest, most profound Angel Training that has ever been offered in the history of the world.'  Dr. Marooney's masterful teaching has confirmed my meditation.

-Rev. Dr. Judith Larkin Reno




Angels are sent by God to care for us during all phases of life, both the challenges and the celebrations. The mission of the angels is to deliver you into the Presence of The Most High. 

Angel Ministers are trained to step into this Radiant Presence and stand as a beacon guiding others into the healing and wisdom that result from personal experiences of Divine Love and God Union. 

Multi-faith and non-denominational, The Angel Ministry provides the training and tools for this personal journey of healing and unification, and then supports the Angel Minister in creating a unique ministry of service based on soul purpose and individual talents.

The curriculum is a brilliant blend of academic learning and spiritual experience including Angelology, Intuitive and Mystical Skills Development, Consciousness and Wisdom Technologies, Essential Spiritual Practices, and Ministerial Leadership Training that includes special guest speakers who are world leaders. 

This program culminates with a 4-day Retreat and Ordination Ceremony that is a life altering experience, calling you into union with your true being to claim your heritage in the Seraphim Lineage and the souls who are destined to come to you for healing. Feeling called to this Angel Ministry means that you are of the Seraphim Lineage and your soul is calling you into unity. 

Upon graduation and licensure, Angel Ministers are prepared for careers in pastoral counseling, coaching, teaching, spiritual healing, leading, and writing. The licensed graduate can baptize, bury, bless and marry.
