Get involved with American Marriage Ministries

It's up to us to make the world a better place, but change requires action, and action requires goals. In the words of the great American revolutionary Thomas Paine, "We have it in our power to change the world." For us here at American Marriage Ministries, the goal is to build communities through the free practice of matrimony, for all Americans regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or economic class.



Unfortunately, some states want to arbitrate which religious institutions can and can't perform wedding ceremonies, even though that right is protected by the First Amendment.

To ensure that the freedom to marry on their own terms is accessible to all Americans, AMM advocates on behalf of its ministers in certain states where challenges still exist. We invite you to join our efforts, and this page tells you how you can do that.


Ministers ordained online routinely face difficulty and discrimination when attempting to comply with Virginia's registration requirements. We disagree with this practice wholeheartedly, and consider it a violation of Virginia's own laws, which grant these rights to all ministers, regardless of where they were ordained.

Help us end Virginia's arbitrary discrimination against online-ordained ministers by downloading this letter, signing it, and sending it to the Virginia Division of Human Rights of the office of the Attorney General.

Minister Rights Letter


The Tennessee Legislature recently passed an unconstitutional amendment that declares "online ordinations" as not valid across the State of Tennessee.

To protect the rights of our ministers in Tennessee, Officers of American Marriage Ministries toured Tennessee and provided in-person ordinations so that our ministers could continue to officiate weddings in Tennessee.

Following AMM's tour, a Tennessee Federal Judge put an injunction on the amendment, meaning that persons ordained online can continue to officiate weddings in Tennessee. However until this matter is settled in court, the future of online ordinations in Tennessee remains uncertain.

We encourage our ministers and the communities they represent to help us in striking down this unconstitutional law. Click on the button below for more information.

Beyond the scope of marriage, AMM is committed to leaving this planet a cleaner, safer place that we found it. That's why we have partnered with, and are certified as a carbon neutral organization.

That means that the carbon emissions of your online ordination, all our shipping operations, commuting, office supplies, and other activities are offset by forestry planting, energy efficiency, and investments in renewable energy. We encourage you to join us in supporting non-profits that are working to protect our climate, promote learning, and building a better world for our children.
