Instantly become ordained like these ministers:

  • Ordained Minister Angela Welch

    My old church wasn't fulfilling me. I got ordained to kind of direct my own spiritual journey, the extra cash from officiating was a nice bonus!

    Angela Welch, Brookhaven, Georgia

    Ordained: 03/02/2012

  • Ordained Minister Sam Trujillo

    I got ordained online to start a ministry up here in Maine. $40 later, and my life was changed. I'd recommend to anyone feeling lost.

  • Ordained Minister Michael Pettibone

    I didn't take being a minister very seriously at first. Now, I'm so glad I joined. The ULC community has been a blessing in my life.

    Michael Pettibone, Lake Elmo, Minnesota

    Ordained: 02/13/2015

  • Ordained Minister Candace Meyers

    I was ordained by the ULC in 2014 to perform my sister's wedding. It was the best experience, and since then I've officiated dozens more!
