now to secure funding

so i think i know what i truly want to do -- i thought about it BEFORE college, after i graduated, and at other various points...it keeps coming back to me...

now i just need to get going on getting the funding and being accepted into the training program -- i want to be a "staff minister" with my synod -- not a pastor, not a teacher but a called worker who is synodically trained and working in conjunction with pastors and teachers...i think it would be fun! and a way to share my faith and work with a church, but have that be the way i make my living...

i suppose i could get student loans for the academic part (also could cover books, etc) and i suppose i could live on campus (again lol) but i would still have bills to pay (pay off my credit cards, car, gas, etc)...any ideas???

are scholarships an option? Could you work on campus...or at a Dairy Queen? (LOL)
Becky, if you can make it happen, follow your heart. Chances are it is God leading you in that direction.
