American Ministries is dedicated to helping others get married. In today's economy most ministers are forced to charge higher rates for wedding services and the local courts have long waiting lists ,We strive to keep our fees at a minimum.  We are many wedding pastors who are full time or volunteer our time to the Ministry so others can have the wedding of their dreams, without paying huge fees.  We will also officiate your marriage at the courthouse at the time you get your marriage license. One of our Officiants will go to the courthouse with you to file your paperwork and you will  be married and your paper work filed on the spot by our Officiant.
