We are new to WeddingWire, but you can find Clergy 211 reviews and client testimonials here: http://www.clergy211.org/testimonials.html
Founded on the principles of equality, open-mindedness, and unwavering acceptance, Clergy 211 is a network of progressive ministers that offers support to all people, including those who are in need of nonjudgmental, nonsectarian, and, in some cases, non-religious life-event ceremonies and services.
Despite numerous published reports, it is not widely known that an overwhelming number of ministers and churches will deny services to various minority groups - those who are labeled different because they do not believe, live, or love as the ministers and churches instruct - or will not officiate non-members' life-event services unless certain conditions are met. Stories abound of families being refused services because it was discovered that the recipient was a member of the LGBT community, or a Christian memorial ceremony was performed for someone who was an Atheist.
Our clergy come from many persuasions and perspectives and are as diverse as the world we live in today. Some have been former ministers in a mainline denomination, but who may have retired, shifted in their beliefs, or moved away from the tenets of a particular denomination or group. What our ministers have in common is the understanding that all people deserve the best service and ministerial presence and the calling to serve individuals and families where they are, never imposing a particular theology, philosophy, or ideology.
The mission of Clergy 211 is to help to reinvigorate people's sense of acceptance through the progressive and inclusive services and to do this in a way appropriate and considerate of the multi-national, multi-religious and nonreligious, diverse community of the 21st century.

We feel so lucky to have had Reverend Randy Lewis (of Clergy211) be our officiant. From the beginning he was organized, helpful and such a joy to be around. We had some general ideas of what we wanted but were pretty clueless overall actually and Randy walked us through the steps, offered ideas, and the material he sent us to look through was invaluable. We had emails, phone calls and a few f2f meetings and he was always so organized and reminded us of things we would forget. On the rehearsal day he was on time, and looked so sharp in his suit. He helped everyone know where to stand and what the process would be for the following day. On the wedding day itself we were so nervous. He was truly charming, eloquent, funny and emotional. He helped make our ceremony all the more beautiful and we are so happy we hired him. He's the best!Sent on 04/10/2017

Rev Randy was great! We had no idea and no plans. He led us through the process and helped us turn a quick wedding into a memorable life event. The ability to reserve, communicate and pay online is great for a busy couple. I would highly recommend Clergy 211 and Rev Randy.Sent on 03/15/2016

Rev. Randy Lewis was awesome! He put a lot of thought and enthusiasm into putting together our ceremony. He paid attention to detail which we both appreciated and was very flexible in terms of accommodation of our ideas and thoughts. It was a pleasure having him officiate our ceremony.Sent on 03/27/2016
