I have a great desire to study the bible so that I can be prepared if God calls me to some sort of formal ministry. I have been looking for a program for some time. I was recently asked if I would consider serving as a deacon of my church. I don't currently feel that I am ready for that yet, but thought it was ironic that this was brought up after months of feeling led to further my education with some sort of Bible study. I have been looking at Liberty Home Bible Institute for a while now and have recently discovered the Legonair Academy of RC Sproul. Any advice on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
