About Rev. Jim Lytle

Congratulations on your engagement! I am an ordained, nondenominational pastor in the Charlotte area who has been performing weddings for over fifteen years. I enjoy helping couples craft a ceremony that uniquely represents them...it can be a short, simple ceremony or one with many special elements. I am passionate about the spiritual dimension of marriage and strive to honor that in the wedding ceremony. I believe that in honoring the tradition and spiritual aspect of marriage, your ceremony will be one you and your guests will find both meaningful and memorable. I am also happy to design and officiate a secular ceremony for those couples wanting a non religious ceremony!

I am a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, and have served in various ministry roles in New York state and in Charlotte, North Carolina. My resume includes marriage preparation, family ministry, and performing wedding and renewing of vows ceremonies, funerals, and baby dedications.

    Rev. Jim Lytle is a true professional. After a terrible experience with another pastor, meeting Jim was a breath of fresh air. He was caring and listened to our wants and needs. We had a few special circumstances that were frowned upon by the previous pastor, but Jim was more than understanding and accommodating. All of our guests commented on how great our service was and how personal Jim is. Jim is truly the best and I couldn't give him a higher recommendation.

    Rev. Jim Lytle's reply:

    So nice to hear this. I appreciate you two! After leaving a church position to do the "freelance, independent" wedding pastor life (or officiant role) I realize how much easier it is to craft ceremonies that are, as you described above AND it is encouraging to me that I'm going in the right direction. I get to say yes and accommodate couples much less "restrictively" than in a formal church position. Thank You!

    I love working on weddings with Jim Lytle! He shares one of my passions- telling the stories. I believe that a wedding reception is mostly about people wanting to be a part of a couple's story- it is why they are there. Jim knows this, and weaves story into each and every wedding ceremony.y. It is customized, personalized, and listening to it is always fun. Jim is a great speaker. He does a great job on the most important part of the day!
