I've never done it myself but was really into the actual mission(aviation speaking) so I did a ton of research, looking for a way around the whole religion part of it. There is none, and it's not really a time building job. You need a church sponsor, and have to meet certain religion requirements to insure you spread the word to those who "need it". I'm and A&P and meet all the hours but it doesn't matter, no way around the church stuff.

If the church aspect of it is not a problem for you and you can self fund/get funding, then go for it. The experience seems unbelievable. I followed this guy for a while but he's gone dark. Not sure if he's still flying-
