G said in a sermon that he has a "baccalaureate" degree from a school of ministry. If I recall it was from when he was about 20 years old.
Of course, the RSUM degree is also called a "baccalaureate", even though it is a 9-month program that has 1/4 of the credit hours of an actual 4-year baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university.
I’m sure that they are ordained and licensed somewhere, as it is very easy to obtain them from some sources, some can be done by mail.
So . . . is there ON ONE, out of 41 pages of posts, that KNOWS where the founding leadership of the ROC received their education/credentials and ordination from? Maybe they don't even have any of this. If you know either way, please post. If we don't ask this basic question from the outset, we (the public) must be the ones with problems. This sounds like the typical dysfunctional relationship . . . stop tolerating the dysfunction and the relationship either gets healthy or it dissolves. (usually easier said than done).
