I know you can go online to a place like the universal life church, but everone knows it's a kind of loophole on paper. I'm talking legitimate credentials that actually might mean something to somebody.

Thanks.

I knew someone who went through the Universal life church, but afterwards she had to register with the state she lived in. I think was all she needed to do.

Re: What's the fastest way to get "legitimate" ministerial credentials?
Depends on where you live.

For 'high end' people of the cloth it requires going to seminary and getting a degree in religious studies.

It also depends on the brand of faith one is following.

If you are interested in one denomination or one particular religion, I strongly suggest you contact the 'head' office of that organization.

This doesn't mean you need to contact the Papal office in Rome if you are catholic, it means contacting the bishop's office of your area. It doesn't mean you need to go to Utah if you are Mormon, it means contacting the local Stake.

Seminary can be 2, 4 and 6-8 years in length depending on how 'well rounded' in religious studies you wish to become and what kind of degree you want. A Phd will earn you the title 'Doctor'.

Unfortunately the 'rules' for ministry are pretty lax, one can become a minister in 5 minutes on some sites.

Again, it boils down to where you want to go.

Some organizations like Friaries require that you have another degree in another field of study (other than religion). To be a brother of a friary is not 'easy' to do and there are tests and other obligations that one must perform and be willing to perform.

Priesthood requires attendance to priest school, and full filling obligations and 'climbing' the ladder within the church the 'rules' are defined by the Catholic Church.

Thanks for the replies!

Fuck it, maybe I'll just take it to the streets with a Bible and let the Spirit do the talking. Who needs credentials?
