Become a Legally Ordained Minister - Get Ordained for Free - Join the ULC Community
The Universal Life Church offers legal ordinations to become a minister, free of charge. As an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church, you can officiate weddings, funerals, baptisms and perform other functions of the clergy.
Since 1959, the official Universal Life Church Headquarters has been based in Modesto, California, with congregations around the world. Our common thread is our adherence to the universal doctrine of religious freedom: “Do only that which is right.”
We are a church for anyone. ULC ministers come from all walks of life and spiritual traditions. It doesn’t matter where you are from or where you have been – there is something for everyone at ULC. We invite you to become an ordained minister of our church, and to join our online communities.
Celebrate truth, wisdom and religious liberty with us as part of the original and genuine Universal Life Church family.
