An Established Ministry   World Christianship Ministries is an established ministry with extensive experience in providing ordination by mail for sincere Christians. In addition to offering you a quick way to ordination, we also offer phone support in case you have questions. We have ordained individuals as Christian clergy in every state of the USA and in over 85 foreign countries. All over the world you find Christian ministers that we ordained, each knowing that ordination was that important first step needed to start a church or ministry. World Christianship Ministries is considered Ordination Central for becoming a Christian ordained minister in a simple way.

Certificate of Ordination   Your Certificate of Ordination, or Minister's license, will be your authority to begin this new chapter of your life. Start your own church, ministry or just do wedding ceremonies. World Christianship Ministries is a Christian nondenominational ministry. Aside from ordination, Bible studies and other services offered, we also provide support and Commitment.

Fast Ordination! Yes, if necessary you can be Ordained the same day we have your application in hand.

Some people have a need for being ordained quick.  Usually that is because they would like to officiate at a wedding, and the date for that wedding is very close.  If you FAX in your application or Call in your application and tell us you need your ordination document right away, we can Scan your original Ordination Certificate and E-Mail it to you that same day as a PDF attachment to your E-Mail.  Or, we can FAX you a copy of your original Ordination document if you prefer.  Having this type of Ordination document works in almost all states if you have a wedding to perform.  We will then mail out your original documents within 1-2 business days.  If you FAX the application to us, be sure to mention you need a copy of your Ordination document quick, and the reason, and write in your E-Mail address or FAX number somewhere on the application. Be sure to print VERY Clearly, and be sure to put your phone number on the application in case we have any questions.  If you live in Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Hawaii, Nevada or New York City, extra steps are necessary for doing weddings. You can find the complete Marriage Laws in those states and all states using the interactive Map of the USA below.  In each of these states and New York City (but not the rest of New York), it could take several days or longer to get approval to do weddings.  If you have any questions, as always, just give us a call.  Ministry phone number:  (559) 297-4271
