Weddings at Asbury

Asbury United Methodist Church welcomes weddings of members, individuals with strong Asbury connections and members of smaller United Methodist Churches who need a bigger space for their wedding.  

Weddings at Asbury are officiated by one of our pastors on staff or, with permission from our Senior Pastor, an ordained elder of The United Methodist Church.

The Wedding Guidebook with fees is available in PDF format. Email Rachael Holloway at rachaelh@visitasbury.org for the PDF.

Same-Gender Weddings

It is with joy that we celebrate that same-gender marriage is now legal in the United States. It is with regret and sorrow that we share the following letter that our pastors and church received from The Great Plains Bishop, Scott Jones. As a result of this statement by our bishop, Rev. Gayla Rapp and Rev. Lee Johnson are not allowed to perform same-gender weddings, and they cannot be hosted at Asbury.

At Asbury United Methodist Church where "all means all," we want to minister to our entire congregation. Leighann Prothro, Director of Children and Youth, has received her license to perform weddings. She is available to perform same-gender weddings of Asbury members at off-site locations.
