I am the Lead Pastor of Legacy Church, a nondenominational Christian church outside of Charlottesville. My craft is redeeming the lost art of storytelling, especially the story of grace found in the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I love how each wedding ceremony reflects the covenant love portrayed by Jesus at the Marriage Supper of the True Bridegroom and His Bride (Revelation 19).
I graduated from Liberty University with a Master of Divinity, and currently I'm pursuing a Ph.D. at Regent University's School of Business and Leadership. As an ordained Reverend in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I officiate both contemporary and traditional Christian services.
I believe Charlottesville is a wonderful community to celebrate your wedding. I've officiated weddings at many venues around our community, including Veritas Winery, Trump Winery, and UVA's Darden School of Business. I can provide preliminary premarital counseling if couples don’t have some type of counseling with their local church. (I highly recommend each couple has premarital counseling from their pastor or another godly couple they respect!)
The church I pastor has many young couples who ask me to perform their weddings, so each year I can only officiate a few weddings from those outside our church. If you're interested, please inquire soon. We can set up a brief meeting (online or a local coffeeshop) to know each other better and determine if we’re a good fit. I look forward to officiating your special day!
