Senior Pastor/ Professional Wedding Officiant and Celebrant


PAM POWERS MOORE
.

My name is Pam and I am a Licensed, Ordained Non-Denominational Christian Minister, with a primary focus on family ministry. I have a strong faith in God, and I know within my heart that I could not have made it through life without His leading and direction. I strive to instill the love of God within the family unit itself and follow God's lead in ministering not only to couples, but to parents and their children.

.

God has gifted me with the ability to write and express in words the thoughts and feelings that are written upon people's hearts. I use this gift to create and officiate custom-written, personalized wedding and vow renewal ceremonies for couples all over West Virginia and the East Coast. I also do the same with baby blessings, christenings and dedication ceremonies. I officiate all life event services and am always available to conduct Celebration of Life Services when needed. The gift of life is a precious thing and every life should be celebrated for the beauty that it holds. It is always my extreme honor when asked to provide this service and I am humbled when given the opportunity. Distance is never an issue and I am happy to travel to whatever location I am needed.

.

My services and interaction with the couples and families I work with extends far beyond the event date. I am totally unobtrusive but, at the same time, always willing to help in any way that I can and always happy to do my part to help enrich the family unit for the betterment of all mankind. I also do Christian Bible-Based Counseling and believe that even though we all go through our own unique struggles, God will always turn our ashes to beauty if we seek Him and allow Him into our hearts.

 

The Father's Heart is a heart of Love and my deepest desire is to share HIS love with all those I come into contact. I strive to do this not only through words, but through the way I live and conduct my life. My grandmother used to tell me that my life might be the only Bible some people read, and I have never forgotten that. I try to follow her guidance and granted, none of us are perfect... That's where God's grace come in, but I believe that if people cannot tell I'm a Christian by the way that I live, then no words I could ever speak would convince them otherwise.  I strive to be compassionate and supportive when sharing both the good and challenging events that occur in the daily lives of the people I work with and do my utmost best to keep it "real.  Let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance in any way. I would love the opportunity to work with you.

Devoted Husband, Ministerial Assistant and All-Around Good Guy

MIKE MOORE
.
The man in this photo receives little to no recognition so I'm here to shout it. ����  Mike has encouraged and supported me in every aspect of the ministry and I am so very thankful that God gave me such a supportive Husband.
.
Every time I officiate a wedding, and see him looking on, I smile as I am reminded of my blessings. Mike doesn't take pictures and help me with every wedding because it's his job, he does it because he loves me and wants to be a part of what I do. It wasn't always this way, though. Prior to retirement from his full-time job in 2018, Mike worked long hours and even though he had Saturdays off, his weekends were precious. Now, I am so thankful it's different. He drives, sometimes long distances, and once we arrive at the venue, he is on his feet helping me set up my sound system, making sure everyone can hear what is being said and helping me direct the flow of the wedding, all while analyzing everything he sees to determine which photos he could take to best enhance my memories of the day. He doesn't do it to get recognition, he does it because he loves me and it's just the way he is. 
Mike and I have been married since May 1972, and our marriage is the inspiration behind what I do. He traveled with me to Cherry Point, North Carolina, where I officiated my very first wedding in April 2011, and since then he has helped me in many different capacities. He is also a huge help with the weddings I officiate at our home venue, Heaven's Grace. Whether it's setting up chairs, prepping the Countryside Venue for a stellar wedding or just lending a helping hand, Mike does a great job and can always be counted on to be there when needed. I'm so grateful to have a husband who loves so deeply, supports so faithfully, and encourages endlessly. He's a wonder to behold....Steadfast, patient, enduring, and loving beyond what I knew was possible. We may not have always been able to do weddings together, but through it all, he has been my rock and my biggest fan. I have been taking on fewer and fewer long-distance weddings each year so that I can give more time to this fine man right here. I pursued my passions. It's time to give back and start pursuing more of his.
