My name is Tim. I am an Ordained Minister with standing in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and while working in a hospital was a Board Certified Chaplain for twenty-seven years.
I have been married for almost 38 years to my wife Jan, who often accompanies me to larger weddings to assist as a ceremony coordinator. I have three adult children: Nathan, Melissa and Chris.
I have been officiating weddings since my ordination in 1980, the total being over 2000. The settings for couples I have married range from being dressed in jeans and standing next to the perennial garden in my backyard, to a large and formal wedding with me wearing a clerical robe and the couple having eight attendants on each side, plus flower girls, ring bearers and even a trumpet entry, and one very large wedding with the bride in her traditional dress and having ten attendants while the groom had fourteen,
When possible, I like to meet with couples before they make a decision on who they will hire as an officiant. When distance prevents a face to face meeting, I have found that Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts work very well for us to get to know each other. In the last year I have been privileged to celebrate weddings here in Kansas City with couples who reside in Perth, Australia, Bangkok, Thailand, and multiple cities throughout the United States.
My greatest joy is to help each couple to create a special and unique wedding just for them. I would be delighted to do the same for you.
