Practical, Powerful, Memorable
We’re so thankful to have Reverend Powell join us together in holy matrimony. We had a great experience in counseling that was entirely based on God’s way. His advice was very professional yet practical with great examples of testimonies to remember . And to always put God first in our marriage.Sent on 06/14/2019

Wonderful & Invaluable Experience!
We couldn't have made a better choice of officiant for our May Wedding! Reverend Powell was sincere and professional from the initial consultation, throughout pre-marital counseling, and during the ceremony. We could tell he truly cared about providing us with the tools for a successful, lasting marriage under God.Sent on 05/23/2019
His impactful words during the ceremony resonated with us and our guests. Our families were extremely impressed with his service and I would definitely recommend him to any couples looking for a counselor and officiant.

We booked Rev Powell, after finding him on here. He met with us right after contacting him--finding out, he lived down the street from us. He was kind, and professional throughout the whole process. Rev. Powell, takes his ministry serious and wants to ensure he is officiating weddings according to God's will. He offers pre-marital counseling, and wants to ensure couples are equipped and prepared for marriage. Great experience!Sent on 05/10/2019
