I am honored God chose me to birth RDU. It has been a blessed journey that unfolds one day at a time, one conference at a time and even one faith walk at a time! RAPHA is the Hebrew word for the verb "rapa" which means to heal, make healthy, restore and is one of the names used to describe God.
We thank God that you have been led by the Holy Spirit to consider RDU as the school to transform your life and align you all the more with your calling and destiny. We are committed to academic excellence and equipping many generations by the Spirit of the Lord to take “balanced” deliverance and healing to their generation. It is our prayer to carry out the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ with no short cuts.
It is our mission and mandate to “Take the Whole Gospel to the Whole World.” Thank you for growing with us and fulfilling God’s vision for your life. We decree kingdom advancement, accelerated grace and power into your future as you assist RDU with transforming the world with the Kingdom of God!
God Bless You, Bishop Jackie Green
"30 Years ago, Dr. Jackie Green answered the call of God upon her life as a preacher and modern day Ezra, a ready scribe, reformer and transformer of the prayer lives of individuals, churches, cities through America and nations. As a spiritual midwife and pioneer for those stuck in "tradition," she preaches a fearless Gospel, prays no nonsense and like a modern day Harriet Tubman she has a national underground Spirit-filled railroad to set the captives from the kingdoms of darkness."
She is founder and Presiding Prelate over JGM Enternational Prayer Life Institute, Founder and Co-Chancellor of Rapha Deliverance University of Practical Ministry with Dr. Ivory Hopkins, Co Chancellor Emeritus, East Coast, and Founder and Prayer Commander of Watchdogs in the Kingdom and oversees the NTCCM (New Testament Council of Churches and Ministries, USA and Africa).
Bishop Green was licensed at the Second Baptist Church In Redlands, CA by Pastor Anthony Green, and ordained by the American Baptist Churches of the Pacific Southwest. She was set publicly as an apostle in 2002 and set into the Bishopric in 2006 by Archbishop Mark Dubois of Judah International, Mackinaw, IL.
Bishop Green released her autobiography (life story) in 2022, "Hidden on Purpose for His Purpose." She is married to Pastor Anthony Green, Senior Pastor of The Village SBC in Redlands, CA serving as Executive Pastor celebrating 50 years of team ministry and 50 years of marriage this year with four adult children, 16 grandchildren and many spiritual sons and daughters.

First from coast to coast and then the nations, saith God - through all means available: publication, media and internet - forming an army of warriors who will be armed and dangerous.
This will I use to execute my judgment against the enemy and bring the captives out of captivity and liberty to those that are bruised and wounded and release those who have been held captive to ignorance, by bringing them into the knowledge and wisdom of the purpose of God.
This I will use to reap in the harvest of souls, by activating the sleeping giant that will be stirred and brought forth by the vision I have placed upon RDU for my glory saith God. Unto you that are my leaders and pioneers of purpose I unify your hearts and spirit for such a time as this and will build a sure house and foundation with this university as long as I am exalted and honored in all that you do. Walk in the spirit of unity and watch and see Me perform my purpose through yielding vessels.
