Are you passionate about Christian marriage and dream of officiating weddings? Whether you’ve been asked to lead a ceremony or feel a calling to this sacred role, the need for Wedding Officiants has never been greater!

Joining the Christian Leaders Alliance as a Christian wedding officiant empowers you to confidently officiate weddings while also engaging in meaningful marriage ministry.

As a Christian wedding officiant, you’ll champion the biblical view of marriage and help couples embark on their journey together with a strong foundation. Regardless of your Christian background—whether Catholic, Anglican, Pentecostal, or Baptist—what unites us is our belief in marriage as:

  • A divine institution established by God from the beginning
  • A lifelong commitment between a man and a woman
  • A sacred bond of love, fidelity, and purpose ordained by God
  • A place of hot monogamy
  • A place where families are nurtured in faith

Our Christian Marriage Officiant program welcomes believers from all denominations to answer the call to promote Christian marriage and officiate weddings.

But what exactly does officiating weddings entail?

As a Christian Officiant, you not only lead the ceremony with Christian elements but also serve as the legal representative, ensuring the marriage is recognized by the state. This means verifying the couple’s willingness to marry and witnessing their vows, sealing the covenant with your signature.

In addition to conducting ceremonies, Christian Officiants play a pivotal role in supporting couples throughout their wedding journey. From planning the ceremony to providing marriage counseling and delivering heartfelt messages, you’ll guide couples as they enter this new chapter of their lives.

Recognizing the importance of training and certification, the Christian Leaders Alliance offers free ministry training through the Christian Leaders Institute. Led by Rev. Henry Reyenga, this comprehensive program equips you with the skills and knowledge needed to excel as a wedding officiant. You will learn the essential teaching of Reyenga’s book ‘Officiate Weddings’.
