The Rites of Matrimony

The Reverend James A. McKissick has been an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church since 1995. In existence since 1959, the Universal Life Church is headquartered in Modesto, California, and has congregations around the world. ULC ministers come from all walks of life and spiritual traditions. Our common thread is our adherence to the universal doctrine of religious freedom. Every person has the natural right to peacefully determine what is right for them. The Universal Life Church wants you to pursue your spiritual beliefs without interference from any outside agency, including government or church authority.

Each wedding is customized to suit the couple's own style and beliefs, from highly Spiritual to Humanist.
