Congratulations on your engagement! I am an ordained, nondenominational pastor who has been performing weddings for over fifteen years. I enjoy helping couples craft a ceremony that uniquely represents them...it can be a short, simple ceremony or one with many special elements. I am passionate about the spiritual dimension of marriage and strive to honor that in the wedding ceremony. I believe that in honoring the tradition and spiritual aspect of marriage, your ceremony will be one you and your guests will find both meaningful and memorable.

I am a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, and have served in various ministry roles in New York state and in Charlotte, North Carolina. My resume includes marriage preparation, family ministry, and performing wedding and renewing of vows ceremonies, funerals, and baby dedications. Read less

We love reverend Jim! I have been to several weddings that he has officiated for friends and he is so thoughtful and sincere. You can really tell that he has taken the time to get to know the couples that he works with. We can't wait for him to officiate our wedding this November!

Jim is great!

The venue we got married at used him as a 'preferred' officiant, and we could not agree more. His zest for life shine through in his personality and in the way he communicates.

My fiance and I met with him prior to our wedding day to discuss how we would like the ceremony to go, and it was like sitting down with an old friend - not awkward at all. Jim is so personable and a joy to be around, and he made the whole process a breeze. Not to mention, he has a great sense of humor.

He made our wedding ceremony. He catered it to how we envisioned it, and put his on little spin on it. We had so many compliments on his delivery, and how great he was....you really can't ask for anything more. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone, as he really does care for the people he interacts with, and that is so important on a monumental day like your wedding.

Let me start out by saying Jim really took the time to get to know Greg and I. During the wedding planning process, he met with us twice for an extended period of time to go over the details of the ceremony and bounce ideas off of one another. Jim was at our rehearsal and lead the whole evening perfectly-we were really nervous and Jim calmed our nerves. He also came to the rehearsal dinner where he took the time to get to know our families and was such a great addition to the evening. Fast forward to the ceremony and he was flawless. Jim gave the most beautiful and personal speech and it was evident that he has a lot of experience. He lead the whole bridal party with suttle, non-verbal cues. Thank you, Jim!!!

Rev. Jim did a great job helping to make our ceremony all about us. He personalized our wedding to match us and help us to make it special. We also used him for premarital counseling and that was great getting to know him. He helped us learn a lot about each other and things that we didn't know before.

Jim was amazing from the first moment we met at a bridal show. He embrassed us and hugged us as if we had known him for years! We wanted an officiant that was Christian and someone that would do pre- marital counseling with us. Jim was that guy. Wonderful, honest, kind, patient, funny and sweet, we both enjoyed everytime we met, every email we received, every text message and every caring hug received. Jim was great. He never stopped smiling, which was awesome because it made the mood of the wedding preporation and the mood of our big day so wonderful and happy and positive! Every guests we spoke to, even non believers, said what an amazing service that was and they had never attended a wedding so special with an officiant so great. He put his personal suggestions and unique touches on every step of the way, getting to know us as a couple more and more each time we met. This made our day completely different and special to us both, and our families and friends that attended. We would love to be able to keep in touch with Jim, seeing as he was such a big part of our day. THANK YOU for everything, and if you are even thinking about using Jim, you should!

WOW, you're making me blush... : ) I honestly believe when nice things like this are expressed so beautifully that it is a reflection of how the couple let me into their hearts! Makes giving back MUCH easier verses, well, simply being on "one's best behavior"! Thanks for showing me your hearts!

We contacted Jim after seeing him officiate a wedding for our good friends last year. He met with us and was wonderfully warm and sincere with a genuine interest in our backgrounds. Unfortunately, he was unavailable for our date, but he recommended a fellow pastor who he thought would be perfect for our event. Fortunately for us, Heath Krueger, was available and we loved him! He made our ceremony so special and personal to us; so many people commented how wonderful it was!

We could not have dreamed of a better wedding ceremony. Rev. Jim Lytle was amazing and all night everyone kept telling us how it was the most beautiful ceremony they ever witnessed and how Rev. Lytle did such a great job! He really got to know us and made our ceremony so personal and special. We also did the pre-marriage preparation with him and are so thankful for his guidance. He is so accommodating and just really cares. We are so happy we found him!

WE LOVE YOU PASTOR JIM!!! What an amazing man of God to work with. Not too overbearing with religion but a perfect, simple and beautiful balance. Pastor Jim was fantastic for our ceremony and our guests just loved him! The most amazing thing about him was that he would call just to check in on me (the bride) to make sure I was okay and to let me know he was praying for me (even prayed for me right before the wedding) and with my groom during the ceremony. That speaks volumes about him as a man especially one in ministry. He was fun, caring, professional and even a little funny here and there. ;D

Reverend Jim was a breeze to work with! He made our special day even more special. He spent time speaking with our guests at the cocktail hour AND reception and they all had rave reviews about the ceremony he constructed just for us. Thank you, Reverend Jim, SO much for the absolutely crucial role you've played in our lives by officiating our marriage. We were so touched by the things you said during our ceremony and have heard the same from those that were in attendance! We were so happy with the way our day turned out :)
