I know there have been threads on this before but the material is somewhat old. When looking at religious degrees, how much does accreditation matter if your goal is not to teach? If the goal is to perform duties at a church and you have a secular degree, does an accredited religious degree matter very much? This online MDiv is something like $30K and it is not accredited - Unity Institute I have seen this one for $900 - Graduate | Andersonville Theological Seminary I have seen others that fall in the middle. Of course, NationsU is $100 a year. I am sure there are other like Louisiana Bapist (or something like that) In the end, does it matter much?
