Welcome to the online ordination page of the Universal Life Church Seminary. By filling out the Ordination Application (down below), you are taking the big step of becoming a legally ordained minister with the Universal Life Church. There are many opportunities available to you, being a minister, if you choose to exercise them. The most common one is to perform weddings for friends, loved ones, and people who have need for a wedding minister. To clarify the legal aspects of this in your state or province, view the FAQ page on the site.
People generally become ordained for three reasons:
To perform the legal function of officiating at someone's wedding,
To further their own spiritual or religious goals or,
They think it would be funny.
We hope that you will take your ordination seriously, as it is a serious rite. We believe strongly on doing what's right. Here is another website we value whose sole purpose is to Do No Harm.
There is much talk about the term 'Instant Online Ordination.' Technically, your ordination is not happening online. The internet is merely a conduit for your application for ordination through the Universal Life Church.When you complete this form, your request for ordination is sent to headquarters in Modesto, CA to be processed and recorded by hand. It is at this time that you will officially become a minister. Congratulations and welcome!
with your information, please make sure you have complied with the
• Please put your full legal name for the ordination so it can be filed correctly. No Nicknames. An obvious nickname will just be deleted, as will the names of any fictitious or public figures.
If your name or address is incomplete,
your ordination will be discarded.
• If you ordain someone else, get that person's
express permission first.
• Please check for correct spelling and capitalization
and that the email address is correct.
Upon becoming a new minister, you will begin to receive our free
monthly newsletter, containing useful ministerial information, monthly
specials, and a free ceremony samples. You will also be sent special
announcements, breaking news about the ULC and much more.
Within 5-10 minutes after your ordination, you will receive an
email message. It's usually immediate and it will be the same
message that pops up in the window. Please save this email, in the event that your request for ordination through the Universal Life Church is lost in cyberspace. If you order a credential immediately following your ordination, you may need that email to verify your ordination with headquarters. Since all of the ordinations are recorded by hand, this may take some time.
Your ordination is for life. You are still ordained whether you have moved, married or lost your credential. If any of these are the case, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to update your information and to find out how to get a new credential.
