Join the Men of UCM

Welcome to Universal Church of the Master

Since 1908 Universal Church of the Master (UCM) has nurtured development, encouraging people to use their innate spiritual gifts. Dogmatic teachings may limit individual growth; we therefore encourage spiritual activities for the enhancement and support furthering spiritual awareness.

A primary focus of UCM is to provide education and support for individual ministers to practice within legal boundaries while remaining connected to Holy Spirit. They make manifest in the world an alternative for those individuals resistant to rigid dogma and practices but who are alive to compassionate awareness, to the continuity of life, love and the connections between worlds.

Each person travels their own path in the light, but connecting to other groups and individuals with similar paths is helpful.

We provide an environment which supports communication and companionship for individuals who are committed to service, growth and enhancing their personal journey.

Please feel free to explore our web site for more information about our organization.

Our Invitation

  • At UCM we welcome our entire community, beyond church services. Hundreds of adults and children from around the world join together to learn, to heal, to serve, and to grow spiritually.  We strive to share the gift of abundant life with every person in our community, so that lives may be transformed through Spirit.
  • At UCM we value the warm fellowship Spirit provides, to build authentic, caring relationships in our increasingly disconnected world. We share meals together, we gather in fellowships, retreats and Community Groups. We value the belonging with unconditional love that Spirit provides each of us.
  • At UCM you’ll find us serving with a loving heart wherever we may be. We volunteer in many different capacities and support different charities through our local ministers and charters.  We appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate the significant love Spirit has given us and we find joy in giving back in gratitude.
  • At UCM you will find many opportunities to equip yourself and others for abundant spiritual living. Please know that you are warmly invited and deeply cherished as a member of our family.
  • At UCM you will find a vibrant teaching and learning community that will equip and support you in a ministry practice. We also offer the opportunity to have your current metaphysical ministry legally and spiritually covered under the umbrella of a historic Church ministry.

Diversity is Essential for our Spiritual Growth

As a spiritual and educational community, we are dedicated to eliminating barriers that arise from race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, culture, religion, linguistic diversity, ability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, personality, learning styles, life experiences or other human characteristics.

Thoughts from the President

Dear Members,

Hello and welcome to the Winter edition of UCM Headquarters Highlights.  As you may know, I am now blessed with the position of President of UCM as of a November 6, 2015, unanimous election by the Board of Trustees.

We live in a time of expanding horizons, especially that of consciousness, and I see my work as helping to expand the spiritual and educational base of our ministry.  UCM is not a local or regional effort, our work is global – to help bring about the global inner transformation of humanity as we enter the Golden Age prophesied by so many ancient races.  Those of you in the ministry who have come this way before and are yet here again in the dharma of service to humanity.Certainly, it is an interesting time for all of us: I am the first male president in almost 40 years and the only president who is not a local resident near UCM Headquarters.

I love this time of year as we enter the holiday season – mostly because it brings family together to share warmth and love of community.  In whatever way you may express it, I wish you a joyous holiday!  From my own background in Christianity, I say “Merry Christmas”! to mean the awakening of the Christ within you.

We had a membership meeting on December 2, where I was installed by Rev. Debbie Uharriet.  Rev. Uharriet has done immense work behind the scenes as president of UCM to help set the course for our expanding ministry.  I am profoundly grateful to her and to the Board for their support and trust.

Of note at the meeting, the Board has moved the bulk of our savings from a high-risk portfolio to a much lower risk status because of what we saw as volatility in the market.

The Bylaws have now been revised and updated!  Those of you who have been following this know that it has been an arduous and lengthy process.  Whew!

Rev. Doti Boon is the Chair of the UCM Annual Meeting, May 14th, 2016, and she has laid out great plans for a spectacular 3 days.  So don’t sit on the sidelines!  If you have something to offer or can assist Rev. Doti in any way, please let her or any board member know.

I will be emphasizing a strong foundation of UCM through spiritual development, education, sponsorship and community of our ministers.  And I will be putting that forth in future communications.  There is much more to come!

Dear Members of UCM, I am profoundly honored to be of service in this position of trust. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any Board member.

From my Heart, Blessings,

Rev. Richard Jelusich, Ph.D.

UCM President

*Sudden onset of drug and/or alcohol abuse

*Impulsive behavior

*Memory Problems

*Poor concentration

These 4 steps may free you of destructive behaviors and change your life.

2. DETACH them from yourself, your family, where ever they are hiding.

3. RELEASE EarthBound Entities into the Light.

4. Protect yourself and STAY CLEAR of attachment by EBE, negative energies, inter-dimensional beings, ETs, residual energies, etc.

A UCM Layperson and Reiki Master, Gail Harlow is an experienced Earth Bound Entity Release Technique (E.B.E.R.T.) trainer and a qualified speaker with field experience. She completed her E.B.E.R.T. training in the early 1990s with Rev. Corky Whitacre, founder of E.B.E.R.T.  Gail has assisted Corky on many cases and at conferences. Gail utilizes E.B.E.R.T. techniques when doing field casework, which includes house clearing, personal spirit releasement, and paranormal investigation. She has taught classes on metaphysical subjects as well as remote viewing at the S.A.F.E. Place and the Center for Creative Living starting in the late 1980s.

     Gail has extensive training in remote viewing. She trained weekly with graduates of Major Ed Dames technical remote viewing training for nine months in the mid-90s before being invited to train with the Farsight Institute’s Prudence Calabrese located in Georgia in the late 1990s.

     Gail balances the technical aspects of her differing modalities with a strong spirituality base and sense of humor that coalesces into a well-rounded lesson deliverable.

* In Calgary, Alberta the Rev. Deirdre Leighton offers - Quantum Light Breath Meditations (developed by Jeru Kabal) through UCM AB - dates TBA -
The Quantum Light Breath is a highly focused breathing meditation process that greatly accelerates the user's personal transformation by bypassing the conscious mind and releasing the old programs directly from the subconscious. It basically eliminates the need for analysis, painful emotional experiences, years of therapy or growth groups and unfruitful meditations. It usually takes the user into an expanded state of consciousness. Universal Love is experienced as a reality and not as an unreachable concept. These is a deep connection to the Universal Intelligence - Source - God.
* The Rev. Deirdre Leighton also offers a book study of The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ - with ministerial students and the general public in my home Thursdays at 2:30 pm.

Welcome to the UCM Book Nook with Rev. Doti Boon
     Each quarter I will be reviewing books I have read and enjoyed. These are books you want to snuggle with on a soft sofa, hold in your hand when you go to the kitchen and peer into the refrigerator, read in the sun next to the ocean, pull out of your tote when you are on an airplane and because of it, experience a much shorter flight:
Book Review:  "30-Second Religion" by Russell Re Manning
     This quarter's book is not only enjoyable, but also very informative, educational and a great research book for ministers.
     The world's religions are broken down into various groupings:  Indigenous Traditions, Eastern Spiritualities, Abrahamic Traditions, European Christianities, World Christianities, Fusion Religions and New Religions.  Each religion is set out on one page.  These pages include a three second sermon, a 3 minute theology and about 30 lines (30 seconds) describing the religion in detail.  
     The Glossary is extremely informative and often educational as I realized I had been mis-using a few faith based descriptions!
     Some religions are so unique that I felt frustrated there wasn't more written about them, such as Animis (earth based) Ahmadiyya (Moslem off-shoot), Candomble (African), Cao Dai (Vietnamese) and Rastafarian Movement.
     I was disappointed that the Druid and Goddess religions weren't included; the Goddess is only mentioned briefly on the Neo-Paganism page talking about Wicca.
     As it says in the introduction "Religion has been a part of everyday life for many cultures since antiquity. From major religions to less widespread sects, this book explores the diversity and symbolism of the world's religions".Love and Light,
Happy Reading, if you have written or read an interesting metaphysical or spiritual book drop me a line and tell me about it, write me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What We Teach and Practice

The Universal Church of the Master does not have a traditional "statement of faith or creed" that members are required to adhere to. The reason is that UCM has a profound respect for the individualized nature of spiritual development within each human person. The Rev. Dr. Lavona Stillman, 7th president of UCM, was fond of saying: "UCM does not have TESTS of Faith, we have TESTIMONIES of Faith."

We also have SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES which serve as a touchstone that offers unity in an often confusing landscape of spiritual options. The wonderful thing about the SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES is how they developed. The Rev. Dr. Byron J. Fitzgerald, 2nd president of the Universal Church of the Master, after completing an exhaustive study of the world's religions, found that every life giving faith, when distilled down to their common elements, had these timeless SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES in common. He wrote about them in our denominational textbook, "A New Text of Spiritual Philosophy and Religion." These timeless SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES are written here in updated language. (The original text follows.)

Vision Statement

We encourage and promote each person's relationship with his/her "Master Within" by supporting the development of a Spiritual life, a ministry practice, nurturing friendships, and community life.
