"36 years of Christian Education, ministry preparation experience"

Amora Deliverance Theological Institution continues to enjoy its God given mandate to "equip the saints to work the ministry."-Ephesians 4:12  Since its inception in the late 60's under the visionary founder, mentor and anointed vanguard leader, Apostle Arturo Skinner, Chief Apostle of the Deliverance Bible Institute and the Deliverance Evangelistic Centers worldwide, we have continued that journey.  Celebrating the education and development of various ministry gifts, such as, apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors and teachers, church administrators and auxiliaries, the establishment of places of worship, as well as issuing degrees at every level of Christian education.  Our eternal motto of "never a graduation, always a continuation" is the single most core value that has guided and driven us since our continued journey in 1981. 

​    Get ready for the journey and challenge of your life.  We anticipate your arrival.

Yours because of Christ,

​Dr. Lonnie Sesssoms, Jr., Ph.D.


Florida Christian University grew from Florida Theological Seminary, founded in 1985, by the first president Rev. Dr. Harold L. Shindoll, ThD. The seminary was the visionary foundation of Florida Christian University. Undergraduate and Graduate students in “Biblical Studies,” “Pastoral Leadership,” and “Theology” may have their diplomas with the title of either “Florida Christian University” or “Florida Theological Seminary.” These “Biblical Studies,” “Pastoral Leadership,” and “Theology” courses will apply for a degree for graduation from either “Florida Christian University” or “Florida Theological Seminary.” In the beginning academic programs were limited to classes at the Orlando campus. But distance learning education programs by video, independent study, and online provided for the university’s Global Outreach to meet the growing student interest. Upon the death of its founder Dr. Shindoll in 1998, his wife, Mrs. Dr. Floralee A. Shindoll, PhD was elected president and later President Emeritus. In 1999 Dr. Anthony Portigliatti PhD, was elected President and Chancellor with substantial institutional growth in the academic programs and global outreach which included University programs. The University promotes global outreach distance learning education programs by video, independent study, and online. The University supports the development of both campus and distance learning education programs with qualified faculty and use of state of the art technological infrastructure. Courses are offered in English, Spanish and Portuguese. The University develops adjunct instruction in different areas with the participation of international adjunct instructors invited to these events. Florida Christian University is the center of ministerial development and support for Florida Theological Seminary, American Ministers Association and Global Reach Christian Church.
