  Ministers and Officiants
Feel free to bring your own minister to The Stone Chapel, or call one of these helpful people if you need an officiant.

The Reverend John Hartman is the pastor at Fellowship Presbyterian Church in Greensboro, having arrived in the Triad in February 2012.

As an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA), and pastor at Wake Forest Presbyterian Church for over 13 years, John brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to couples seeking to be married.

My desire is to share how God has created, ordered, and blessed the covenant of marriage. I hope to communicate in a personal and meaningful way that love is more then a feeling or an emotion, but a whole life lived together. My prayer is that as each couple makes it vows to one another, they will put into practice those wonderful words found in the scriptures, "As God's own, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, and patience, forgiving each other as the Lord has forgiven you, and crown all these things with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."(Colossians 3:12-14)

Reverend Kayelily Middleton is a non-denominational minister who has officiated weddings in the Triangle for ten years. She has lots of wonderful ceremony material for you to review and decide what is just right for you!
