We encourage anyone over the age of 18 who finds the

congregation of their own, to pursue the somewhat arduous path to become an
Unlike many organizations on the web, we do not give out
Ministerial Certificates to raise money and appease a sense of ego with no
merit. We take ordination of ministers
seriously and require an extensive understanding of the basic principles of
Barbequia as well as the ability to implement them in a practical way.
Once the requirements have been met and a person is approved
by the Council of Ministers, they may enter into a ministerial agreement with
the IFC and become an ordained minister.
It does require a fair amount of study, understanding and
ability to share appropriately which are all important in reflecting the correct
image of the IFC through its ministers.
If you are interested in becoming a Minister, please contact the Presiding Minister and we will gladly review the requirements and work with
you to help prepare you for this important undertaking. All potential ministers
are guided in their training on a personal basis.
Once you are officially ordained a Minister of The
Independent Faith Church you can be assured that you will have the knowledge
and the tools you need to start a successful congregation and spread the
Barbequian spiritual and life philosophy in your own unique way.
