    Powerful and professional wedding officiant

    We were extremely happy with our choice to go with Derek Dube as our wedding officiant. He was helpful and friendly throughout the preparation process, arrived on time, looking sharp, for the ceremony, and provided many helpful last-minute tips and suggestions for the ceremony logistics based on his experience. The ceremony itself was beautiful and seamless. We definitely made the right decision by choosing Derek/World of Wisdom.

    Rachel and Alex, what can I say? Your ceremony was simply beautiful and I enjoyed my time working with both of you to co-create the perfect wedding day for you and your guests. Speaking with some of your family members and close friends really gave me a great understanding of how much they love and support you and the love and respect that you have for each other. Thank you for allowing me to share in your celebration.

    Derek is Wonderful

    Derek was absolutely unbelievable to work with from the beginning through our wedding day, and even after. Right from the beginning, Derek made a huge effort to get to know us, and to craft our wedding ceremony around the things that were most important to us. He was incredibly professional, and he performed our ceremony in a way that displayed its beauty and thoughtfulness perfectly. We could not recommend Derek more!

    Derek was wonderful!

    Derek was absolutely wonderful to work with! He provided all the necessary materials for us to create our perfect ceremony and was patient when I took forever to get back to him. The rehearsal wouldn't have went as smoothly as it did if Derek wasn't there to help. I got many compliments on how friendly and professional Derek was from many family members. I highly recommend him to any future couples!

    Little rain couldn't stop us!

    We were very happy with our choice to go with Derek/World of Ministry for our officiant for our 2020 wedding. It was quite a year planning and he was patience with us and our last minute planning. He provided some great examples of ceremonies and it allowed us to build our own to what we wanted. He was very professional in planning and presentation and we were pleased how it all turned out (even with some last minute rain on our ceremony day). Thank you for your help Derek and it was a pleasure to have you be part of our special day!

I am looking forward to all the wonderful experiences that will enhance your lives for many years to come.

    Derek helped us create the most perfect micro wedding!

    Derek was a pleasure to work with! He was professional and provided us with plenty of resources to help us create a ceremony unique to us, while also keeping the traditional elements of a wedding ceremony that we valued. He was flexible with all the changes that the pandemic forced on us and respectful of our health and safety throughout the event. We had the most perfect micro wedding! If you are looking for a minister, look no further!

    The Perfect Wedding Day

    Working with Derek was everything you would hope for when planning your wedding. He was kind, responsive, knowledgable, flexible, and extremely personable. Aside from all that, he's simply a great guy that you want to have at your wedding. Derek stayed for dinner and our guests could not stop talking about how kind he was throughout the night and what a positive addition to our wedding he was. More specifically, he sat with my family and took genuine interest learning more about our story. Derek was the officiant for not only our wedding, but also for my brother in law. I would not recommend anyone other than Derek to help guide you in your wedding planning process and provide genuine input with your interests in the forefront of his mind. Book him now. you will not regret it!

By the way, the venue, River Park, is simply beautiful and I will reccomend it to couple's in the future. I look forward to many, many years of your friendship and I am excited to see all the neat adventures your path brings your way. Much Love and Blessings.

    Derek was wonderful to work with! We were a "COVID couple" so we didn't have the typical big wedding that we planned; however Derek made sure our small, intimate family wedding ceremony was perfect.

    Outstanding Officiant

    We were honored to have Derek be the officiant at our wedding. We ended up booking Derek last minute since we lost our original officiant due to covid-19. He was super flexible and attentive with all emails and phone communication through the whole process. He was able to accommodate everything we wanted to include in our wedding ceremony. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and we are very happy that he could be a part of our big day. Thank you for coming to our rescue and giving us such an amazing wedding ceremony that we will never forget.

    My husband and I couldn’t have been more happy to have had Derek officiate our wedding. From when we first met with him to the day of the ceremony (and all the emails in between) he was organized, patient and kind. The ceremony he helped us put together was beautiful and personalized just for us. The day of the wedding, he unexpectedly came to my bridal room and thanked us for letting him be a part of our big day. He continued to wish us many years of happiness. You could tell that this wasn’t just a job for him, he genuinely enjoys what he does. We are very thankful to have asked him to be our officiant. Thank you again Derek!

    Most caring officiant EVER

    Derek Dube is the kindest, most caring officiant around. He was incredibly professional and reliable. Always responding to my questions in a timely manner. He took charge of the rehearsal and made everything run smoothly and with great time. My ceremony was perfect and he truly made our "I do's" something unforgettable. In the words of my husband "he's truly a great guy". I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone getting married.

And boy did your family share beautiful words regarding your love for each other, great communication and how compassionate you are toward each other. You were a joy to work with. Many blessings on this new chapter in your lives.

    Best officiant choice you could make!

    I am so thankful that we chose Derek as our officiant! He made the whole process so easy and the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Derek was a pleasure to be around and was great with our families and wedding party as well. He created a ceremony we will remember with love forever. You’ll be so glad you chose him too!

    Hello Vincent and Katherine, you are correct when you said fun! Fun describes everything about your ceremony, including our time spent creating your ceremony, certainly the rehearsal, the wedding and of course the reception celebration afterward. I am so glad to have met you and I enjoyed our time together. The wine box ceremony was perfect and the venue that you chose was just as intimate as your ceremony. Many blessings to both of you as you journey through life filled with Joy, Compassion and Love.
