For the place where I became Reverend Ronald F. Hoffman, try http://www.ordination.org. Multiple study programs are offered for the serious Christian.

After the experience of being born again, I started trying to do things that would influence those who have not had that electrifying experience. At first it was the BBS that ran back in the mountains of western North Carolina. Then, after moving back to southern California, it was the BBS here. When the BBS wave died out it took to the web site here. The traffic to this little site has been so slow that I felt more was demanded of me so I started the online (at first it was correspondence through the mail) studies to become an ordained minister. That was in 1998. After the illnesses of both Louise and me appeared stabilized, I continued the studies finally completing them on the 16th of June, 2010, when I was officially ordained as a minister.
