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 personal statement is required with the application. This is an autobiographical, philosophical and spiritual statement 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 statement, a current photo and the official forms required to request ordination 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.
