Christian Wedding Chaplains Association – It’s all in our name…


CWCA members believe that the Bible is the only true guide for Christian living and that salvation is achieved through faith and trusting that only through Jesus Christ can we have a right relationship with God, the creator of heaven and earth.


CWCA members are Musicians, DJs, Photo Booth Operators, Photographers, Venue owners, and other wedding professionals. CWCA offers a legal, credible and verifiable way for them to add “Wedding Officiant” to their list of services.


In order to officiate a wedding, you are required to be ordained, and in some cases licensed, by an approved religious ministry that is verifiable and traceable. Being a CWCA member meets this requirement.


For an ordination to be unquestionable, the organization that issues it must be more than a website. The CWCA is a 501c3 religious organization registered  in the State of Virginia.

If you serve the wedding industry, then you need to be able to officiate a wedding a ceremony.

Although there are far fewer “Online Ordination Mills” than a few years ago, finding an organization that you can trust is still difficult. While many claim that “Free, Easy, Legal” ordinations are valid in all states, they often fail to meet the requirements of state statutes. While it has yet to be tested, it is possible that weddings performed by “Ministers” ordained specifically for the purpose of marrying people could be problematic in the future. Because the CWCA satisfies all the requirements of being a 501c3 religious organization, ordained members can confidently perform marriage ceremonies and other services.



When you join the CWCA, your ordination is backed by a recognized, established organization—

Christian Wedding Chaplains provides you with the tools, training and license you need to add “CWCA Certified Wedding Chaplain” to your business card.
