  • Zach and I decided to get married very last minute, after being together for 10 yrs. We decided to travel from Seattle where we live to Pennsylvania where I’m from. My grandmother just passed and we wanted to get married at my grandparents house while my grandfather was still with us, very small and intimate. It was challenging to find a pastor that would marry us without marriage counseling, or an ordained individual that would appreciate the reason we were doing this. My parents found pastor Chris! We communicated over txting And emails he was always so prompt with his responses. Pastor Chris was more then we could have asked for. He has was welcoming towards us, respectful, and genuine. He walked us through everything while asking what we would like for the ceremony. He also has a great sense of humor! I woul highly recommend pastor Chris! And if we did it all over again planned every detail months in advance I would be SURE to have pastor Chris be the one to marry us! ... Read more

  • When our daughter Sarah in Seattle told us she wanted to get married back in Pennsylvania and in front of her 94 year old grandfather on hospice, we were so excited. Then she told us she wanted to do it in three weeks, and by the way could we get the pastor because we live in Pennsylvania. Uh-oh. We found a few "ordained and willing" people online but we knew they weren't right for the occasion. We kept looking and then we saw a friendly face. Pastor Chris. We reached out and received a quick reply phone call. While talking to Pastor Chris we quickly realized he was the right person. Over the 3 weeks leading up to the ceremony we communicated to Pastor Chris by phone, email and text. We found Pastor Chris to be very fair, kind, accommodating and most of all gracious. He offered much advice to all of us and put our minds at ease. On the day of the wedding Pastor Chris arrived early and performed an excellent ceremony, the exact ceremony Sarah and her new husband Zach wanted. All in al... Read more

    Wedding on 9/28/19: working with this family was wonderful. Sarah and Zach are a great couple who clearly love each other. They were open to suggestions and ideas. And it was just a touching thing to know that they both wanted Sarah's grandfather to be part of their special day. Sarah's parents are amazing people to talk to and to get to know. A ceremony I will not forget for some time.

  • Pastor Chris was so wonderful to work with for our wedding. He spent time with us during the planning process to learn who we are to build that relationship. He took time for a rehearsal to explain the flow of the ceremony so we were better prepared for the day of the wedding. The day of the ceremony, we had to ask Pastor Chris to shorten the ceremony due to me getting sick from being nervous. He was so understanding and did a fantastic job on making sure I was comfortable and okay and shorten the ceremony as I asked. I highly recommend Pastor Chris to all my family and friends who are planning a wedding!!

  • Pastor Chris was amazing to work with! He was very responsive, and took time to listen to and understand what we wanted and needed. He also gave us very helpful suggestions we would not have thought of otherwise. He did not force any particular religious view, or pre-marital counseling, but instead acted as a trusted advisor if we needed it. I would recommend Pastor Chris to any type of couple!

    Bentley and Alan were wonderful to work with. In spite of the challenges of this time of the pandemic, they were intentional about the wedding ceremony and also concerned the safety and wellbeing of all the guests and people involved at the wedding.

  • Exceptional. Spiritual and respectful. An asset to our LGBTQ community and everyone else who live and reside close to Carlisle, PA. Will attend his services when the quarantine is lifted. For now, we couldn’t have asked for better, and he even did part of the ceremony in Hawaiian language as we couldn’t go there as planned. Memorable day!!!

    I was honored to be able to work with Stephen and Doug and officiate their wedding. I was pleased to be able to utilize the Hawaiian language in order to make a connection to the place where they wanted to be. Wonderful Couple!

  • My Husband and I chose Pastor Chris to perform our 10th Anniversary Vow Renewal. We absolutely made an excellent choice. He was easy to work with and captured the essence of who we are as a Couple perfectly! We worked strictly online, via the phone and through emails prior to our small, intimate Service. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend Pastor Chris.

    Scott and Serena are a wonderful couple and I was thrilled to be able to officiate their Vow Renewal ceremony. All the best to the two of you!
