America Needs You to Get Ordained Online!

Published Sunday, Aug. 25th, 2019

You are the future of American Spirituality. It doesn’t matter if you’re an Atheist or a Zoroastrian, or anything and everything in between, this is your chance to transcend the failures of mainstream religion and practice faith on your terms. 


Welcome to American Marriage Ministries. 

Church attendance is dwindling and people are looking for something new. For generations, brick-and-mortar churches have failed to provide moral leadership or a vision for the future. 


That’s because inspiration comes from within, not the pulpit, and most certainly not from bureaucrats that want to tell you how and where to practice your religion. It’s inside you right now. We want to empower you to lead, to inspire, and to create community by helping people that love each other to celebrate that incredible emotion.


That’s why we’re fighting for you. 

For more than a decade, our ministers have lead communities across this country in an exploration shared values and spiritual growth, through the celebration of marriage. As millions of Americans abandon mainstream religion, life-altering events like weddings take on a new spiritual significance. We’re here to help you and the people in your life celebrate these moments on your own terms.


But we can’t do that without you…

That’s why we’ve spent the last few weeks crisscrossing the country, gathering our minister’s stories, and listening to their suggestions. As disparate as their backgrounds and faiths are, they all share one common theme: a desire to join people together in celebration of our shared desire for love and joy.


Together, we’re writing a new chapter, and we want to include you.

It’s time for you to take the next step in your journey. It’s time for you to become a force for good in your community. It’s time for you to get ordained, so that when a couple asks you to officiate their wedding, you can say yes!
