Paster Dan was unable to do our wedding due to health problems. His son Ben officiated our wedding, which was an elopement. Ben made our ceremony so beautiful and personal. Thank you both for making our life together full of hope and love.

Unfortunately didn’t use Pastor Dan for our wedding. But we would recommend him to others. He was very sincere & took pride in his work.

Pastor Dan made our wedding ceremony special and personal to us as a couple. He was very easy to work with, accommodating, and very responsive to text, phone, and email. He was a wonderful addition to our special day. We were truly blessed to have him conduct our ceremony. Thank you Pastor Dan.

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

    My rate is $95 an hour for counseling. My rate for weddings is $325. Some travel to see me, however I will travel to make it more convenient for my clients. If I drive beyond 15 miles I receive $0.50 per mile.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will typically first speak on the phone to get an idea whether it would be a good match. I then will meet at a neutral place like a Starbucks or a Barnes & Noble. For premarital counseling I usually meet in our home.

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

    My degree is in theology but I also have 540 hours of clinical pastoral education(CPE), 50 hours of training for the Lifeskills program, and postgraduate classes pertaining to pastoring and counseling.
