- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My fee of $350 includes all costs: initial meeting, Pre-Marriage Counseling of 5 sessions, Prepare-Enrich Pre-Marriage Online Assessment an Review, Planning Your Personalized Wedding Service, Conducting your Wedding Rehearsal, Officiating your Wedding. No travel additions! No addition for completing, signing and mailing in the Marriage License! Your only additional cost: the Pre-Marriage Book ("Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts" and workbooks for groom and bride, about $40). This will be your most valuable investment in your Wedding and Marriage!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Following Thumbtack contact, I arrange by e-mail or telephone with the couple for a mutually convenient initial meeting to get acquainted, learn your wedding and marriage hopes and dreams, and mutually determine if we would be a good team to work together. Soon after that I enroll you in the 5-session group Pre-Marriage Counseling if you desire it. I also enroll you in the on-line Prepare-Enrich Pre-Marriage Assessment; when it is completed by both of you my wife and I (we are both certified facilitators) review the results with you privately. Then we schedule a time to meet to plan your personalized Wedding Service. Then comes your Rehearsal and special Day!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I earned the Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA, in June 1963. In April, 1964, I was ordained an American Baptist Pastor. I have taken graduate studies at the University of Iowa, three theological seminaries, and several training courses, including Pre-Marriage and Marriage Counseling, Wedding Planning, and others. I have served as solo or senior Pastor of 7 churches in IA, SD, MI, DC, and as Executive Director of Churches United of the Quad Cities (Iowa-Illinois), in which I worked with 130 churches representing 25 denominations. I am well trained in the wedding and marriage traditions and teachings of virtually every Christian church and can help any couple adapt their wedding to their shared backgrounds.
