This Ordination Credential is the official minister license certificate of the Universal Life Church. It is a legal ordination certificate verifying your status as a licensed minister of the ULC.
There are several benefits to having a certified copy of your ministerial credentials. For one, marriage officials often ask to see documents confirming your position as a licensed member of the clergy. Having a physical copy of your ordination certificate on-hand makes it easy to prove that you are indeed an ordained minister. Secondly, many couples like to see official credentials from their minister prior to the ceremony.
