Unlike some On-Line and Church Ordination sites such as the ULC etc.. The Christic Ministry is an outgrowth of years of study and formation of Sanctus Theological Institute.
For too long Churches ordained according to a set of dogmatic rules or by the dictates of a few within a set standard designed to meet their own church's requirement. Since we are non-denominational and support "Individuals" we seek to meet your needs on an individual basis.
A request for ordination demonstrates to us purposeful intent regarding the acceptance of such a calling. We offer an authentic means to become a Pastor, Reverend, Minister, or Cleric. Whether you are wishing to qualify for the ministry for a specific reason, or set up your church or ministry, we are here to help.
After you receive your ordination, you are a recognized cleric by our seminary. Your name and date of ordination will be placed in our data base for future reference and validation.
Please note: Letters of Membership in Good Standing are provided for our students and graduates, only. In this way we uphold our ethical standing with the community by providing authentic letters for individuals we have had the opportunity to get to know and that are truly a member of our seminary. We provide this service for free and as needed. You may elect to receive our Certification of Ordination or go on to earn a Certificate in Pastoral Chaplaincy or Domestic Violence Chaplaincy, or even further to study for one of our Religious Degree Programs.
