Get Ordained

Get Ordained

The Universal Life Church ordination is fast, free, and lasts a lifetime. It allows anyone over the age of 18 to perform legally-recognized wedding, baptismal, and burial ceremonies in most states and counties in the United States.

The online ordination process is exceedingly simple. You will be asked to provide the following information to become legally ordained online through the ULC:

  • Full legal name
  • Current home address
  • Preferred e-mail address

Online ordination is a serious matter. Only use factual information, capitalize when appropriate, and remember that your ordination will be entered into the ULC Monastery’s database exactly as it you enter it.

Begin Your Free Ordination

Upon completion of the online ordination process, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from the ULC Monastery that will also contain information about the resources we offer as well as what documentation you need to perform ministerial services.

Your privacy is carefully guarded. We maintain this information for our own use and legal records.
Within 24 hours of your submission you will receive an email confirming your ordination. Please read this email carefully; it contains important information and links.
(Due to volume, responses to email inquiries may take up to 72 hours.)
