    Wonderful counselor, definitely the voice you want to marry you!

    Working with Rev Powell was beneficial in helping us firm up the foundation we had been building in our relationship prior to taking the next step of marriage. We were able to identify subjects we hadn't thought about in the 5 years of dating and discuss more solid plans for our future family. Rev Powell was flexible with our wedding changes due to COVID, great with adjusting to our desires for our ceremony, and wonderfully engaging yet brief on the day of the wedding!

    What a blessing!

    Rev. Powell's ministry for counseling and marrying couples in the DC, MD, and VA area is truly anointed!!! I found his services online just two months before my wedding. Yet, he was more than accommodating to the plans we had already set in place for our nuptials. He only insisted that my fiance' and I get premarital counseling before performing our ceremony - which we both only agreed to reluctantly. Now, we can't thank him enough for that gesture of love!!! His sessions were all divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit - such that he led us each time in prayer and then into a scripture-based dialogue that touched on all of the things we were both either feeling or experiencing but unable to talk about with each other. We could also feel the presence of the Lord so heavily in his home office each and every time we met with him. In fact ... by the time we came to the end of our premarital counseling, Rev. Powell had to reassure us both that if we needed him after we were married that he would have an open door for us. LOL... And on the day of my wedding, he arrived promptly beautifully robed and he carried out my entire ceremony graciously and elegantly. What a blessing the entire day was because of the favor on his ministry - I can't recommend him enough for your wedding!!!

    What we needed

    First I want to give advice to any couple that plan on embarking on this journey called marriage to seek pre-martial counseling even if it’s not required by your church or officiant. Rev. Powell was truly a blessing to my now Husband and I. He really took the time to explain what love really means through the eyes of our Creator and not based on the vanity and surface love you see in movies and In society today. We truly couldn't have asked for a better officiant. After each session we felt encouraged, as well as challenged, and it reaffirmed why we were right for each other, but at the same time what work we needed to do to keep our relationship on solid ground. We are very thankful to God for putting Rev. Powell in our path. And we know that even after the Ceremony we have someone to go to when we need help through this journey.
