Note: Please do not confuse us with other entities with a similar name or online ordination services. We are the ONLY Legal Faith Based Universal Life Church with ordinations that are valid throughout the USA, Canada and most of the world. We DO NOT Ordain Ministers to do nothing! Our Ministers are very real, ordained within a traditional doctrine of faith, with lineage and succession to Jesus Christ and fully accepted as ministers within the Christian Community. Discriminatory Free Without Reservation We Ordain BOTH Men and Women.
Ordination like Marriage is a Sacrament, it is an Oath and Vow we make with and before the Lord. However, there are other online ordination services who do not share the solemnity we have for this blessed event. Since these others do not ordain within any faith, they will ordain anybody or anything, as there primary objective is to make money. Yes there are others out there who will resort to bragging about millions ordained, just like a famous hamburger chain once bragged about millions served. I do not believe the Good Lord or anyone else looks at these ordinations with any type of validity whatsoever.
Because of this disgrace, we end up dealing with many unhappy campers. We will not ordain anyone without good reason. It is amazing how many people seek to get ordained and when asked why? They offer reasons such as:
1.) They say I don't know
2.) They say I just want to for no reason
3.) They say because it will bring me closer to God
4.) They say because my father was a pastor
*5.) Because I want to teach or preach the Good News
*6.) Because I want to help others
**7.) Because I want to counsel others
* To get ordained to teach, preach and to help others BY ITSELF are not sufficient reasons to get ordained. We are baptized, not ordained to Teach, Preach and Help. WE WILL NOT ORDAIN those looking to just Teach, Preach or Help and who have no desire to HOLD SERVICES and/or ADMINISTER SACRAMENTS.
** Ordained Ministers are not counselors, nor are they permitted by law to offer counseling services of any kind. Being a Minister or Counselor are two totally different fields. Ministers can offer spiritual direction in accord with the teachings of the Bible.
The two most important facets of being an ordained minister are to hold services (lead a congregation, to shepherd a flock) and to administer sacraments (marriage, baptism and etc.). In addition as is the case with any Christian, ministers teach and preach the Good News coupled with helping others.
I believe thousands of Muslims will turn to Jesus in the Middle East soon when they see their god does not answer prayer!

Two Milwaukee churches active in the food justice movement are ramping up their efforts to feed the hungry and create jobs for low-income workers this summer.
Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church on Sunday is christening its new rooftop agricultural garden, only the second of its kind in Milwaukee. And All Peoples Church has finished the first phase of a plan to transform five vacant lots in the Harambee neighborhood into an urban orchard.
"This is about creating a sustainable food source and giving people the dignity of work," said the Rev. Karen Hagen, pastor of Tippecanoe, better known as "Tippe" Church, at 125 Saveland Ave. near Bay View.
The church gardens, including the rooftop space, are tended by men and women who are or have been homeless and have come through Tippe's Divine Intervention cold-weather shelter. The shelter, a collaboration of 36 faith communities, welcomes homeless adults during the winter months, then stays connected the rest of the year through Friday night potluck dinners, a weekly delivery of bag meals to those sleeping outdoors, and work in the garden.
"The focus is on dignity, and developing job skills and references," Hagen said.
All Peoples plans to hire an orchard manager, whose duties will include supervising up to three employees who are transitioning from prison back into the community through the faith-based nonprofit Project Return. The seasonal work is a good fit for transitional employees, said All Peoples pastor, the Rev. Steve Jerbi.
"It provides a nice chunk of steady work for a short time. But the worker is not locked into that job while they look for other opportunities," he said. "We want to show that this can be a viable employment opportunity for people in the city. That you don't have to move out to a farm to make a living doing this."
Both projects were ambitious undertakings for small congregations of modest means, made possible in each case with a patchwork of grants. In addition to about $10,000 in MMSD funds, the orchard received more than $27,000 in grants from the Greater Milwaukee Synod, the nonprofit Victory Garden Initiative and the city's HOME GR/OWN and Strong Neighborhoods initiatives.
At Tippecanoe, members raised about $28,000 for the rooftop garden, which included contributions from MMSD, the Lake Michigan Foundation, the American Rivers Foundation and the Presbyterian Church USA. The plants were donated by Plant Land, a local nursery. And the church's members and homeless friends pitched in on the labor.
Hagen and gardener Nancy Hartmann recently checked the progress of the rooftop plants — fledgling rows of tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, cucumbers and more. In addition to supplying the church food pantries, Tippe is in talks with Braise and other restaurants about growing specialty produce for their menus.
"If we can grow purple carrots and sell that to Braise, then that helps fund our ministry," she said.
That, in turn, invests in people like Nancy and Larry Hartmann, her husband of one month.
Longtime friends, the two had come to Divine Intervention in the winter of 2011-'12 from a tent camp in the woods. Both were alcoholics, unable to hold jobs for any length of time, or cobble together the resources needed to find a place to live.
They are sober now. They've traded the tent camp for more comfortable, if modest, housing. And in June, they were married at Tippe, surrounded by church members, volunteers, Divine Intervention guests and others who have walked alongside them these last few years.
It is often solitary work, leaving her much time to think, as she makes her way between the boxes with the garden hose.
"I think about how much better I am now, I suppose," she said as she rested on a picnic bench in the shade behind the church. "I'm thankful there was a place like this."

"The Universal Life Church World Headquarters defends the unborn, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, educates the young, welcomes refugees, and cares for the sick, both at home and abroad. They believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God."
"A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life. No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people, in the experience of fraternal love. We are designed with a dreaming brain and a hopeful spirit; it is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication, and courageous action to bring that dream to life."
Do you wish to pursue a vocation in ministry - become a minister, get ordained or serve as a wedding officiant? We provide ordination to men and women enabling work in all facets of Christian Ministry with ministers in the USA, Canada, UK, Africa, South America, Germany, India, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, Australia, China, Mexico and many other countries throughout the world.
