Jack Porcello is a full time minister. This is not just something he does in his spare time. As such, he is legally authorized in NY State to officiate at your wedding. He has been involved in ministry work since 1985, serving at various Christian, Interfaith, and Independent churches in the area. Currently he serves as pastor of Joining Hands Ministries & Our Fellowship of Rochester, NY.

As an open minded, progressive minister, Jack understands people believe or observe their beliefs differently than he does. He will be sure to make your ceremony representative of what you believe, not what he believes.

He will perform your wedding your way!

Jack can also be available to legally solemnize a ceremony that will be presided over in all other regards by someone who is not legally authorized in New York State to officiate at a wedding ceremony.

Personalized and interfaith weddings are Jack's specialties. Contact him to discuss how he can help make your ceremony a memorable event. He will work with you to ensure that your ceremony is fully personalized and everything you want it to be.

Respect for other people is very important to Jack. He will perform your wedding regardless of your own personal beliefs. It doesn't matter if you do not belong to a religion, attend church, or if you have different beliefs. He will make no attempts to convert you, or to use your wedding as a means to convert others.

It's fine if you are living together. It doesn't matter if you are divorced. There's no need for an annulment. You do not have to agree to join or attend a church or raise your children according to any specific faith. Pre-marital counseling is not required, but available if requested.

As a full time minister, Jack is available to meet with you in his home to discuss your ceremony days or evenings, and during some limited weekend hours. He can also hold telephone consultations. His schedule allows him the time to add a very special touch to your event.

Whether you would like a private ceremony in his home office, a large formal event at the location of your choice, or anything in between - Jack will make your wedding special and memorable. When you choose Jack you can rest assured that he will use his vast experience and invest time and effort into making your wedding special.

Entrust your once in a lifetime event to Jack Porcello, and rest ensured in his training, experience, respect, flexibility, and personal attention.
