Christian Wedding Licensed Minister Endorsements:

I was asked to officiate a wedding for a couple in our church. I wanted to be licensed by a reputable Christian organization to make it special for them.

Hello, I’m Diane Jones, a small-town girl who now resides in the suburbs of Richmond, VA. My educational background is Finance/Accounting, but Human Resources has been my focus in more recent years. I started at CLI in August of 2020. The Coronavirus pandemic’s isolation forced me to do some soul searching, which included answering my call into the Christian Ministry.

I’m a hopeless romantic by nature. God created us to love and be loved. As a member of my church’s wedding services ministry, I’ve had the pleasure to assist couples with their understanding of marriage. I also got to participate in their nuptials. Through the exposure, God gave me the vision of His plan for me.

I don’t take my service for Him lightly. Therefore, pursuing more official training as a Wedding Officiant had to be my next assignment. I decided on the Christian Leaders Institute based on its positive reputation, free/low-cost tuition, and self-paced learning. The coursework has given me greater knowledge and confidence to guide others in the Biblical principles of marriage.

Becoming a Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant at the Christian Leaders Alliance is a great blessing!

I prayed and asked God to give me a wedding officiant class. Instead, He gave me more. He brought me to this Institute that His hands are all over. The pastors and trainers are humble and take their time to bring

training to those that seek it. Although I joined to become a wedding officiant, I am staying to take as many courses as possible. Then I can learn as much as I can to be prepared to do whatever God has called me to do. I am learning my purpose and trusting God because He knows best. Thank you Christian Leaders Alliance!
