I am a non-judgmental, friendly Christian minister that specializes in helping couples that don't belong to a congregation, and may be uncomfortable with the stringent regulations and protocols involved with traditional organized religion. I welcome interfaith marriages, and second marriages as well as blended families. My pricing structure is affordable, and in some cases, payment plans are available for couples on a tight budget.
I conduct weddings throughout the Midwest from formal gatherings to very casual ones, even barefoot beach weddings on the shores of Lake Michigan.
My wife, Stephanie & I live in Elkhart, IN. I was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1963. After serving as a missionary priest for 15 years in the rural south in the U.S., I resigned the active clerical priesthood to become a married priest in 1977. I was certified to perform civil marriages in 2002. I also perform baptisms, blessings, anointings of the sick, and funerals for those requesting these sacramental ministry services.
