Dear Andrée,

We want you to have the information you need to help in your ministerial endeavors. Our ministry does not charge membership fees, ordinations are 100% free and granted for life. Our official credentials are not state-specific, they are valid in all 50 states. Open Ministry is a church registered with the State of California; with the purpose to guide and support the church in its mission, outreach, and community services. Our Ministry has the right and privilege to ordain ministers. Our ministers have the same powers and rights as ordained clergy for religious ceremonies, weddings, and other sacerdotal rites.

Marriage laws vary per state and county, it is important to be familiarized and know the ministerial requirements set forth by your state and local government. States can require official documentation to register with the County Clerk or Agency that records marriages in the County you want to perform ceremonies. Contact the county clerk or agency that will be issuing the couple’s marriage license for information, see our Marriage Laws for details at:

Please contact the agency that registers ministers to find out what their requirements are and if they will recognize a US based ordination.

When speaking with the county clerk; it can be helpful to use the following phrases:

• What agency or department issues marriage licenses in your county and how may I contact them?
• I am an ordained minister with a church in California and I would like to register as a wedding Officiant in your county to perform and solemnize weddings.
• I have my Letter of Good Standing and/or Ordination Credential as proof of my ministry and ordination.
• What additional documentation is required for me to register as a wedding Officiant in your county?

We are pleased to offer you our services; we appreciate your support of Open Ministry. If you have questions after reading our Minister Guide, you can visit our informative FAQ section. Please let us know if you would like additional information or if there is anything else we can assist you with by contacting us at

Received my Minister Package shortly after my ordination (11.01.20). Very well put together, with everything needed to get started.
My fiance's daughter wants to marry next year, and asked if I would get my ordination to officiate her wedding - I was honored!
But, I hope to further myself in offering my services to others as well, and - most importantly - be able to spread positivity, blessings, and the Good Word to those that have an ear to hear!
Thank you for your services and mission. Praying that your Goodworks organizations are blessed by your goodwill to everyone!
