We found John on Thumbtack after an unsatisfactory experience with another officiant during the planning stages for our wedding. We feel we were extremely lucky to have found him and we could not have been more pleased with his genuineness and the professional level of service he provided. He was generous with his time talking us through ceremony ideas and traveled up to the Raleigh area from LaGrange where he's based for both our rehersal and again for the ceremony. We felt we were in good hands with him performing our ceremony and never had to worry. All in all a wonderful experience. Shannon and BryanOct 27, 2018Verified
I loved being able to witness one of John's weddings. His message to the couple, as well as all that were there and listening was heart felt as well as scripture based. Anyone witnessing him officiating the ceremony would be able to tell that it was evident John meant every word he said. I would recommend him to any couple looking for a pastor to officiate.Oct 7, 2018
John was great to work with! We did all of our planning through email and phone conversations. Since it was a very small wedding, we didn't meet until the actual ceremony. So even without meeting and practice, everything went perfectly and he put together a beautiful ceremony for us. He was personable and professional, and the guests commented on how well he wove bible verses, vows, and a few anecdotes together.Oct 8, 2019Verified
Rev. John was amazing to work with. He not only accommodated our unique request, but he went above and beyond. His personal touches are appreciated beyond words. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to officiate for us, not a better experience. Do not hesitate to contact Rev. John. We were blessed to find him!May 28, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My standard fee is $300.00 if the ceremony is within an hour and a half drive and I am am not required at the rehearsal. If I am required to attend the rehearsal an additional charge of $100 or $200 is requested depending on the distance.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We will get to know each other through personal interaction, phone calls, or video chats. I do encourage premarital counciling, which I offer, but it is not a requirement. I do stress that communication between us is a must so I can help provide your ideal ceremony.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from Campbell University Divinity School with a Master of Divinity Degree.
