    We agree to disagree. My intent is not to come across as smug or elitist, and it certainly isn't an issue of being insecure in myself, it has more to do--at least for me--with integrity, honesty and ethics.

    Well... yes and no. I'm all for accreditation. But making the clear cut distinction would imply, to the general public, that the minister in a smaller jurisdiction is less educated that one in larger. I would argue bitterly with the notion that smug graduates of Holy Trinity Theological Seminary (Greek Archdiocese, RA/ATS) are entitled to "Master's" degree and St. Sophia's are not, when the real difference between our sister Churches (both under the same Patriarch) is simply size. That, and the Greek school is way more expensive. I suspect that's why South Bound Brook moved the seminary from LTh to MDiv in the first place.
