UNITED FAITH MINISTRIES
My ministry is basically just a wedding ministry, although I do funerals and
other religious services. I am not formally trained through any recognized
seminary nor associated with any main stream religions.
My certificate of ordination was granted by The United Faith Ministries
- granted by Rev. Joseph B. Gines, D.D. (Chancellor of Dean of Education for
United Faith Ministry - Department of Education, in McAlpin, Florida)
I was awarded from United Faith Ministry the following: a Doctor of Christian
Life Counseling Degree; An Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree;
a Confirmation of Communion, a certificate that conferred the title of
Ordained Reverend Doctor; a Certificate of Ordination.
I do not have a formal church however, I give Sunday religious services
once a month at a Senior's Assisted Living Residence in Elk Grove, California
and at other locales throughout northern California . This ordination was
not difficult to obtain and it is open to almost anyone who believes that they
have a calling or a need to be ordained. It is not the credentials
that makes a person spiritual - that is something that you cannot purchase or
be trained for. I make no pretense that I am basically anything more
than a "mail order" minister. I do not wish to mislead anyone to believe
anything other than what I represent here in this disclosure.
The address at the time of my ordination for the United Faith Ministries was the following:
The United Faith Ministry
Department of Education and Ordination
P.O. Box 310
McAlpin, Florida 32062-010
Statement of my Faith
I believe in one God.
I believe that we are all His children.
I accept and honor all faiths - as seekers of the one true God and
respect their followers.
I believe in love, the power of forgiveness, compassion,
I do not argue about what other people choose to believe - each person has a
right to their own path without my judgments or condemnation.
It is very simple - do unto others and treat them all as you would want
them to treat you.
I am always available free of any charges or fees to all
veteran organizations or peace groups for chaplain services.
