As of last week, I was formally accepted into Liberty university in the study for an Associate of Arts in Religion.

 

basically studying theology and when my AA is complete, to be a church minister or counselor. Sorry if so small but here's is an unofficial listing of my courses required

Interesting on becoming a church minister. Once you complete your studys do you go to another school to become a minister or do you get a sort of intership at a church. GL with your studys and all the best.

But you gotta admit, walking around with a pope hat would be pretty sick.  Either way, congrats on getting where you wanted to go.

Mom is finishing her Bachelors in Theology and going for her Masters next at the same school

Some classes are going to be very hard depending on instructor, some will not really make sense as to why you are taking it

 

Mom is already a Minister and wants to be a counselor, think she's stopping at her Masters, at least for now
