We believe marriage is a universal right. All people should be able to get married, whether they gay, stright, lesbian, or trans. Marriage is not about sexual orientation, it is about love.
American Marriage Ministries is a carbon neutral organization. Marriage is about two people creating a future together. We believe it is important for our organization to play a small role in working towards a better future.

Your ordination is free. Period. You do not have to pay us to remain a minister of our church.
Ordination is a one-time thing. Once you are a minister you remain a minister as long as you wish.
You don’t have to give us a percentage of your income to remain in good standing. That’s not how we operate.
Our ordination is based on having a sincere intent to perform marriage. No koolaid required.

Officiating Weddings is a Powerul Experience.
My best friend asked me to officiate his wedding. I said sure, not really knowing what I was getting myself into. AMM helped immensely in preparing me for the wedding. Officiating the ceremony was such an honor and a lot of fun!
