A: To be blunt, you get what you pay for. Many states simply do not recognize instant "online ordination" as being legally valid. And while the basic Internet "wedding minister credential" may be accepted in some (but not all) states, ordination as a ceremonial minister through First Nation Church and Ministry is valid and accepted in every local jurisdiction across the United States and around the world, and is backed by the strength of our member services team. Beyond that, the nominal administrative fee you pay averages out to about $1.35 per month.
Please note that some locations, including Nevada, Louisiana, Ohio, Minnesota, Virginia, West Virginia, Hawaii, Oklahoma and New York City, have additional registration requirements that must be handled separately with local officials. You should familiarize yourself with your local regulations prior to requesting your credential through any service, or contact us directly for comprehensive assistance.
