You are about to become an ordained minister of the
Universal Life Church, Modesto, California.

Ordinations are conducted several times each week, so normally you will hear from us within a day or two. We do not furnish this information to any outside organization for any purpose. Your privacy is carefully guarded. There is no charge or obligation associated with your ordination. Ordination is for life, without cost, and without question of faith.

Read carefully before applying for ordination:

Please avoid using the same email address for more than one person if at all possible. The email address is used as a record identifier and must be unique for each person. Do not submit someone for ordination without their permission and approval.

Each request is reviewed for completeness. You must include a complete, legal name. Spiritual names and initials only are unacceptable for ordination records. If your legal name is initials only, or your legal name is one word only, include this information in your application, or it will be rejected. Frivolous names will be rejected whenever we notice them. If your parents had a sense of humor when naming you, we may reject your application initially, but upon explanation, we will reconsider. No one is rejected because of their name, but we must protect the integrity of the records against those who fraudulently submit requests for pets, obscene names, etc. Applying for ordination in the name of a fictitious person or animal, or the submission of a person's name without his or her permission is fraud, and may subject you to prosecution!

Please understand that there is no such thing as "instant online ordination." A computer cannot ordain you. Your request must be reviewed before your ordination can be done legally. You cannot be issued a credential automatically by a computer!

We take this rite seriously and hope that you do as well. With that said, welcome to the Universal Life Church and its Minister's Association.

Note: If you have applied for ordination through the Universal Life Church in Modesto, CA (ulchq.com), The ULC Online (ulc.net) or the ULC Seminary (ulcseminary.org) please do not apply for ordination through this website. Ordination requests from here. ulc.net and ulcseminary.org are forwarded to the Church Headquarters in Modesto and applying again through multiple sites causes extra work for our already busy friends at headquarters. Thank you.

Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible
