Free Ministerial Ordination

Receive minister ordination ... fast and free!Q: I can obtain a ministerial credential elsewhere for free. Why should I pay for certification through First Nation Church?

A: To be blunt, you get what you pay for. While the basic Internet "minister credential" will be accepted in a few states, full ordination as a ceremonial minister through First Nation Ministry and certification by the American Council of Wedding Officiants credential, is valid and legal everywhere in the world, and is accepted in virtually every local jurisdiction across the United States.

Did you know that your "free minister ordination" obtained elsewhere can end up costing you much more than you bargained for?

Just about any free ceremonial ordination service will give you a piece of paper with your name on it. It looks official, but what happens when you take it down to the County Clerk's office? That's where your fun begins.

If your "credential" is accepted and it's a mighty big "if" you're good to go. If not, you'll be going back to the ordination service to see if they'll provide you with a "letter of good standing" from the church. Here's a quick lesson for you: it isn't free!

(Here's another lesson: the letter is included in our standard package, at no additional charge to you.)

Want a personalized certificate with your name on it from them? Get out your wallet. How about an identification card? They'll charge you for that, too. Oh, and you want it shipped to your home? There will be an additional fee for that as well.

Suddenly, your "free" ministerial credential elsewhere can end up costing you more than $150!

Our fee for complete ordination works out to less than $1.35 per month, includes full documentation, unlimited support and annual membership in ACWO, while our basic package includes EVERYTHING you'll need to be confident in the power that has been vested in you by First Nation Church!
