Your Minister License ID Card
You can become ordained online today, when you order your minister license and ID card.
Your minister identification card certifies that you are a legally ordained and currently licensed minister.
You may use the titles Pastor, Bishop, Deacon, Minister, Preacher, Priest, Priestess, Chaplain, Rabbi or any other title that you wish, except Doctor titles.
- Your ID card is your Minister License, your ID as a Minister, and your small Certificate of Ordination all in one.
- Your minister ID card will show that you are licensed to perform wedding ceremonies, baptisms and funerals.
- Having minister credentials will allow you to perform the wedding ceremony of a friend or relative*. (See note below re Canada)
In addition, If your ministry takes you to hospitals or prisons, you may use the ID card to help you gain admittance to those institutions. You may also use the card to help obtain special parking privileges when they are available to ordained and licensed ministers.
Performing Weddings and Marriage Ceremonies
If you plan to perform marriages for friends or others, we urge you to order our publication "Details of Marriage Laws." This publication contains important information you need before you perform marriages in the United States.
Some states have special requirements and in a very few areas, (such as Nevada) our ministers cannot perform marriages unless they have an actual congregation or perhaps can't perform marriages at all. We suggest you order our publication "Details of Marriage Laws" to be well informed.
Additionally you may or may not be able to perform marriages in other countries.
* For example, our ministers may not perform marriages in Canada where very few churches are allowed to do that.
(To order "Details of Marriage Laws" in USA see Church Documents )
Testimonial from one of our ministers...
Since my becoming a minister of the American Fellowship Church, my life has been spiritually, mentally, and physically changed to a degree whereas I know that there is only one way to go, and that is with God.
Rev. H. W., Virginia
What's on your Minister ID Card....
You may become legally ordained right now by ordering an Ordination ID Card which is also your Minister License.
The ID card serves as your proof of ordination as well as your minister's license.
If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with any of the materials you order from us, you may return them (in original condition) , for a full refund less the $3 shipping and handling fee.
Since all ordinations take place on Sundays, your ID card along with any other materials you order will be mailed to you via the US Postal Service not later than the Monday following receipt. However, we try, but don't promise to have your order in the mail by the day after we receive it.
All orders are processed via secure payment system.
Rev. T. H. Swenson

From my initial contact, to the completion of my order, AMF provided the service as described on their website, in the time they said they would deliver their product. Could not be more satisfied.

Had a mailing delay which ended up being a postal service issue. Amfellow.org respond immediately and provided a resolution. A great reflection of this organization.

I feel confident in showing my id as licensed ordained minister. It looks professional and I carry it with me at all time should I need to show it. I perform many prison weddings and they are always requesting a copy of my credentials and I am happy to do so.

The process was very simple and very informative info is available on the site.

The license was received in a timely manner. I am looking forward to officiating at my son's wedding.

I was impressed at first on how the church responded with my request to bo ordained. But when I never received the card and requested to have them resend the card, all I heard was crickets. They have not emailed me back for over a week. Looks like I will have to order a replacement card at a cost of $13.00 for a card that was never sent\received.

A lovely ID to show my new title with endorsement on back. It arrived in less than a week and I can't wait to officiate my first ceremony.

My American Fellowship Church membership card arrived in a timely manner. I am excited to be a minister as it is in line with my health coaching practice as a healer. The card is perfect for my image of finding balance and spirituality in one's life
Posted by NA on 11th May 2015
Very easy process to become an ordained minister for doing my brother's wedding ceremony. I have friends who worked much harder in three years of seminary for theirs. Now I'm wondering what else I can do for the rest of the year as an ordained minister...lol.

We are very happy that we could facilitate this for you and your loved ones. If you are wondering what you can do for the rest of the year, or the rest of your life as it pertains to your role as a minister:
Offer help when it is asked of you (if you are able).
Follow the Golden Rule.
Posted by NA on 27th Apr 2015
The card is well done, has the pertinent information, and is conveniently sized.
Posted by D. D'Onofrio on 21st Apr 2015
This card is great only you should have a way to download a image of the person to go on the card,
still the card is very nice with perfect detailed information on it, God continue to bless you. You made this experience very easy and pleasant.

I did my research and chose American Fellowship Church to begin my ministerial career. Their code of ethics and direction are one of the best I could find. I look forward to a long and rewarding association in which I can help others develop their spirituality and well being in a positive way.
