A Minister For Your Wedding Day


A Day to Always Remember

Your Wedding should be romantic and vivacious, joyous and festive, a unique event that reflects your personalities and styles. I am here to ensure it is memorable in all the ways you have dreamed about.

So many couples today cherish their own beliefs. The generations of today unite a mixture of religious background; it becomes even more important for individuals to create their own life rituals that reflect who they are today, and who they will become as a couple tomorrow. You wedding will be one of the most important events in your life, it should reflect you both.

Together, we will customize your ceremony in a way that honors your individuality as a couple. We will work together to design a meaningful service that goes beyond what is traditional without losing the sanctity of the moment at hand. Whether you are seeking a ceremony that is more religious or desire a ceremony that truly reflects your approach to life, let's do it together to make this an event you will always look upon fondly and treasure for the rest of your lives!

As your Wedding Officiant, I will be able to guide you with the words best to use from the meaningful wedding vows and chosen readings to the declaration of marriage, and presentation of the new couple, at a pace that allows you to cherish each and every moment. You will use this opportunity to express publicly the deep and abiding love you feel for one another.

After the ceremony is over, we will take a moment to complete the marriage license, and I will file it with the county where the ceremony was held, as well as forward a copy to you for your records.

Renewal of Vows

Saying I Love You Deeply, Again

I would be honored to serve as your minister when you wish to renew your commitment to your loved one through a Renewal of Vows Ceremony. We can keep things very simple, or as elaborate as you wish. It can be a moment to stop and reflect on the time that has gone by, and also a chance to ask God to bless the years ahead.

Let's work together to create your ideal Renewal of Vows Ceremony. There's no time like now to bless a life already lived together and ask God to keep the love strong for the future.


Celebrate Your Gift From Above

Are you considering having your child baptized? What a wonderful way to celebrate your special gift from above.

We will work together while you let me know what you envision for the Baptism, and I will find the right words and elements that respect your wishes. We can hold the Baptism wherever you feel the most comfortable. No elements of your traditions or beliefs will be left out.

The Baptism shall be recognized before God, with all the hopes and dreams that you have for your child. Few things bring greater joy to my heart or a smile to my face then praying for, and blessing your child through a Baptism.

Adult Baptism

Baptisms are not just for infants. Sometimes, people find their way to belief when they are older. I enjoy ministering at these kind of heart-touching, reverent events; helping individuals commit their life to God and perhaps also to their church through a Baptism.

We can meet together to discuss what has brought you to this point in your life, what is expected of you and what you can expect from this God-honoring celebration of your renewed spiritual life. Let's work together to find the right words, to express what's in your heart. We will also include any customs or traditions that you would like to include in your Baptism.

There may be no greater way for a person to exhibit the essence of themselves, than through this important step of faith.


Home Blessing

Beginning New or Starting Anew

From the front lawn to the back yard, and through each room of the house, a home is more than four walls and a roof. It's a place of love and abundance, peace and balance, healing, laughter and more. I also consider it a gift from God. I would be honored to ask God to bring abundant blessings into your home.

Have you been in your existing home for a while? I can pray a blessing over your home as a way to make a fresh start in a familiar place. Celebrate the life you have at the address where you live. Experience the present joys as well as the future desires you have for your home with a house blessing.

I can design a message based on our discussion of your family's individual characteristics and desires for the home. The blessings can be, a simple event or as detailed and varied as you would like. It will be perfectly tailored for you.

Business Blessing

Success is the Goal

From the office door to the shop floor, God can bless a business to bring the owners joy and prosperity amidst the everyday challenges. Bless your business in a ceremony we create together for your company.
Let the message reflect the distinct characteristics of your organization, it mission, vision, and values. I will be sure to incorporate those things that make your venture unique. If you would also like to include a spiritual focus, I would be happy to do so. It's up to you. It's your life work. You decide what needs to be said.

Since employees form the foundation for your success, you may want to consider a special blessing on them. It would seem right to include everyone who contributes to your success. However the ceremony takes shape, I am here to serve you.
