REQUEST A PASTOR

 

Here are a few things you should know if you’d like one of our pastors to perform your wedding ceremony (and they all do a great wedding): 

  • When possible, we request a minimum of four months’ notice.
  • You must both attend The Marriage Project class as your pre-marital counseling.
  • Couples who go through The Marriage Project are eligible for a discount of around $60 off the cost of a Tennessee marriage license. We’re happy to provide the necessary documentation whenever you need it. While this discount is an added perk, please know that our sole purpose in providing The Marriage Project is to help couples start their marriage in a God-honoring and healthy way. If for any reason the class is not completed, we’re not obligated to approve the discount.
  • Our pastors are not wedding planners or coordinators… trust us.
  • Your marriage ceremony must be God-honoring, including choice of music and dress.
  • Our pastors reserve the option to decline attendance to the wedding rehearsal and/or rehearsal dinner.
  • At any point leading up to your wedding, Highpoint pastors reserve the right to not officiate your ceremony if they determine you are not ready for marriage at that time.
  • It is customary for a pastor to receive an honorarium/payment for their services performing your wedding. When you request a pastor, you will be notified of the amount that pastor requests for officiating a wedding, generaly between $250-$500.
  • If your wedding takes place out of town, you are responsible for the pastor’s travel expenses, lodging (if needed), and a $30 per diem for meals. The pastor reserves the right to make his own travel arrangements.
  • In the unlikely event that your pastor cannot perform your wedding ceremony due to sickness, family emergency, etc., we will work with you to secure another pastor.

 

If you agree to the above terms and would like to invite one of our pastors to perform your wedding ceremony, please submit a request and we’ll be in touch. If you have any further questions, please let us know.
