Get Legally Ordained to Perform Weddings

One of the ULC's fundamental beliefs is that everyone should be afforded equal freedom to exercise their religious beliefs – whatever those beliefs may be. This first amendment right, granted by the U.S. Constitution, includes the freedom to become ordained as a minister without jumping through numerous hoops and taking expensive courses.

The ULC provides ordinations entirely free of charge to anyone that seeks to join. Once ordained, you have the right to perform weddings, baptisms, and other ceremonies. Officiating a ceremony is a tremendous honor, and great responsibility. To assist you, we offer an array of tips, tools, and materials, including a more detailed guide on becoming ordained within your area.

By becoming a ULC minister, you'll also be joining a vast and spiritually-diverse community of people. Whether you're still defining your religious philosophy, or have a highly-developed understanding of your spirituality – the ULC community is an inclusive place which encourages the expression of beliefs and the sharing of ideas.
