Any one can ordained online these days. In fact, I am ordained but I do not use it. I did it out of curiosity.
I think a church leader such as a Pastor should have some kind of education. Without the education in my opinion it would seem that alot of what that person said might be opinion based rather than factual based.
As for Elders, Deacons or Deaconess those are positions in my church that are chosen for memebers of the church that have shown a commitment to the church and for those that do their best to follow the word. Elders do have to take classes with our pastor.
