1. What is the least amount of education needed for a person to become a Baptist Minister? Would a Bachelor's degree be enough or would the person need to get a Master's?
2. If a Bachelor's degree is enough for a career in the ministry, would a Bachelor's in Religious Studies from a Liberal Arts college work, or would the person have to spend time in a Seminary?
I appreciate any help...Thanks.
Edit: Forgot to add that my character would have completed his education in the early 1980's and moved to Casper, Wyoming to begin his service.
Edit2: Thanks everyone. I think I have enough information to make to his education plausable. I appreciate it.
