Ordination Upgrade

Marriage Minister Credentials

Upgrade Your Marriage Officiant Credentials

PLEASE NOTE: This package is only available if you have received provisional or limited ordination ("basic ordination") which is currently in good standing through First Nation, St. Valentine Ministry, ULC or another major ordaining body and wish to upgrade to full (unlimited) status.

If you do not currently hold basic-level ordination or are not currently ordained, you may request ordination by clicking here.

The current fee is $15.95 and includes full documentation (including personalized ordination certificate, letter of good standing and minister credential card) as well as complimentary membership in the American Council of Wedding Officiants.*

* — If your ordination is currently in effect, your term will be extended by four years; i.e., four years will be added to the current expiration date on your term. Local authorities in some areas (including New York City, Hawaii, Ohio and Nevada) require that you register and pay an additional fee in order to perform weddings in their jurisdictions. These fees are not collected by us, and must be paid directly to the local licensing authority after you have received your credentials from us.
