» Under what authority can you certify people?

LCI is under the umbrella of Life Celebration Ministries (LCM). LCM is a government recognized religious denomination with 501c3 designation. As a denomination we can appoint people as clergy of our organization and subsequently grant certification to officiate Life Celebrations.

» How much does the training and certification cost?

See our fees page for more information.

» Do you offer online training and certification?

Yes. The nature of weddings is very personal and intimate. When possible, couples and families meet face to face with their Life Celebration Specialist in order to ensure there is a connection. In keeping with the importance of connection, we require every one interested in certification with LCI to meet our leadership team face to face via zoom. We want to meet you and connect with you. We know that inspiration and influence happens best in person not online. 

» What is the total annual fee?

See our fees page for more information.

» Why is there an annual fee?

Instead of asking for a royalty for each event we ask you to pay a minimal upfront annual fee.

Ordination is available to those who require it.

9:00am - 2:00pm both days.

» How do I get Life Celebrations?

Every member of LCI is responsible to market, build and expand their own ministry/business. We are not a brokerage firm that sends events to you. It is up to you to be successful in growth.

» Do you offer additional training?

Yes. We offer courses on personal and professional development.

» What resources are made available?

The basic course offers a great deal of information on getting started as a successful Life Celebration Specialist.
