About me:      

So, why do I do weddings; simply because I love to.  I perform marriage ceremonies because there is nothing I enjoy more than solemnizing the vows of a marriage, I have a "real job" that puts bread on the table, but I like doing this and I consider it a privilege to officiate weddings, it's really quite an honor to perform as the officiant of a wedding service. Marriage was and is a divine plan by our creator to make our lives much happier than we ever could be by ourselves. That being said, I believe if you shop around you will find my fees very reasonable. If you can't afford my fee, just tell me; we can work something out.

My credentials are as follows; I have earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education with a minor in Psychology and a Master's in Biblical Counseling.  I have been an ordained minister since graduating from Bible College and I have led a variety of religious programs and ceremonies over the past 30 years such as ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching bible classes, seeing to the needs of Christian missionaries world wide and performing pre-marital and marital counseling.

I have been happily married now for over 37 years. My wife Bernadette and I have four children and nine grand children.

I believe that good family values are the foundation of a good community and a great nation and although I don't preach to those that are seeking a wedding officiant, I do encourage everyone to become involved in a Christian church, especially those couples that intend to raise children.

Besides being a minister, I have had a job in the secular world for most of my adult life. I have worked for the US government in a number of positions and for a several agencies, generally in a technical capacity such as data systems, cryptographic systems and currently work in the management and oversight of air traffic control systems. If by chance you work at Robins Air Base and would like to be married in the chapel there, I have performed many services there in the past.

Should you choose me, or another celebrant, I hope that you will have many, many years together full of health and happiness. Remember the key to a good marriage; it's not marrying the right partner, it's being the right partner. If the both of you give 100% and expect 50%, you will seldom be disappointed.

Warm Regards,

Rev. Rick
