Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I'm here to serve your specific need for a Wedding Officiant, marriage preparation and relationship education for marital stability and satisfaction. Your wedding should be the most memorable and remarkable experience for you, and an enjoyment for your family and guests. My job as your Wedding Officiant is an integral part of that end, as well as having an impact on you getting a great start on your marital journey. Being a pastor for over 37 years, it's been a joy celebrating the marriage moment with numerous couples, from young adults to seniors, as a Wedding Officiant. I officiated my first wedding in 1986. I will work to ease any anxiety you may have, especially associated with the main moment of your wedding day by guiding you in preparing a suitable and memorable ceremony of quality; one that expresses the dignity your relationship deserves. For premarital couples, I view their wedding as a celebratory culmination of their preparation for marriage, and an official commencement of their intended life-long love commitment to each other. Research indicates that marital stability and success begins before the wedding day. Thus, I also offer premarital coaching that will help prepare you for every day after your ceremony by furnishing you with the information and skills to increase the probability of you having a satisfying marriage--a relationship that is to last a lifetime. As a certified PREPARE facilitator and PREP instructor, I work to enable couples to embody, experience, and enjoy the satisfaction marriage was intended for. Couples who have received my premarital coaching and preparation service have found the customized couple assessment and relationship education highly beneficial and foundational in strengthening their unique relationship for marital success. I'm sure you will feel the same way. A discount is available for couples who desire both premarital coaching and wedding officiant services. Whether your need is an Officiant for an elaborate wedding or a meaningful elopement, and/or looking for premarital guidance in strengthening your relationship for marriage, I will cherish the invite into your life's journey at this juncture. To get started, MESSAGE ME or REQUEST A CALL TODAY! I look forward to meeting you and the opportunity to make this moment in your life what it was meant to be.

Johnson Beaven is an exceptional premarital counselor. He provides sound, logical, practical, and spiritual advice during his sessions. He isn't just an average counselor because he takes you through tests and requires each couple to actively partake in the experience. My wife and I are working on our 5th year of marriage since premarital counselor with Beaven. #BurningofTheShips was some of the best wisdom ever!!!

Thanks Quran for your review. It was enjoyable working with you and your wife. We had some fun. The trip to Missouri to officiate your wedding was a great getaway for me and my wife, and especially being able to meet your family. #BuringofTheShips

Pastor Beaven was very thorough during our pre- marital counseling. He asked the hard questions that made you take a deeper look into your inner self. He made sure that we were spiritually compatible as well. My favorite part was the compatibility test. The test allowed us to see how both parties viewed things. Oh and I can't forget the weekly homework assignments that get you ready to become ONE on your special day!

Our experience working with Johnson Beaven was beyond what we could’ve imagined. He took the time to get to know us as a couple as well as individuals. We learned so much from Johnson about building and keeping a healthy marriage. If your looking for premarital services I recommend Johnson.

I would highly recommend using Johnson Beaven to officiate your wedding or vow renewal. I utilized his services for our 20th vow renewal. He was prompt, professional, charismatic, and very accommodating to our needs.
Johnson Beaven III's reply
Thanks for your review Cathy. Celebrating and performing your vow renewal on the beach was one of my highlights of that year. Hopefully, we can do your 40th on the beach again. 😄

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer discounts for couples who desire both premarital coaching and wedding officiant services.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm an ordained minister and seminary degreed with a M.A. in Religion (M.A.R) including coursework in pastoral counseling. I'm a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. I've been a certified PREPARE Facilitator and PREP Instructor since 2000. PREPARE stands for PREmarital Personal And Relationship Evaluation. PREPARE is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple's unique strengths and potential growth areas of their relationship. PREP stands for Preventative Relationship Enhancement Program. PREP is based on sound, basic research on marital and family health, and is a rigorously tested model for teaching couples how to communicate, manage conflicts without damaging closeness, protect friendship, enhance commitment, and clarify expectations. I use PREPARE and PREP to help premarital couples better understand their relationship dynamics, and to improve their relationship satisfaction.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    By the nature of my vocation as a Pastor, one of the services expected of me has been to prepare couples for marriage and officiate weddings. I've served premarital and married couples since the 1980s. I officiated my first wedding in 1986. Early in my pastoral ministry, married couples often requested assistance in helping them manage and work through their issues. I became aware that most married couples had received little to no premarital guidance which could have better prepared them for married life, or they lacked the skills and attitudes associated with marital stability and success. I made it a part of my life mission to help premarital couples embrace those attitudes and learn those skills, and provide them spiritual and practical guidance in preparing for married life.
