The Bee Stings The Mindlessness of the ‘Celebrity Pastor’

Life Journey Bible College & Seminary, known for its readily attainable degrees in practical theology and missional outreach, announced its latest degree offering Friday morning: celebrity pastoring.

Seminarians wishing to attain a bachelor’s degree in being a wildly celebrated public figure within Christian culture will be asked to tackle a heavy course load packed with classes like “Shifting The Blame For Your Public Scandals To Others,” “Turning Your Forgettable Quotes Into Image Macros,” and “Finding The Right Ghostwriter.”

Those who pursue advanced level classes will find themselves training under the instruction of some of the most adored celebrity pastors today, with high-level courses like “Emanating An Aura Of Perfection,” “Ignoring Healthy Criticism,” “Advanced Elder Board Manipulation,” and “Count The Cost: Preparing For Your Eventual Fall From Grace.”

“We’re excited to offer this new, unique approach to training up-and-coming celebrity pastors,” school Dean Crane Harrington said in a YouTube video announcing the new set of classes. “For too long, Christian educators have ignored the massive opportunity we have to shape the next generation of famous, superstar pastors—but no longer.”
