Have you served as a minister, pastor or member of a pastoral team for four or more years with any church or religious organization?
If so, you are eligible to be awarded a degree honoris causa from Laurel College as part of a program developed in cooperation with independent churches and faith-based organizations in the United States, Canada and Europe, and the American Council of Wedding Officiants.
This degree honors your professional experience and commitment to your craft as a church leader, minister, pastor, officiant and/or celebrant, and includes a separate honors certificate and letter of conferment.
ELIGIBILITY: Minimum four years of verifiable fulltime service as a minister, pastor, officiant and/or celebrant in any denomination. Available to honorees in all countries worldwide. Degree recipients may be nominated by their church, religious organization or themselves.
An honoree is only eligible for a degree level that has been attained or surpassed; for example, an honoree with five years of experience is eligible for a Bachelors degree (minimum four years experience). Upon attaining additional experience, previous honorees may advance to the next advanced level of degree honoris causa. Eligibility is subject to verification.
