About Mountain Valley Ministries

Mountain Valley Ministries is a wedding officiant and chaplaincy for couples marrying in the greater Fresno and Sacramento, California, areas. This group was founded in 2013 and has grown to officiate many weddings over the years. The three ministers serve couples in the greater Fresno and Sacramento, California areas including Yosemite National Park.

Experience
Reverends Jack and Gail Climer are both ordained non-denominational Protestant ministers. They work with Reverend Terry Melau to officiate weddings and work with couples throughout the area. Mountain Valley Ministries was founded as a peer counseling group for United State veterans and their families. Their services are funded by the wedding officiating they do, which ensures that they take every wedding seriously. The team has a specialty in fusion weddings that blend different cultures or beliefs.

Services Offered
The reverends at Mountain Valley Ministries are licensed to perform weddings in the state of California. They officiate weddings and help couples with the paperwork, such as processing wedding licenses and filing with the appropriate county. Mountain Valley Ministries officiates all types of ceremonies, including single-religion, interfaith, and non-religious celebrations. They also perform civil unions and vow renewals, and the reverends can attend a couple’s ceremony rehearsal if needed. Reverends Climer and Reverend Melau all allow couples to write and read their own vows, and couples may also include any personal traditions they wish, such as the lighting of the unity candle, the pouring of sand, or anything else. A typical ceremony by these officiants takes less than 30 minutes. They have worked with couples of many faiths, from Catholic to Buddhist to Hindu, including agnostic and non-denominational couples, as well as those who are:

  • Anglican
  • Baptist
  • Earth-based
  • Episcopalian
  • Evangelical
  • Lutheran
  • Methodist
  • Orthodox Christian
  • Pagan
  • Presbyterian
  • Quaker
