Request an Officiant
Congratulations on your engagement! We are so excited for both of you as you begin the journey of marriage together. Thank you for considering MWC for your officiant needs. Marriage truly is a wonderful gift from God, and we are honored to be part of your big day. To get started, simply fill out the form below and an MWC staff member will reach out to you.
The following policies and honorariums are set by the Board of Elders at MWC Church. Our desire is never to allow financial constraints to keep any couple from walking through biblical marriage and receiving trust-worthy premarital coaching. If you find that finances are an issue and would like to discuss other arrangements, please specify in the request form above.
Hiring an MWC minister includes a $250 honorarium. The cost breakdown is as follows. When hiring an MWC minister to officiate a wedding, there is a $50 booking fee. This reserves your date on the minister’s calendar and also helps cover any local travelling expenses to your wedding and rehearsal. There is a $50 ceremony fee, which includes officiating the wedding ceremony, the handling of the legal marriage license, and provides a face-to-face meeting with the couple to assist in the process of planning the entire ceremony. Finally, because we are convinced that God desires us to spend more time preparing for a life-long marriage than we do planning a one-day ceremony, we strongly encourage pre-marital coaching. This is a $150 pre-marital coaching investment which includes a minimum of four 90 minute sessions. These sessions will formally lead you through a clinically tested and certified Marriage Mentoring Assessment, where you will discuss biblical principles and be encouraged to have pertinent conversations with your future spouse. Should the couple choose to go through pre-marital coaching, the minister will provide all of the resources, which are yours to keep. We look forward to serving you on your special day.
