Ordination is the Key
to beginning your own ministry or church. Becoming an Ordained Licensed
Minister opens the door to many opportunities for all sincere
Christians. We make ordination simple because there are so many
people like yourself that know seminary is too denominational,
generally very expensive and can take years to finish. Also, many, many
senior citizens, retired people, veterans and other sincere Christians
turn to us because they know our ordination is Christian only, and we
are sincere in our work. You can be ordained as soon as today, it is
not expensive and we are always here to answer question as time goes by.
Over the Years
we have ordained all types of people. We have provided ordination for
people from all walks of life, blue collar and white collar. We have
ordained everyday people like most of us, all the way to doctors,
lawyers, judges, police, retired seniors, veterans, and more. Like you, all the
people we ordain, no matter what their walk in life, have one thing in
common, the desire to do their part in spreading and serving the
Christian Faith by preaching, or doing weddings, or whatever their ability is.
One thing to Remember
is that we and you serve the Christian faith according to our ability.
God might lead you to open a church, just minister "one on one"
to people, or just do marriages. It's not how big your new ministry is, it's how sincere you
are in your efforts. That is what is Important.
After Being Ordained by World Christianship Ministries

the manner that you feel God is directing you. You are authorized by
The WCM to conduct or perform all standard Christian religious
ceremonies and services. These services would include the rites
of marriage, baptism, funeral services, and many more services.

As you read through the information on this website,
you will notice that we have provided you with details on a large
variety of Certificates, Handbooks, Bible Study courses, materials and
more. These things have been carefully put together over the last 36+
years in order to help you start your independent ministry or church as
smoothly as possible. We sincerely believe that these things will
give you valuable help and guidance as you begin this new part of your
Christian life. In particular we have special items we call Clergy or Minister Ordination Packages that give you a maximum amount of items and information at a minimum offering.
You will be able to perform Legal Marriage Ceremonies
As ordained Clergy you should find that many new opportunities are open
to you. In the USA and in many foreign countries that have
religious freedom, you will have the opportunity to perform Legal
Wedding Ceremonies if you wish to do so. Aside from being
an enjoyable thing to do, doing wedding ceremonies is an excellent way
to earn money for support of yourself, your family and your ministry.
Ceremonies can be very simple. Many couples basically just want to be
pronounce as Husband and Wife. Other couples just wish a short ceremony
at a home, in their garden or other simple location You can work
part time or full time. Many people that we ordain specialize in doing
weddings and are generally known as a "Marriage or Wedding Minister or
Officiant." Since you do weddings in peoples homes, parks and
other places, you can do this type of work from your home. Many people
ordained by World Christianship move on to open a small wedding chapel,
but starting from your home is the easiest way at first. For more
information on doing weddings visit our Weddings Page. For an excellent reference on how to do weddings in homes, parks, and other places have a look at our Marriage Minister's Handbook.
This handbook is based on over 2,500 weddings performed in all kinds of
locations by the founder and administrator of World Christianship
Ministries. The Handbook is straight to the point and is an excellent
reference on all aspects of doing a wedding ceremony.
About World Christianship Ministries
The WCM is a Christian nondenominational ministry that has been in
existence for over 36+ years. We have ordained anywhere from
2,000 to 15,000 people in each state of the USA and have ordained other
individuals in over 85+ foreign countries. We extend the
opportunity to you to be ordained as long as you are of legal age in
your state. When you request ordination we believe you are
sincere and that God has spoken to your heart in a most personal way.
You can become an ordained minister almost immediately, and in fact we
have same day ordination in cases where you have something urgent
coming up like a wedding the next day.
Ordination will be for Life.
Your ordination will be for life. We DO NOT ask for dues or renewal
fees each year in order to maintain your ordination. Credentials remain
valid as long as your work is Christian only, and nothing illegal is
done with the credentials.
This Ministry is Able
to offer these opportunities because of the kindness and generosity of
people like you. We do request offering for the various certificates
and services that we provide. Without your kind support we would not be
able to continue the ministry as we have over the past 36+ years. If
you are truly unable to send an offering, we will understand and send
you a small card confirming ordination upon approval.
