understanding ordination 

  • Ordination is made possible through our partner organization, Life Celebration Ministries (LCM).
  • LCM is able to offer ordination for those who may seek it for the purpose of meeting local or state requirements for officiating weddings and funerals.
  • Ordination is for the purpose of officiating Life Celebrations only, not word and sacrament.
  • Candidates must complete all the requirements for certification to qualify for ordination.
  • Ordination with LCM is not transferable and will no longer be recognized by LCM once a member leaves.
  • Ordination is done by one of the facilitators or founders of LCM.
