What are the requirements for requesting Ordination?

A person should accept the Oneness of all Life. During the ordination ceremony, the applicant is asked to affirm, “I hereby dedicate my life to the brotherhood of mankind.”

A biographical/philosophical statement is required with the application. This is an autobiographical, spiritual bio-sketch delineating your personal path and your purpose in requesting ordination. The essay can be a rich and expanding experience. Take time to allow it to express your uniqueness. Please do not send printed brochures, workshop or seminar flyers, or newsletters you produce. Your personal statement is the key requirement.

Along with your bio-sketch, a current photo, and a data form that contains a formal request for ordination (please fill out completely and legibly) are submitted to the administrative office.

When your application is processed, the Minister/Director nearest you will call you for a personal interview and arrange for your ordination. Your guests are welcome to attend the ceremony.
