Ministry Studies

Online Ordination/Ministry/Celebrant Preparation

Do you want to become a celebrant, a minister or priest, or enhance your ministry?

Global Ministries University offers degree and certificate programs, a Celebrant Training Program, and individual courses to help you reach your ministerial goals!

Becoming a minister or priest, as well as becoming a celebrant, is an important decision and you should know that you are getting a well-rounded education before ordination or taking on the role as a minister. We have excellent online preparation courses to help you study for priesthood or ministry or officiating at weddings and other rites of passage. You can easily study to become a minister or priest or become a celebrant online at your own pace and feel adequately prepared for your ordination/ministerial role.

The requirements to become a minister vary according to how and what you intend to do.  We offer personal counseling to help you discern the appropriate program for your ministerial goals.
