Pastors in the Church 

Pastors should be men of good repute. Some of the responsibilities they must faithfully carry out include teaching, disciplining, the ban, leading in prayer, and the sacraments. They are to be supported by the church, but must be disciplined if they sin.


This article deals with the qualifications and duties of pastors. There's no mention of seminary, Bible college, or any education at all. While a pastor is entitled to be supported by the church, he's not entitled to get rich off them or act with impunity. He needs discipline like everyone else.
