Ordained Minister

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Can anyone help me become an ordained minister? I found a website that has me type my info in and then "ordains" me but it seems a little too easy. Is it really that simple? Are there classes I should find? What's a reputable website to go through? TIA for any help or direction you can provide. :)

It depends on what you mean by an "ordained minister."  Yes, you can find a website and with a couple of clicks print out a certificate that says you are ordained.  Many people do this in order to perform marriages for friends.  The problem with that is that such a marriage may not hold up to a legal challenge depending on where you are married.

 

For most religious denominations, ordination happens after a lengthy period studying in seminary, often many years, and completing additional requirements.
