How to Become a Bishop?

Answer

To become a bishop, one would need to be involved in the church. It is always a good idea to begin as a minister or a priest. One would have to work one's way up the ladder within the church until he reaches the position of the bishop. In most cases the people who become bishops have been involved in the church for at least twenty years. These people tend to be extremely active in the clergy and also often have an educational degree that includes theology.
