After you complete this brief course you will need to complete two other courses that will equip you with the training needed to become a wedding officiant. All the training and courses required for becoming a wedding officiant are 100% free

After you have completed your training you can go to your local Church or an ordained leader in your area to get prayed over. We pair online ordination training with a local laying on of hands because we believe strongly in the importance of local ordination. After you have completed all the required steps you will become an ordained minister under Christian Leaders Alliance.

After you have become ordained, we encourage you to order your Clergy Recognition Kit. This kit will include the embossed physical copy of your CLA wedding ordination license as well as much more that will provide recognition of the completion of your studies. There is a low-cost fee to order a Recognition Kit, prices depend on the kit you would like to receive.

Christian Leaders Institute partners with Christian Leaders Alliance to make this possible. Christian Leaders Institute provides college-level ministry training and Christian Leaders Alliance oversees a deliberate and responsible act of guiding a licensed or ordination process.

Deliberate and Responsible Act

Why is this clergy process deliberate and responsible? Christian clergy members that are licensed or ordained with the Christian Leaders Alliance complete credible training and are locally recognized for their character and calling as Christian leaders. Here is how the discerning process works.

Step One: Sign up for ministry training that teaches you how to officiate a wedding in Tennessee.

Sign up for ministry training with the Christian Leaders Institute. The Christian Leaders Institute provides free generosity supported ministry courses that can be accessed online using your phone, tablet, or desktop. This formal training includes over 100 ministry courses, including subjects like Officiating a Wedding, Biblical Survey,  Matchmaking Ministry, Chaplaincy, and much more. Each course includes lectures from accredited professors, readings, and quizzes. You receive a grade when you complete the course. The Christian Leaders Institute Courses are accredited by the IABCS

You begin these free generosity supported courses by signing up as a student and completing your admissions course.

Step Two: If you want to officiate a wedding as a licensed clergy member, you will complete the necessary formal training at Christian Leaders Institute.

Here are the courses needed:

Getting Started Scholarship Class (0 Credits) – This course establishes your ministry training scholarship with Christian Leaders Institute.

Wedding Officiant Skills Course (1 Credit) – This course teaches you the skills of the wedding officiant, including each aspect of the preparation, basic counseling, and the wedding event.

Step Three: To officiate a wedding in Tennessee as a licensed clergy member, you will get one recommendation from someone who knows you well.

The third step seeks to ask the question about the character of the person performing a wedding in Tennessee or elsewhere. Is this person a recognized Christian? This recommendation is where the Christian Leaders Alliance comes into the process. The Christian Leaders Alliance has licensed or ordained over 2,400 Christian leaders throughout the world.
