You Feel Called to Spread The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Christian Global Outreach Ministries is devoted to equipping Christians to spread the Gospel throughout the ends of the earth.

It is our heart to provide  information, community, and ordination support to strengthen  ministers and spread the message of Jesus Christ.

Our foundation is  Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”.

Amazing ministers like you help us to get it done!

You Have Been Asked To Officiate A Wedding

You may not feel led to minister traditionally, but have been asked to officiate a wedding or other ceremony.

As a wedding officiant, you are also part of God's ministry.  Our view of marriage is defined in Matthew 19:4-6​ .

We offer support, wedding officiant information, and research support; to help you be successful for your big day.

More Info About Ordination for Weddings

We Believe that God calls one to ministry.

While we provide the necessary documentation to be recognized by local municipalities to do weddings and other government sanctioned activities, it is our mission to provide our ministers with regular information and online support to do whatever God calls you to do.

We are a bridge. 

Christian Global Outreach Ministries began in Nashville, TN to bridge people who wanted to become Christian ministers with the ability to do so.


If family, work and life schedules don't allow you to go through a lengthy ordination process or seminary program, you can feel secure that we provide trusted ordination to people from many walks of life who have a call on their lives for ministry or were asked to officiate a wedding. 


You Won't Be Alone

Our Ministry Resource Center  provides ceremony scripts, fundraising help, counseling templates and other ministerial resources.

We have a super engaged community of ministers, wedding officiants, chaplains, street ministers, and other amazing ministry team members who are here to help you win.


We provide ongoing training and support with learning that fits your schedule.  A certificate is awarded after the completion of each course.

Our online directory connects you with other ministers as well as gives you the opportunity to share your ministry with others who may need you.

Our yearly Seed Grant gives money to those Ministers In Action who are making a difference in their communities and the world.

Online ordination is not for everyone.

The majority of  the communication to and from our ministers is actively done online.    That is important to consider when seeking ordination online.  If you need more hands on support, a local ministry may be a much better fit.

We have an amazing online-support ministry team who are committed to supporting and providing connection points for those who are ordained through us. We are here for you, so that you can be there for those you serve.

We have over 5000 men and women across the US and internationally who were ordained through us and are doing amazing things in ministry.
