Our ordinations do not expire. There are no annual renewals fees or tithes either. Getting prepared to officiate a wedding is already a lot of work and can often get stressful. We do not want to add to that stress. We want to make this process as simple and easy as possible.
We are not interested in requiring that you give us money at regular intervals to remain a minister in Good Standing with our Church. We believe that would be sleazy. That being said, we do fully appreciate your voluntary donations and purchases from our store. That is how AMM is supported after all.
As a non-profit charity we operate under perennial austerity measures and allocate our financial resources carefully. Our mission is to provide our services to as many people as possible. By not charging fees we are able to provide those services to more people, people many of who would otherwise not be able to afford it.
We believe all people have the right to perform marriage. This includes people of all socio-economic classes, not just those who have money.
Once you get ordained, your ordination is valid for life or as long as you choose to remain an AMM minister. If you wish to renounce your status as an AMM minister, you can do so from your minister account. If you need assistance doing so, you can contact us and we will have your account deactivated for you.
