Become a Minister
The Universal Life Church Monastery, also known as the "ULC", has been serving our online church community for nearly 40 years.
Our fundamental tasks are to promote freedom of religion and to "do that which is right" - core tenets that underscore everything we do. The ULC appeals to a worldwide audience through our online church services and our overarching belief that "we are all children of the same universe."
Over 20 million ministers worldwide have become ordained with the Universal Life Church. The ULC is a non-denominational organization open to people of all faiths, offering everyone the religious freedom to become an ordained minister and practice their beliefs.
