Can we write and submit our own ceremony to the officiant?
Yes! Our ministers would be glad to accept a ceremony as long as they are comfortable reading the content. We leave it to the discretion of the minister to decide if the ceremony content can be used. Feel free to send in a ceremony you would like to have read.

Yes! We have other counselors in the area when a referral is needed. We try our best to handle matters with a client before a referral is made. If we are not able to assist, we will be glad to refer you to a specialized counselor to address the issue you are facing.
Do you perform same-sex weddings?
We do not perform the weddings of same-sex couples. Because it is prohibited by Scripture and our ordination counsel, we will not be able to perform this type of ceremony. (Leviticus 18:22)
Must I be saved to have a wedding service with you?
We do not require a couple to be saved to receive any of our services. We do require that couples be saved to hold a Christian Ceremony. In cases where either one or both are not saved, a non-religious ceremony will be offered. We believe that Christians shouldn't be unequally yoked together and highly recommend for Christians to marry other Christians in an attempt to follow the commands from the Scriptures. (2 Corinthians 6:14)
