NOW VALID FOR ALL CALIFORNIA MARRIAGE CEREMONIES!

California Wedding Minister Ordination - Become an ordained minister for California marriage ceremonies Your complete First Nation Ministry credentials package for California includes all of the documents you'll need to legally perform all rites, including weddings, naming ceremonies, house blessings, re-commitments, funerals, handfasting and other ceremonies. Ordination through First Nation Church as a ceremonial minister is valid and accepted anywhere in the world! To view sample documents, please click here.

The laws of the State of California make it unnecessary for persons performing marriages to file credentials with the County Clerk or any state or local agency, but you must hold a current and valid minister's license to perform such rites. In California, ordination or investment by the Church gives each clergy member the authority to perform the marriage rite. California and local counties in the state are removed from any responsibility for verification of minister credentials. California does not maintain a central registry of members of the clergy, and you are not required to undergo any formal training; however, you must present your credentials to any state or local authority and/or the bridal couple upon their request.

Not a resident of California? California does not restrict legally ordained non-resident ministers from serving in the state.

The current registration fee is $32 for ordination that is accepted in California, as well as most states and local jurisdictions (two-year licensing term). Please contact the county clerk in your area for information on local regulations. Standard First Class shipping of your documents packet is free!*

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

Don't require complete California State minister ordination? Our basic-level ordination package begins at only $10.95 and is accepted in California and nearly every jurisdiction across the United States. Please click here for details.
