Once a student realizes that they truly are going to become a legal, licensed Interfaith Minister, they often ask, “What Can I Do with My Interfaith Minister License?” Well, for one thing, you have to be “Ready to Serve” your community. Once Interfaith becomes a part of who you are, you will understand that there are many paths to God and you will share that knowledge with everyone you meet.
An Interfaith Minister has the advantage of flexibility with their ministerial degree. They are qualified to serve a larger community of varying faiths. Rabbi Joseph Gelberman taught Interfaith Ministers to go deeper into the faith of their choice or faiths they are drawn to, so that they can continue to study, serve and teach these areas of interest in their community.
As a recognized “Spiritual Leader,” you will live and grow creating “Oneness,” all the while bringing spiritual service to our divisive world. This can be done by serving others in informal encounters, as well as in formal ways, such as” life-cycle celebrations performing: private weddings, commitment ceremonies, funerals, baby namings/welcomings, memorial services, vow renewals, handfastings, adoption ceremonies, family unions, ship christenings, and home blessings, just to name a few.
You may also participate in local, state, national, and international Interfaith associations, religious conferences, the World Parliament of Religions, Interfaith Seminaries, Ashrams, Retreat houses, Holistic Institutes, and the United Nations. You can work in hospitals as a Spiritual Care Coordinator or assist other pastors/ministers in their churches/temples and maybe even start your own church!
You can also join or create an Interfaith Association in your community and participate in community events in your own town. Let people get to know you and your talents by creating podcasts or webinars on current interfaith topics or write articles, books, and blogs on various Interspiritual and Interfaith topics.
The list goes on, but one thing is for sure, becoming a licensed Interfaith Minister assures that you will be part of changing the world for good, one person at a time!
But the question is:
Are You Ready?
