Wedding Use Policy

The following things are required in order for a Renew Communities pastor to perform a wedding:

  1. Both the bride and groom must have a personal commitment to Jesus Christ. If a bride or groom are not committed to Jesus before the wedding application would be considered the couple must meet with the pastor and discuss what possibilities might exist. 

  2. The bride and groom must go through pre-marital counseling and meet any special requirements of the counselor. This will include the Prepare/Enrich Pre-Marital Inventory ($35 to be paid online when you complete the assessment) as well as suggested readings and at least three and as many as six sessions. Counseling is available through Renew Communities at the cost of $100 (check made payable to the one doing counseling). You are welcome to use another counselor as long as they are willing to connect with the Renew Communities pastor before and after the counseling has taken place.

  3.  A fee of $175 should be paid to the pastor to perform the wedding ceremony.  Checks should be made out directly to the pastor, not to Renew Communities.

  4. If musicians or technical assistance is provided through the arts department of Renew Communities compensation is required. Each Tech person should be compensated at $75 per person with a check made out directly in their name. Worship/Musicians should be compensated as well. A suggested amount would be between $75 - $100 depending on what you have agreed with them to do during your ceremony, with a check in their name.

 Additional information:

We ask that you pay all travel expenses for the pastor who performs your ceremony if the wedding is held more than 30 miles away from the pastor’s home residence (i.e. food, gas and overnight lodging if necessary).
