Wedding Minister Ordination

PLEASE NOTE: Same-sex marriages are now legal in Washington State, and you are permitted to have a friend or family member serve as your Officiant or ceremonial minister if he or she is legally ordained. Ordination through First Nation Church is legal and valid in Washington.

Washington State Wedding Minister Ordination Credential Your complete First Nation Ministry credentials package for Washington State includes all of the documents you'll need to legally perform weddings, naming ceremonies, house blessings, re-commitments, funerals, handfasting and other rites and ceremonies in Washington State and other states in our Western Council. 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 Washington make it unnecessary for persons performing marriages to file credentials with the clerk of the court or with anyone else, but you must hold a current and valid minister's license to perform such rites. In Washington State, ordination or investment by the Church gives each clergy member the authority to perform the marriage rite. Washington State and local counties in the state are removed from any responsibility for verification of minister credentials. Washington State does not maintain a central registry of members of the clergy, and you are not required to undergo any formal training.

Not a resident of Washington? Your status as a non-resident ceremonial minister is acceptable in Washington. You may request ordination in your home state by clicking here and selecting the state you permanently reside in.

The current registration fee is $32 for ordination that is accepted in Washington State, 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.

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