    Derek was amazing. We did the spiritual enrichment class which has really helped in our marriage and relationship, something that was absolutely worth doing.
    He was always very flexible with scheduling and always available. When it came to our ceremony he worked to put together a very memorable experience. Derek is wonderful, so happy we found him!

    Reilly and Nick, what can I say? I am so glad the two of you participated in my Relationship Enhancement Counseling Classes. Although they are not required, I think they are so helpful and powerful for two people in Love and planning to spend the rest of their lives together. I had so much fun going through the process with both of you that it was second only to your Beautiful Ceremony! I hope the information and tools that you learned from the classes built a strong foundation and adds to the excitement and Joy of your Married Life together. Lots of Love, Laughter and Joy to you both as your Journey together begins!

    Derek was the only officiant we met with, and we knew we wanted to hire him before the meeting was over. He was very flexible with our ceremony wording. He sent us several different ceremonies and let us choose and edit them as we wanted. He was also really patient when it took us longer than expected to get our wording back to him - a major plus when we were stressing about every other aspect of the wedding! The ceremony was one of our favorite parts of our wedding day!

    Thank you and please understand that it does not matter how long it takes to get the ceremony just the way you want it. It is your day and your ceremony, I am honored to change it as many times as necessary until it is perfect and just how you envisioned it would be. It was my pleasure to work with both of you.

    Joy, Peace and Love to you for many, many years of happy marriage!

    Debbie and I were blessed to have been referred to Derek to officiate our wedding. The ceremony was wonderful , Debbie and I could not be more happy; and Derek was a significant part. In the pre-planning ,Derek provided very helpful materials and options, along with his guidance, and was very mindful of our wishes and intentions for the Wedding. Derek also suggested matters that Debbie and I probably would have missed; and he was never presumptuous.Derek is also a very spiritual person which is very important for Debbie and me.

    I had the most wonderful experience Officiating at your ceremony. To have all of your children stand up in your wedding party made all the difference in this spiritual and loving day of uniting two families in marriage. I can tell that the two of you are sooo in love with each other. What a blessing it is that you have found each other and will spend the rest of your lives together in Love and Happiness.

    Reverend Derek Dube of World of Wisdom Ministry is one of the kindest, most compassionate and hardworking person we have ever met. He wasn't "an officiant" he was the kind, intelligent, genuine and caring person who brought the ceremony to life. His enthusiasm and genuine care for people flows through him. He made us feel at ease the whole time and added all of our thoughts, beliefs and contributions to our ceremony. He asked us many questions and did a custom ceremony based on who we were as people and as a couple. It is hard to put into words how amazing this person is. I was getting a little nervous right before the ceremony and he surprised me by coming to talk to me right before. His words touched my heart and really got me ready for the biggest and best step I have taken so far in my life. He is attentive, understanding and fun too! He even brought several different suits to wear in case we had a preference. My husband and I invited him to the reception as a guest and sat him with our grandparents. He said he had a ball and so did they. My mom and her partner, Eugene, loved talking to him as well. He made some rounds and left us a beautiful note in our photo booth scrapbook.AND WE LOVED HIS PICTURES. We are so glad that we found him. He was the perfect person to marry us! Thank you so much!

    I don't know where to begin. :) First of all, you two definitely are a LOT of fun! Your sense of humor and your playful spirit will take you both very far in this relationship. The way you accept each other coming from two very different faiths, is an awesome tribute to the love you have for each other. Planning and combining rituals from both of your backgrounds was most enjoyable and a wonderful education for me. Your ceremony at the Domes was beautiful, light-hearted, spiritual, cultural and just a whole lot of fun! I am so happy to have served you in this way on your 'big day'. I can't wait to hear all the good news from you in the coming years.

    We are extremely happy with the ceremony that we co-created with Derek. We contacted Derek less than two months before our wedding. We had an initial talk with Derek over the phone to discuss what we were looking for in a wedding ceremony. Throughout the process of creating our ceremony Derek provided suggestions and actively sought our comments. Derek was very responsive to our requests and flexible in that we did not meet face to face until our rehearsal. In the end our ceremony was a meaningful combination of Derek's original program with unique readings and a wine box ceremony that we requested.

I could tell from the first moment how in love with each other you both are. . the setting for your ceremony was perfect. thank you so much for inviting me to your fun, entertaining and delicious reception. I enjoyed myself all evening long! Many blessings to you and your family.

    Derek did a great job! He lets you know exactly what he's doing and really takes pride in his job! My husband and I were very happy we chose him to marry us! We had met with at least five other possibilities before Derek. Once we met with him, we knew we liked him! He's also really willing to work with you to accommodate your needs. You will be happy you chose Derek!!

    We worked with Derek Dube - A truly great person. We reached out to him in an email and he got back to us with an amazing collection of inspiring and thoughtful ideas, and this made a huge impression on us. We went to meet him and within the first 5 minutes, we knew he was the one.

    We were greeted without any sense of judgement whatsoever - just a surprisingly warm and truly genuine person. We had a great conversation about our 3 unique perspectives on the world and our lives. This was the type of unique understanding and kindness that you can only dream of having on your special day.

    From the examples that were provided to us and the questions he had us answer, we could tell that we were going to get an absolutely customized ceremony (without having to work too hard at it either). Over the next couple months, we proceeded to dial in on the ceremony language via email. It was fun, creative, and probably the least stressful of all the elements involved in planning the day.

    He let us do whatever we wanted and had great suggestions along the way, letting us combine traditional vows guided by him as well as our own that were read by us. We incorporated a wine box ceremony - one of his many great ideas - and that really helped add to how memorable and perfectly awesome everything was. He attended our rehearsal dinner and filled in whatever logistical cracks remained, as he assured us he would when we were wondering about tiny impossible details a few weeks out.

    The ceremony went off without a hitch. It was just such a great day. It was even better than we thought it would be. So unique. Not only does this guy know what he's doing, he loves what he's doing: Attending to love itself, in its most pure form.

    Derek was the perfect wedding officiant for my husband and I's wedding. He made sure that our day was special and our ceremony was unique to us and our guests. He was extremely flexible with our schedules and made sure that even though we lived in a different state than him we were in constant communication leading up to the wedding. We highly recommend Derek for any occasion, especially a day as special as your wedding day.

    Derek was truly wonderful to work with!! Tony and I knew immediately after meeting with him that he was the perfect officiant for our wedding service, We didn't need to look any further. Our wedding ceremony was tailored to what we wanted it to be with the guidance of Derek. We were provided with sample ceremonies and were able to tailor these to fit what we wanted our ceremony to be. Any and all questions to Derek were promptly answered. Derek is so personable , we would recommend him to anyone for any type of service. Derek actually did a Baptism for my husband's cousins children. It was a pleasure to see him again. We would highly recommend Derek for his services and refer our family/friends. I found Derek on wedding wire myself and had a wonderful day with him leading off our day. Thank you Derek for making our wedding day so special!!

    I absolutely loved our Reverend. Derek Dube was amazing to work with. I honestly could not have found a better person to officiate our wedding. He helped us customize our ceremony to exactly what we wanted, he was attentive to our wants and needs, he assisted with and offered other vendors, he kept us informed on our timeline for getting the marriage license and offered all the requirements to do so. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an officiant for their wedding who wants someone who is going to to do an amazing job!

    Derek was very easy to work with and help my husband and I have a wonderful ceremony. He let us add and subtract parts of sample ceremonies that he had to make it our own piece. We were complimented on our uniqueness from our guests well after our wedding. Thank you Derek!

    I totally enjoyed working with the two of you on such a unique and sacred ceremony. The reading you chose, "On Friendship" is one of my favorites. Your two boys, Reece and Landry were wonderful additions as ring bearers. They added an element of fun to your ceremony. Blessings to all of you for a long, healthy and loving relationship as a new family.

    Brad and I absolutely loved our ceremony. We wanted to keep it simple yet meaningful, and Derek worked with us to develop exactly what we wanted. We had several people say it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. We feel very fortunate that we found him!

    It was a pleasure dealing with Rev. Dube and the World of Wisdom Ministry. They were very accomodating and taylored the service to our specific needs and beliefs. Great communication between all parties. We were never left wondering as to what was needed or what the process would involve. It was such a pleasure to know we were in capable hands. It was wonderful knowing the Ministry there for us.
