I came across a minister who has excellent credentials as far as schools from Associates to Masters degrees all from regionally accredited or nationally accredited schools but one of their Bachelor's degrees is from a non-accredited school by Louisiana Baptist University. I have heard mixed reviews about the school. However, they have a Doctor of Ministry degree from an unaccredited school. I asked them why they didn't get an accredited degree and they stated that it as due to cost and that they felt that they had received a good education and had to do much work for it. The school that they graduated from is Trinity College of the Bible. The minister uses the D.Min after his name and also is called "Doctor." I don't know anything about this school but reading from Wikipedia it looks as though they tried accreditation but failed and then tried to have some connections with schools in the UK and that was stopped. Is it legal for ministers to use the title of "Doctor" from an unaccredited school and it seems like there is much debate about the role of separation of church and state and religious entities.
