  • We can't begin to express how wonderful Rev. Derek was helping us with our wedding day ceremony from start to finish. From our pre-marital "education" to helping us with writing our ceremony vows and walking us through the steps. He was so easy to talk to, responsive and there for us every step of the way. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and our favorite part of our wedding! We can't recommend him enough. Thank you Reverend Derek!
