What is a good school where one can study to become a Pastor? I am planning on becoming a Pastor and maybe going into Missions to teach God's word to people around the world.
I am Presbyterian

Lincoln Christian College in Illinois is a good place. They are very balanced and teach the Word there. They do not have liberal professors who question the validity of the Bible. Be careful- not all seminaries are alike. Be sure you ask them their core beliefs about what they truly believe. Do they believe Jesus is the only way of salvation? Do they believe in the resurrection, the virgin birth, the miracles of the Bible? There are a lot of liberal theological seminaries out there that are teaching incorrect doctrine.
Some others that are good:
Dallas Theological Seminary is another good one. Also Southwest Baptist (Texas)
Westminster Seminary in California
Fuller in southern CA
Most of the Lutheran from the Missouri SynodSource(s): Our pastor just recommended these to me.

There is no school better than the school of hard knocks.
Are you in a church now? What are you doing there?
Evangelizing, discipling and starting home groups are the training you need to do missions. There is a great organization called Youth With a Mission (I think it is www.YWAM.org) that does missions training.
I am a missionary, if you want more info, feel free to drop me an e-mail. Lord bless.

no rely if that's for a college club or an extracurricular type interest the place noone is compelled and the preacher grow to be invited via a pupil team then there's no reason they shouldnt be allowed. they should not be allowed to circulate from pupil to pupil, yet there's no reason they cant use a college room to hold a spiritual type lesson in the event that they want. churches use colleges continuously on sundays. Tax funds is getting used for those homes and if a woman scout troop can use the homes that have no longer something to do with college then why cant a prayer team? Noones rights are being violated in the event that they arent compelled to take section or being compelled throughout college. Seperation of church and state doesnt advise that something that has to do with faith cant step foot onto public assets. It basically potential that a individual cant be compelled to take section in a spiritual interest via the gvt. If noone is being compelled and its component of a few church club on campus in a room the place basically people who want to take section are being afflicted, then who cares? religious human beings are component of the community, too. If one community team is permitted to apply the homes for motives different than college, then religious communities might desire to be allowed to boot.
