Pastor Jay was wonderful to work with and we were so delighted to have him as an officiant at our wedding. From day one when we met with Pastor Jay my husband and I felt connected which I feel is important. We participated in coaching sessions before the big day and it was great. We spent time evaluating the meaning of marriage and reviewing different traits about each other that we value. Pastor Jay worked as a guide for us into finding the deeper meaning of what marriage is all about. The ceremony was so lovely and we received so many compliments from family and friends on how beautiful everything was.Sent on 10/11/2018
For our ceremony we decided to have two wedding traditions which were the unity candles and a wine box. Pastor Jay explained them perfectly to our guests during the ceremony and I feel this made everyone feel so much more connected to us. Pastor Jay did a fantastic job and we are so happy we had him be a part of such a special day for us. Everything was perfect!
Thank you so much Pastor Jay!

Okay, I know Jay values honesty. Be ready for a lengthy review, because I have a lot to say. My only regret is this review box has a character limit.Sent on 01/16/2018
I passed over Jay at first. Why? Because I am a little jaded and assumed the worst. He has perfect reviews from dozens of people, podcasts, an upcoming book. I was afraid he was one of those guys you see on TV healing miracles with paid testimonials and asking for donations.
I was completely, utterly, 100% wrong. He has outstanding reviews because he truly deserves them.
I immediately felt like this guy was an old friend. I’m more spiritual than religious, but Jay accepted me without hesitation. He took his time talking to us, gave premarital counseling sessions, and must have taken extensive notes because the wedding was performed like we had been friends for years. It was well-spoken with bits and pieces of info we had shared in our previous discussions.
Later, we started his marriage coaching program. This program is meant to help couples be prepared to face life together, for better and the inevitable worse. He wrangles our separate thoughts into cohesive discussions. He shares his own previous trials in life and marriage. He never watches the clock or rushes through the session. He genuinely wants to help and overcome the “Men are From Mars and Women are From Venus” conundrum. His price is very reasonable and the service is priceless. I truly think if we didn’t live in a world where you can’t survive without money, he’d do it for free.
This is a guy that we would hang out with, have dinner with, invite over to a BBQ. He’s a family man, a father, a husband, a friend, a man of God, and many more.
If every married couple, newlywed or married for 20 years, worked with him or someone else his zeal, the divorce rate would be slashed in half or more.
His podcasts are awesome, too, by the way. Whether you're married or not, go listen!
