America's #1 Christian Simple Fast Ordination Ministry
36+ years of Christian Ordination Experience
Become an Ordained Licensed Minister as soon as today
Valid and legal throughout the U.S.A.

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  you will have the opportunity to conduct your new Christian Ministry in 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.  You have authority from The WCM to use a Christian title in front of your name if you wish. Such titles would include, but are not limited to, Minister, Reverend, Evangelist, Pastor, Chaplain, Bishop, (Christian) Officiant, Apostle and more.  You are entitled to the respect and consideration that is customarily given to ministers of religious organizations.

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.
