    I have spent about 20 hours scouring the net for information.

    I do not have any money to pay, but I want a Masters degree, or doctorate though I am not sure that is possible without a masters...in Christian studies-Ministry/Pastoral/Divinity/Counseling/Leadership/Bible study/something (that when I look at the syllabus I get excited) from a reputable school that will be recognized. If possible, I would love to get something having to do with writing or journalism. I prefer something that caters more to the people and building a ministry, but with solid biblical courses.

    If possible, I would like to complete it very quickly.

    Does not have to be accredited, but I would like for it to be recognized as reputable. I do not live in the US, but would like it to be recognized there.

    I have already looked at Nations University and it does not fill me with great excitement.

    I am an aspiring author and would like to have a background that will fill me with knowledge to write to the people for evangelizing, not necessarily for academic purposes.

    I have investigated Galios and would like to know what people think of this one?

    Again, I cannot put any money into the education.

    If you could please help me, I would appreciate it.

    I don't believe that what you're looking for actually exists in the DL world. There are situations at regular B&M universities where a doctoral student might be given a stipend for being a teaching assistant but I think that's as good as it gets. It shouldn't be too surprising though. It would be a little like going to a good restaurant and expecting free food.

    What about Ames Christian College, theres a few threads about it. It's not free nor accredited but its an option to look at. I believe its 100% online but dont quote me.

    How can you actually say so? There seem to be many online schools that are tuition free.

    Oh yes, I found this. Thank you. I think I may sign up for this because I like the syllabus, but it does not offer any degree. Only a certificate.

    P.S., if it is not a fast program, that is ok too. It does not have to meet all of my specfications.

    I am not interested in taking one course and getting a doctorate degree... as the person above had spoke about. That would qualify the Universal life church then as a diploma mill I guess. I know I did say I want it FAST, but I just meant that I want the studies to be accelerated..not to take 3 or 4 full years.

    You are very welcome! Yea, you don't have to retype, you just have to wait. If none of us are online, you may have to wait a few hours. If some of us are online you should only wait a few minutes. We try our best to get it going quickly. You are obviously not a spammer and the servers will automatically let you post directly to the board very soon.

    Has anyone suggested Nations U yet? That might be a good choice. I'm thinking about going for something there after I finish my doctorate at Liberty.

    Your expectations and requests are unusual, unreasonable and unrealistic.

    You say you are not interested in a diploma mill but do not want to spend 3-4 years getting a "Masters degree, or doctorate". How much time do you want to spend? Also, I looked at the website for northwesternseminary and they offer "The NTS-AADP accelerated graduate degree program allows students to earn Masters and Doctorate degrees in as little as just 12-WEEKS, by writing a Thesis or Dissertation only..." Would this meet your needs?

    What is wrong with the schools you listed as free or close to free?

    I think it is really hilarious that people are so quick to say what I am asking for is not possible, yet it is VERY possible.
