How to Become an Ordained Minister

Looking to get ordained? The Universal Life Church Ministries is a non-denominational spiritual organization that accepts anyone who feels called to ministry. We provide all our called members with free ordainment: empowering them to speak truth to power, encouraging them to pursue answers to the "big questions" in life, and giving them legal authority to perform weddings, funerals, and many other types of spiritual ceremonies. Applying for online ordination is quick and can be done right here on our website!

Ordination Form

Steps to Legal Ordainment

Becoming an ordained minister of our online church is simple. Just fill out the ordination form above, press submit, and keep an eye out for your confirmation email. Here are a few things to keep in mind when completing the form:

  • Use your full legal name. Any use of nicknames may invalidate your ordination.
  • Stick with the facts. Any use of false information, including incorrect addresses or fake names, will invalidate your ordination.
  • Write your name with the correct punctuation, for it will be listed in our records exactly as you write it.
  • Make sure you use your current email address so we can pass along important information about your ordination.
  • Applications using another person's name, an animal's name, or similar fictitious accounts will not be recognized. Any such use of fraudulent information will result in a revoked/unrecognized ordination.
  • Before submitting this form, take the time to ensure that everything on it is accurate. Using incorrect information – even if it's accidental – can cause your ordainment to be invalid. This would be a major headache, so double check each line.
