Some Reviews of This Wedding Ministry From the Past
WE TRULY APPRECIATE AND THANK YOU FOR PERFORMING OUR WEDDING CEREMONY ON JUNE 7, 2003. YOU REALLY CAME THOUGH AT SHORT NOTICE AND DID A GREAT JOB. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING. MR. & MRS. BEKAYE KOUYATE FROM READING, PA
Thank you so much for the beautiful presentation and conductance of our ceremony. You made the words leap into life from the page. Ann loved every moment of it and I was so pleased that everything came together on the day! God really did smile on us. Mr. and Mrs. Joshua and Ann Eckler,
We were beyond pleased with our experience with Reverend Kirk, from start to finish. His organization, communication, delivery, and thoughtfulness far exceeded our expectations. All questions were answered promptly and thoroughly throughout the planning process. We went to other clergy in the area that we researched but it was through a mutual friend that we had found him; our experience was worth every penny. The ceremony was personal and sentimental. We laughed and I cried (and cried and cried), exactly how we pictured it. Our guests continue to rave about the ceremony and we couldn’t agree more. One guest said if she had known her and her husband could have had a ceremony like ours, they would have forgone the traditional church wedding. She is writing Bishop Alban Kirk’s name down for future vow renewals. We cannot thank Bishop Alban Kirk enough for making our day absolutely flawless, beautiful, and perfect! Mr. and Mrs. Adam and Sarah Cronin
When we did a renewal of our wedding vows, Reverend Kirk did an awesome job, he even did better and made the ceremony more personal than the justice of the peace that we used when we first had gotten married. Jessica and Joshua Modzel
Thank you very much for the role you played in our special day. We really appreciated your calm, kind, professional and engaging manner - and my parents did, too. They mentioned how much they liked you and the intimacy of our wedding. Thank you for making our ceremony so incredible. We are so happy it all worked out the way we had anticipated. Thanks for making it happen! Mrs.Lecey Tembi
Our family can not stop talking about our ceremony that Reverend Kirk did for us, he even brought in another bishop to assist him in the ceremony, this does not happen in the mainstream denominations at all. Kimberly and Eric Brink

Bishop Kirk was absolutely amazing! Reverend KirkKirk and Reverend Rodney made us feel so at ease and walked us through all the steps to a successful ceremony and wedding while giving us the sacraments of holy matrimony.
