“Dorrien played an essential role in our preparation for marriage. We had no idea what a blessing Dorrien's guidance would have on our relationship. His marriage coaching allowed us to have a safe place to discuss and work through our weaknesses as a couple. These types of discussions allowed us to make progress in areas that we were struggling with before getting married. He helped us build a solid foundation to carry us beyond when we say "I do."

"We knew you were a great officiator, but you were also a great premarital counselor as well. Allyse and I considered our relationship to be strong beforehand, but your counseling really allowed us to think outside the box and grow deeper and even stronger than before. More importantly, you showed us how to keep Christ the center of our marriage. It’s not easy to find someone as knowledgeable as you and at the same time completely relatable and down to earth. Thank you for everything Dorrien!"

"It was an amazing experience having Dorrien counsel and marry us. We couldn't imagine anyone else shepherding us through a very hectic time in our lives. In our marriage counseling, he provided many new insights into our personalities that enabled us to hit the ground running in our marriage. While nothing can fully prepare you for married life, Dorrien offered personal experiences in areas such as conflict resolution, spiritual life, boundaries with extended family and friends, and handling finances. On the day of the ceremony, Dorrien was an absolute professional. He provides a truly unique skill set in his ability to inject calm into a hectic day while connecting with us in a fun and engaging way. We believe that all of these things helped to make our day really special. Dorrien's influence will follow us for many years to come."

He inspired us to see our marriage as God intended and that motivated us to do and be better to one another. We appreciate everything you did in our time of need."

"Pastor Dorrien, you were a true blessing at our wedding. During the process you were very open to suggestions and ideas that allowed us to have the ceremony in our own special way. We felt very relaxed during a situation that can be sometimes stressful. Your presence in leading the ceremony really made our special day perfect. Everyone seemed touched by the entire event."

"Dorrien's passion for great marriages is inspiring and in our post-marital counseling sessions he helped us focus on ways to make our marriage stronger. Because of his wise advice and practical action steps, we are more aware of the "weather conditions" in our home and can now be intentional in creating the climate for our relationship to thrive."

"We were counseled and married by Dorrien. Dorrien made the whole process easy and fun. He was very accommodating and understanding of our busy schedules as we balanced work, life & wedding planning. His counseling sessions were enjoyable, practical and even down right hilarious at times! The advice he gave was authentic and reinforced principles to build us up as a couple to strengthen our love. As the officiant he was punctual & professional; he allowed us to tailor the ceremony to our desires and was flexible during it, allowing us to concentrate on each other. We highly recommend Dorrien to anyone for counseling, officiating or both."
