Soul-Satisfying New Career

Although the exact date that full marriage equality will arrive in Ohio is not known, it is starting to look as if it will be in the foreseeable future. In preparation for that date, I am working to establish myself as an accredited humanist Celebrant/ Officiant.

I am already ordained in the Universal Life Church and licensed to perform legal weddings in the State of Ohio. My former professional sales career and extensive community volunteering provides a solid foundation for this new career. My Officiant website is set up and listed (for free and low-ranking) at and Although my plan is to offer reasonably-priced Celebrant/ Officiant services, the field is filled with many high-end services and so advertising to the target market requires substantial funds.

This crowd-funded project will cover:

  • Training & registration as a Humanist Celebrant ($150);
  • Memberships in American Humanist Association, Americans United and local affiliates ($75);
  • Vestments, Forms, Certificates and supplies ($150);
  • An initial Marketing budget ($650);
  • Fees and cost of Premiums ($175)

Premiums (Thank You gifts):

This isn’t the sort of project that results in a book or recording that could be offered as a Reward; I have selected some of my photography. I hope you’ll find something interesting or inspiring:
