You can (or have a friend or family member) become legally ordained as a minister with the American Fellowship Church.
If you are concerned about the legality of performing a wedding (or having a friend or loved one perform/officiate your wedding ceremony) take a look at our helpful guide - Minister licensing laws. Once you are ordained and receive your Minister ID Card, you will have deeper access to the details of marriage laws simply by using your user name and password that you create when you checkout.
You don't need to worry about the validity of your marriage as long as you follow the rules of the law in the county and state in which you are going to be married or perform the wedding.
The American Fellowship Church has been around for quite a long time. We started out in 1975 and have since ordained thousands of people from all walks of life on almost every corner of the earth. Our ministers have become ordained for many different reasons.
Outside of our code of ethics, we will not ever ask you to change anything about who you are, or what you believe in order to become ordained with us.
We do however require (in order to become ordained you or the person whom you are requesting that we ordain) reads and agree to our code of ethics , other than this your time on this earth, life experience, and your desire to become ordained is qualification enough to have a title that you can turn into one of the most rewarding experiences that you have ever had. On the other hand...
If you are only interested in performing one wedding that is fine too. If this is the case; don't be surprised if you find that after you perform your first wedding, you get "the bug" and perform many more over the years.
Many of our ministers started out with the intention of a "one time" ceremony in some cases had become ordained online and had no intention of anything other than performing a single wedding for a friend, and they were so touched that they continued their ministry and have found it to be a truly rewarding experience.
We love to hear the stories and experiences of our ministers who have enjoyed online ordination with AFC when once they become ordained, how it has changed their lives and those around them. Please feel free to share your experience of online ordination with us if you feel so inclined.
