My name is David Anderson.

If you found this page, you most likely saw the invitation at the back of my book, Before God and These Witnesses, or you received a mailing from us. Thank you for wanting to continue the journey. I am a local pastor looking for other pastors who wish to grow their churches through weddings.

Weddings are a great way to grow your church, reach your community, and change the culture while you are at it.

The church is shrinking, and marriage is in trouble. As I shared in the book, we want you to do something that can affect both.

The Services

We Offer Pastors & Churches These Three Services

At the heart of this, my goal is evangelism. I want to see pastors as the drivers in the wedding industry. To provide strong premarital counseling, present the gospel, build relationships with them, and connect these couples to churches. To help churches reach this goal, we offer three services.

Conference & Keynote Speaking

David would love to speak at your conference, church, or denominational event. Whether you need a keynote or multi-session event for couples, he can lead marriage weekends, Valentine's Day events, engaged couple events, or date night events. He has enough crazy stories from past weddings to fill an entire comedy routine.

David focuses on an engaged couple's journey through the three stages of a relationship (dating, engagement, and marriage). There is a difference between preparing for marriage and getting ready for a wedding. All relationships need balance—a plan for nurturing a relationship and a strategy for conflict resolution. He walks couples through the “Date Challenge” for relationship building and the “Business Meeting” for solving problems.

Premarital Counseling

The truth for every couple is premarital counseling is way more fun than marriage counseling. Just one session of premarital counseling can reduce the risk of divorce. We also know pastors (especially bi-vocational pastors) have limited time. If pastors need to outsource their premarital counseling, we can do it virtually.

This service is ideal for pastors who don’t have time or training to do premarital counseling but still want to perform the wedding. This service is at no cost to the pastor or the church. We will charge the couple directly.

Join the Wedding Chaplain Team

Do you have a personal evangelism plan or discipline? Would you like to add another income stream? Would you like to get in front of the very demographic you are trying to build at your church?

If so, we would invite you to become a wedding chaplain. We will train and resource you. We will take care of all your advertising and send you leads. It’s an ideal system for the small church pastor.

Who Are We Looking For?

We are looking for ministers interested in officiating at least one wedding a month or more. In addition, we need ministers who would be interested in leading couples in a virtual premarital counseling process. Some couples have a minister performing their wedding but seek premarital counseling from another source.

For $299, we will send you, on average, at least two leads a month. You can take as many leads as you wish, but at minimum, we ask that you perform at least ten ceremonies in a year.

The Mission

What Is Our Goal?

At the heart of this, my goal is evangelism. I want to see pastors as the drivers in the wedding industry. To provide strong premarital counseling, present the gospel, build relationships with them, and connect these couples to churches.

Officiating twelve weddings a year will not make you rich, but you will add $6,000- $8,000 a year to supplement your income and put the very couples you are trying to reach right in front of you. If the couple finds faith or joins your church, there is no price to put on it.

Who is a Fit?

We seek ordained ministers with a Bible College or Seminary degree currently on staff at a local church. We will consider various chaplain and other ministry positions, but the focus is to have a clear path to connect couples to a local congregation. We are not looking for officiants who want to just show up and perform a wedding. An application process and vetting are required.
