American Marriage Ministries is Still Open during the COVID-19 Shutdown. You can still get ordained and get your documents -- we're just working from home!


More than ten years ago, American Marriage Ministries started out in our founder Glen Yoshioka’s apartment, and a decade later, we’ve moved back in with Mom and Dad! Well, sort of…


Put another way, we're taking advantage of the latest remote working technology to ensure that we can still offer the services and products that our ministers need to create memorable wedding ceremonies -- even if they are postponed for a few weeks/months.


That's because we’re small enough to relocate our operations into the homes and garages of our employees, which means we can still get you the documents and resources that you need to plan wedding ceremonies (which are happening, sooner or later).

We are committed to doing our part to fight the COVID-19 outbreak, and ensure compliance with Washington State’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Order. This means that we are all working remotely - including our shipping and fulfillment department. 


Our fulfillment and shipping operations are sterilized twice a day, and with the office and shipping facilities shut down, we’ve eliminated the possibility of workplace related transmission. We have reorganized our entire process to be fully compliant and safe, and we’re grateful to be able to continue to serve our network of ministers and couples.

We are 100% committed to delivering the same high quality of service, but since we are unable to use our church facilities at present, shipments may take a day or two more to get to you. But don’t worry - they will be on their way soon! Once your orders are fulfilled, they are picked up by the US Postal Service, and delivered to your doorstep.


Again, our fulfillment process is in full compliance with CDC and Washington State safety and sanitation regulations, and the health of our community is of utmost priority to us in these uncertain times. 


We appreciate the sacrifices that thousands of AMM ministers and couples are making by postponing ceremonies, and we are here for you. That said, these weeks of isolation are an opportunity to work on ceremony scripts, and meet with couples in a virtual capacity.


We wish you all good health.
