I began as a minister for “The First Church of United Fellowship” and now an ordained minister with “The Church of Interfaith Christians “. I have been a minister for 6 years, a member of the choir at “Saint Andrews Lutheran Church”. My earliest interests began as a professional vocalist and emcee in a wedding band for over 20 years I sang in the ceremonies and the receptions (over a thousand) finally awaking one day to realize my calling for God as a minister was to unite people in marriage. I am so happy and blessed that I can be a part of officiating the wedding vows and the relationship commitment since I have worked so hard in learning how and why marriages can work and how to keep a marriage healthy.
I have learned not to judge other people by their beliefs or religion. By raising 3 children into adults, I have learned to cherish this fact. Besides, there are fundamental components that make a marriage work out and most of the time both partners can draw from the whatever supreme being they know best to get the most positive answers in life. Sometimes they need help and sometimes if they dig deep for the right answers the communication, compatibility and minor issues are resolved.
By the way, your ceremony can be religious, or non religious, as most importantly to me is the love between each couple. Many of couples that I have officiated for have some kind of religious upbringing but are not always practicing. (If they were, they would get married in a church or other house of worship.) That’s OK. I will not force my Christian religion on to your ceremony.
