Wedding Minister Credential Samples PLEASE NOTE: Some states and local jurisdictions require an additional endorsement from First Nation Church and Ministry in order for you to legally perform ceremonies in those locations. These special endorsements are available only to those already holding a current valid ordination license from our ministry. If you are not currently ordained through our ministry, you may do so by clicking here.

Not certain which documents you require? Please contact us for information on local regulations! Please click here to contact us for assistance.

All packages include our steadfast commitment to member service following your ordination, to assure that your wedding day experience is trouble-free.

Because state and local government offices require a live signature (most government offices do not accept PDF, photocopy or facsimile documents), these documents must be mailed to you. Electronic delivery as PDF files is not available.

Don't require complete ordination? Our basic-level ordination package begins at only $10.95 and is accepted in most jurisdictions across the United States. Please click here for details.
