Don't know how accurate the information below is.

Found it at this web site:

Solemnization Authority: Within the 30-day period after the marriage license is issued, the marriage must be "solemnized" by one of the following:

• A clergyman or clergywoman, active or retired, who is in good standing with any church or synagogue in Missouri;

• A Circuit Court or Associate Circuit Court judge (who are prohibited by a Missouri Constitutional provision from receiving any compensation for the service);

• A religious society, institution or organization in Missouri of which either marriage party is a member, in accordance with the organization's regulations and customs.

Within 90 days after the marriage ceremony, the person solemnizing the marriage must complete the marriage certificate issued with the marriage license and return it to the office of the issuing Recorder. Lack of witnesses does not render a marriage invalid. However, two witnesses can submit an affidavit that the marriage ceremony took place if the certificate is lost or destroyed and the person who solemnized the marriage is unavailable.

I am 99% sure it is as simple as filling out the form online go to ULCdotORG and click "become a minister".

I should become a steamboat captain regardless, but can you really do a wedding if all you have is an online thing?

You could become a ship captain... in Missouri I guess that would be a steamboat captain. I did online for free through a non-denominational "church" and I am officially an atheist reverend.

Anybody know if there is a way I can become a wedding officiant in Missouri without getting ordained.

I'm excited to see there's an atheist group in Columbia! I'm in (very) rural MO right now but I may be moving there soon.

Thanks Peggy,
For some reason the link didn't work for me so, I'll repost in case it doesn't work for someone else.
