Pastor Matthew from the beginning was a very easy going gentleman. He takes his calling very seriously. I felt like I knew him for a long time the first time we talked on the phone. We were very blessed to have him perform our wedding ceremony. His love for God shows in everything he did for us. We highly recommend him for anyone who loves the Lord our God with all their heart . Pastor Matthew is there for us anytime we need spiritual guidance even after our wedding. That's what makes him so special. Thank you so much Pastor Matthew!!🙏❤Jul 14, 2018Verified
Amazing guy. Very very professional and showed up early for our rehearsal and for our wedding and he talked to everybody there and gave everybody respect. He went above and beyond and took pictures on our rehearsal night and returned the next day with the pictures in frames. He was a great guy with awesome personality, our friends and family thought he was close family friend because he was talking to everybody and socializing making jokes and having a good time. Highly recommend Pastor Matthew. You won't regret hiring Matt you'll enjoy spending time with him.Jun 12, 2017Verified
He was professional, kind, do much fun, and traditional Christian Pastor. He kept in contact, and told us to keep in contact if we ever needed anything. He was also so patient and Dad-like. We wish we lived closer to him so we could soak up that Pastor goodness all the time!Oct 26, 2016Verified
Pastor Matthew is personable and offers special touches like a framed marriage license and family Bible. He arrived early, spoke with bride, groom, wedding party and parents. Spiritual ceremony that made all feel welcome.Nov 9, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I LEAVE IT UP TO THE COUPLE, AND TO GOD. NOT VERY COMPLICATED AT ALL. :-) Out of the hundreds of weddings that I have performed over the years, only 3 couples, after being married have not "donated" back to my ministry. All monies donated go directly back into the ministry. God has been so very good to me. I have the best "job", if one can call what I do a job, because it truly is A CALLING. God's Service and love should not be up for sale or left to the highest bidder. Hence, the reason I do not charge a set fee and live by faith as Christ commands us. Jesus did not say, "Come unto me, all ye that are tired and heavy laden, and I shall give you rest, if you pay me $200 first."😀😇✝️🙏💖. Many Churches and Pastors are focused solely on money and profit margin. That is not what Scripture tells us. We are to be focused on the soul and have faith in Christ that He shall supply our needs, all the while knowing that our Christian Brothers and sisters are already aware of the financial needs that arise in the world we live in. We are to be "in the world but not OF THE WORLD." MAY THE LOVE OF CHRIST, which surpasses all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in Christ, Jesus. Remember what Jesus told Thomas after his resurrection, "You believe because you have seen. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.". May your faith in Christ always sustain you, both in prosperity and adversity and give you the wisdom to always provide sustenance to poor Pastors who are doing God's work, under God's direction on and by Faith....and we are saved by faith(grace), not works, lest anyone should boast, and that's not of ourselves, but is the gift of God. May our loving Heavenly Father, through His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, by the enduring power of the Holy Spirit which resides in your hearts and minds keep you ever faithful in all that you say, think, and do until the day of His glorious return when He takes us all home to live with Him and the Saints who have gone before us in heaven. AMEN!!! (What does this Latin Scriptural phrase mean?)-Hint-Quote from ✝️Jesus✝️. "Ego sum Via, et Veritas, et Vita."
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It is so important to develop a relationship with the couple to be married. As a called and ordained servant of God, my responsibility does not end with the marriage ceremony. With the grace of God, I promote a relationship with the couple that extends beyond their marriage and into their life together as husband and wife. I am responsible for them before God and truly treasure them and their families. When working with the couple initially, I speak with them on the phone, make sure that both, the husband and wife, are Christian, and LISTEN to them and THEIR NEEDS to make their service truly tailored to their individual wants and desires. Each marriage is different because each couple is different and unique. A true Called and Ordained man of God will Always recognize this and put the needs of the couple first, above his own, as long as their needs do not detract from God or glorifying Christ, the Author of their love, during their Divine Marriage Ceremony and Service. Then as the date of their marriage draws closer, I make sure that nothing has changed and if it has, I work closely with them to make their blessed, special day, one that they will always remember and cherish....one in which God is present and blesses them as they begin their lives together as husband and wife.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 4 years of undergraduate work, 4 years of seminary, 3 degrees, and the Love of Christ...which surpasses all understanding and keeps our hearts and minds in Christ, Jesus. I accepted Christ when I was 13 and have been doing His work ever since.
