“Launching marriages one vow at a time”

09-23-2000 Stephenson-Youngberg

The Rev. Dr. Gerald W. (Jerry) Montgomery, as part of his responsibilities as an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ, has been privileged for more than 30 years to officiated at more than 5,500 weddings in many places around Puget Sound. Many wedding services were hosted at my home or at various locations in the Tacoma – Fort Lewis – Olympia – south King County areas.

I am retired from all ministry services, including weddings. Please contact my longtime friend and colleague in ministry,  the Rev. Dale Amundsen, for your wedding.

You can visit the different sections of this website to learn more about me, my ministry as a retired local church pastor and as a police-fire chaplain.

Here you also can learn more about Washington State marriage license requirements as well as find some links to helpful resources.

Military couples are invited to contact the Rev. Dale Amundsen when there is a time issue for your wedding such as a deployment.  We’ll find a way to make your wedding happen.
