WEDDINGS! - As a ULC minister, you would be legal to perform weddings throughout the United States. We have extensive training available on the website. Some people have expressed difficulty in navigating the site, because of its size and their lack of comfort using the internet, so we have created an external site that has all the wedding information in one much-smaller site. It can be reached by clicking: Universal Life Church Wedding Training. We're adding more to it all the time.
As a ULC (Universal Life Church) minister, you can legally officiate at anyone's wedding ceremony and/or you can make weddings, funerals, baptisms, house blessings, etc. your business. You can even start your own ministry and share your beliefs with others. The Universal Life Church is interfaith and non-denominational. We have many ministers who are performing ministries for the poor, the sick and the incarcerated. Some work to protect children from harm or spend time doing good works. We believe in doing that which is right and it is a pleasure to see the wide variety of ways that this motto is expressed. If you are already an ordained minister through the Universal Life Church or any other church, but feel as though you would like more ministerial training on spiritual or religious matters OR you would just like to add more credibility to your minister license, you've come to the right place. We are a registered church in our own right and have begun this online seminary to improve the quality and education of ministers worldwide. It's a minimum of a one-year seminary that's free to join. There are fees for classes, but as a seminary student, you will receive exclusive information not made available to the general public. Please follow the seminary link to read more information about our program and to see our ever-increasing list of classes available. You can also join the free aspect of the program while deciding which courses you would like to take. To read essay from those who have taken the various classes, go to SEMINARY.

Our Wedding Officiant Training Pack will provide you with all the materials you need to start you on your way. We also offer exceptional materials to aide you in your quest for knowledge, your quest for credibility, and your quest for finding and following your spiritual path.
COMMUNITY - We welcome everyone, regardless of your belief system. Through our regular newsletters, discussion boards, and the many materials we post that are submitted by ministers just like you, we strive to increase the worldwide sense of community among all our ULC brothers and sisters. We want you to express your views on our discussion board, send your sermons to firstname.lastname@example.org and share your own ceremonies and stories with us. The goal of this church and this website is to give you an opportunity to be part of a larger spiritual community where you can learn and grow from one another. We value your input.
We welcome you into the ULC community and ask only that you follow the Universal Life Church's two tenets: To Do That Which is Right (as long as it doesn't infringe on the rights of others) and to allow for the Freedom of Religion.
Please explore the site and feel free to offer your valuable opinions and ideas with us. We are a recognized site of the Universal Life Church, offering you the highest quality materials and training available.
If there is anything I can do to help you along your spiritual (or business) path, please don't hesitate to ask.

Become a MinisterStorybook projectFor Jo Anne and Robert Mauck going to prison has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of their lives. Granted, the Maucks weren't behind bars for committing a crime. The members of Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, Damascus, MD., have been volunteering with The Community of St. Dysmas, a congregation within the Maryland correctional system. St. Dysmas held its first services in the state's Correctional Institution for Women in 1985. The Maucks attended their first service in 1989. And earlier this year, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich honored their volunteer efforts with a certificate of appreciation. "I will never forget the date we first went because it was my birthday," JoAnne said. "My husband said, 'You don't want to go down there today.' But I said, 'I think God wants me to skip this dinner and do this instead.' " From that first visit, the Maucks knew that this was a calling for them. "This work is mandated in Matthew 25," R

“Loving Reiki” Or Confessions of a Reiki TherapistAs a Reiki practitioner and teacher for the past ten years, I have had the absolute joy and pleasure of experiencing the remarkable results of my clients healing and recovery from both chronic and acute illnesses. I have been blessed and witnessed many miraculous outcomes.The healing capacity Reiki energy possesses is as infinite as our human minds can create or imagine. The energy comes from the universal source of pure love. I don’t know of anything pure love cannot heal, do you?When I practice Reiki I am graced with the delight of being a conduit for this beautiful, immeasurable, light and love passing through me to the person I am laying hands on or sending energy, too!My own personal healing from Reiki took place ten years ago. I had been in a five-year long divorce battle that threatened to alienate me from my children. I was traumatized, emotionally and spiritually blocked. I was stuck and suf

Universal Life Church Well I can say this. I became ordained through ULC because:1. It is a lot easier getting credentials from ULC and you do not have to build a church immediately.2. I do most of my preaching in Nightclubs. Flogger in one hand Bible in the other preaching The Word of God in BDSM Nightclubs. How I got the nickname the Evil Wicked Cardinal of Evil. :devil: 3. I have vast knowledge of The Bible and know where most of the relics are which are described in the Bible.4. I love a good debate on religion. I never lost a debate yet. For it is the individual on how they interpret The Bible.5. I go to religious seminars where my vast knowledge improves religion. And, I talk on my own experiences. 6. ULC is the best place to start as an ordained minister. But, when you preach never implement ULC in any way shape or form. I never tell anyone about my credentials with ULC. I let my knowledge of The Bible do the talking.7. People ask me where I became a Minis

Universal Life Church I became ordained because there was something inside of me that said I should help other people realize their spiritualism without the confines of being associated with an organized religion. Tolerance for all beliefs is the key to true peace and spiritualism may come in many forms. Doing that which is right is an excellent motto to live by for anyone and I do my best to spread this message. Whether you believe in God or gods or an order in the universe or whatever it might be that helps you to center yourself in life. All should have an open mind and respect that others might not feel the same way as you do, but that there is nothing wrong with what is spiritually important to you and how you feel about it and express it. Live and let live.Rev. Dr. RickULC******************************* The Universal Life Church is a comprehensive online seminary where we have classes in Christianity, Wicca, Paganism, two courses in Metaphysics and much more.&nbs

Hello Everybody,I read a book called The Underground Economy (about self employment), and one of the chapters mentioned the Universal Life Church . Because this book was published in 2005, it printed the former web site. Nevertheless, upon checking Google, I read the note under the different web sites and clicked onto the seminary site. Later, I joined. At this point, I'm not trying to perform weddings, baptisms, funerals, etc. However, I do find the web sites for ulc to be interesting reading.I was raised Roman Catholic, but my parents also allowed me to attend a Lutheran bible school. The Lutherans didn't mind that I was Catholic, but the RC church didn't like my going to one of those "Protestant" churches! By the itme I was a teenager, I disagreed with several of the beliefs of the RC Church and looked into different Christian churches, Jewish synagogues, and Buddist temples. At that time, I felt drawn to the Episcopal Church and in my 20s, I was received into
