Want to perform legal marriages for your friends and family? Getting ordained in the United Church of Bacon is the first step. Then you must apply to your local city or state through a clerk’s office. (Just to reiterate, getting our certificate is not enough by itself to perform weddings. You must take your certificate to your local clerk’s office and make a further application based on local and state laws.)
As a “friar” of the United Church of Bacon, you help others through their biggest life transitions. You speak words of comfort at a funeral. You channel their hopes and dreams for a newborn child’s ceremony. You celebrate the best day of their lives when they get married.
You will play a central role in a day that they and their guests will never forget. And you can help them do it in a way that is meaningful to them, free from mainstream religions and God.
It’s a wonderfully fulfilling way to make a difference in the world.
Officiants must follow four rules:
Apply below and we will get back to you quickly. If you are approved, you will get a certificate that you can print and bring to your local clerk’s office. They can direct to whatever other paperwork must be submitted. The United Church of Bacon is a real, legal church. If you get pushback and discrimination, contact us for help.
Is there a secret to getting approved? Yes! Don’t send in a joke application or one-line answers. Let us get to know you a little. We have great fun with our bacon name, but for legal reasons, please apply only if you actually intend to perform officiant services, and tell us something real about yourself and your aspirations, so that we may consider you seriously. Nearly everyone who puts real thought into their application gets approved.
The default title given is “officiant”. If you’d like a different title, you can provide it in the form below as part of your application.
Note: Your application will be approved within 10 business days. If you have not received your approval email, check your junk mail folder and mark our email as NOT SPAM. Your clergy certificate might not open unless it is coming from a whitelisted email.
