What are the guidelines for a Fathers House Church pastor to officiate our wedding?

If you are interested in having a Fathers House Church pastor officiate your wedding, premarital counseling is required prior to the wedding. If the premarital counseling is completed outside of Fathers House Church, counseling must be scripture-based, and we will need documentation of completion. This documentation should include the curriculum studied, a minimum of 6 hours completed and who facilitated your process on a form from your premarital counselors directly emailed to In addition, we recommend a minimum of a $300 honorarium for a Highlands pastor who officiates your wedding and should be given on the day of the wedding.
