AMM to Provide In-Person Ordination in Tennessee for All Ministers affected by New Marriage Law

Published Tuesday, Jun. 11th, 2019

Attention Ministers, Friends, and Family:


American Marriage Ministries is coming to Tennessee to ordain you in person so that you can perform weddings in compliance with the new marriage law that was passed last month! With thousands of ministers stranded by the discriminatory Public Chapter No. 415, we are rising to the challenge because our ministers and the communities they serve are entitled to wedding ceremonies that reflect their values and beliefs, despite what the Tennessee legislature says!


Ministers from our Seattle headquarters will be providing FREE on-site minister ordination throughout the state, where we will answer ALL of your ordination and officiant questions, and offer FREE training materials (while supplies last)!


If you got ordained online, no matter what website you used, and plan on officiating a wedding in Tennessee, this event is for you! 


Stop by to Update Your Current Ordination (or Get Ordained) on-site and in person with American Marriage Ministries - for FREE!


Below are the dates and locations. The links will take you to Facebook events with more details, such as address and time. Please be sure to RSVP for the event on Facebook if you use it so that we can plan for the appropriate number of attendees (and materials!).

  1. Clarksville, Tennessee June 21
  2. Jackson, Tennessee June 22 
  3. Memphis, Tennessee June 24
  4. Chattanooga, Tennessee June 25
  5. Knoxville, Tennessee June 26
  6. Nashville, Tennessee June 27 & 28

Come out and enjoy a complimentary refreshing beverage, grab some free AMM swag, and meet others within this wonderful community.


We look forward to connecting with you and standing strong together in Tennessee.
