  • I’m so glad we chose Pastor Chris to officiate our wedding ceremony. When we first met with him he was super engaging, told us he was excited to be a part of our day, and made us feel very comfortable with everything. After that he periodically checked in with us to see how things were going and even offered some advice. When it came to writing the ceremony, Pastor Chris had a great outline to use, but allowed us to choose how we wanted things to go and was open to incorporating anything special we wanted. At the same time, he was also able to offer suggestions for parts we were unsure about, which was very helpful. On our wedding day the ceremony went very smoothly, and afterwards several of our guests told us how much they enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend Pastor Chris to anyone.

  • We had such a great experience with Pastor Chris! He really helped us understand that it was our day and not to worry about everyone else so we didn’t get overwhelmed. We had to change our venue the month before our wedding and he was very flexible with any changes we needed to make. He did such a great job and we highly recommend him!!

    Jessica and Michael are a very kind couple, and it was great working with them. Some of their plans changed due to the pandemic, but the day of their wedding went smoothly and they both did a wonderful job. Best wishes to them!

  • 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! We had our wedding in Mount Union, PA and he was willing to travel with no issues. Pricing was very reasonable and he made the whole process very easy. He was focused on giving us a ceremony that we would be completely happy with and making sure our special day went smoothly with the least amount of stress on us as possible. Many of our family members expressed how much they liked the ceremony and asked how we found the officiant and what church he is affiliated with because they were that impressed with his services. Without Pastor Chris, I don’t think our wedding day would’ve have been nearly as enjoyable.

    Cheyenne and Brian were enjoyable to work with, planning out their day to represent them. The ceremony went smoothly, and I was happy to be able to help make their wedding day a success.

  • We can’t say enough good things about pastor Chris! He is very understanding and easy to work with. He requires you to meet up with him a couple of times before the wedding, but it’s a great opportunity to get to know each other and he is truly there for whatever you need, and he always will be. Highly recommend!!

  • I would 15/10 recommend Pastor Chris. He was amazing! He made sure to make our wedding about us and not worry about the planning and everything else that comes with it. He helped me not be so stressed out. Pastor Chris asks us multiple questions about what we wanted for our wedding and what we would like done. He was very professional but also like he was apart of our family! I enjoyed his company and how he made jokes with us as we were up in front of people so we weren’t so nervous!

    Bryce and Destiny were a very nice couple, and were invested in how their wedding day occurred. It was easy to talk with them and to plan out the ceremony, and help them with other details.
