The New Universal Church invites you to learn about our ordination process
Become an Ordained Minister
An ordained minister of the New Universal Church is an interfaith minister accepting all positive spiritual paths and traditions. The NUC minister makes no judgments against any valid churches, denominations, faiths, or traditions that accept the rights of every individual to a personal relationship with their spirituality.
The New Universal Church does not believe that mere tolerance is enough. We ask that our ministers practice joyful acceptance of all other lifestyles and spiritualities.
As a NUC minister you will have the responsibility and legal right to perform all services of the church. This includes spiritual counseling, healing work, readings, performing weddings, baptisms, funeral services, and other traditional religious roles.
There are several different titles that are available to NUC ministers including: Interfaith Minister, Healing Minister, Gnostic Minister, Priest, Shaman, Chaplain, High Priest, High Priestess, and Esoteric Minister.
All of these titles enable you to legally perform weddings, funerals, baptisms, and offer pastoral counseling, including intuitive readings. You may legally attach Reverend, Pastor, Chaplain, etc. to your name, and accept money for your services.
There is no question that the spiritual consciousness of people in general is changing. People are seeking more results from their spirituality and less of the dogma that has been utilized for centuries to dominate and oppress people. With these changes comes the need for more ministers to help with the healing and teaching.
