Open Ministry - Get Ordained, Online Ordinations

I got my package in the mail but was damaged by post office and I have tried calling before closing time and get no answer. I don't know if I have to buy the ceremony booklet again or not. When it came in the mail it was soaked and the post office said It happened in transport.
I pray that the Lord leads me in the ways that I should be going I believe being ordained by open ministry can help me accomplish the Lord's way
Since becoming Ordained 2014, the Lord has opened up many doors not only for performing weddings, but also teaching & preaching. By the Grace of God I was able to counsel & officiate weddings for friends & family members in various states, I thank God for bringing me to Open Ministry! Pastor Joe
Great to be part of the family. Glory to God in the Highest.
I filled out my application to become ordained on this website but I’m not sure if I’m ordained or if I will receive and paperwork to verify my credentials so I can perform at my daughters wedding
I'm from England. As a Minister through OM am I allowed to wear a dog collar with a shirt. OM don't sell them?
Thank you so very much for the services that you have given us to learn; an opportunity to get out and preach the word of God to others and to perform the things that we are allowed to do. I am very thankful for Open Ministry for my ordination and I have been able to refer Open Ministry to others who feel the calling of the Lord. Thank you so very much, and God bless you all.
Now I'm ordained does that mean I'm an ordained minister. Am I a Reverend. Incredible I thought as a Christian I have to go to Bible college for 10 years.

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
Thanks to Oministry, I've been able to help people achieve their dreams for one of the biggest days of their lives. I've performed traditional services, religious and secular, and even some non-traditional services, including a Halloween service (I was dressed as a gnome, the couple as Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin in Beetlejuice), a hospital wedding, and a prison wedding. It's a blessing to be a part of these people's lives.
I used your service and it was excellent! The paper work arrived very quickly and was all in order and beautifully displayed! I brought everything into the Clay County Courthouse in Moorhead, MN and all was perfect! I was honored to be the Officient at our friends wedding this past Saturday July 30th in Stillwater, Mn.
