Ministry?
« on: Thu Jul 01, 2010 - 09:35:32 »
I was told of some seminaries that exist that have 4 year programs (like a bachelor's degree program)... If this is true, then where are they? I want to go to Seminary one of these days, but most, if not all (major) seminaries require a 4 year degree, and unfortunately due to many factors, I do not have the money nor can I get the money for a 4 year university/college...

Can you get a loan? My daughter has just got as degree here in the UK and she had to borrow a student loan. She now owes £20,000 (about $30,000) which she will have to start paying back when she earns over a certain amount.Is there something like this in the USA?

I can tell you that with a bachelor's degree you might get a job in a big church, but with a certificate from a sound Bible college you can find a place in small church groups;  and there are many of them, if you are willing to move and do service in a small town.

You might like to see some sound counsel on church truth and history at the web site:  www.biblecounsel.homestead.com ( which does not advocate the need of college to serve the Lord.).

The ministry Jesus has anointed us for is the ministry of reconcilliation to God. Not one of those Jesus sent into the world required to go to school. Acts 4:13 It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit not a piece of paper.

Actually, the way it works is that if you get student loans, after 6 months of graduating or dropping out of college you have to start paying back your student loans. at least that's the way it is with Stafford loans. I'm not sure what other loans do. As long as you're in some sort of schooling program, you don't have to pay back your student loans. If you come out of school, start paying back your loans and in two years go back and are still paying, you get a deferrment because you have gone back to school.
