Timmy made everything easy and the ceremony was wonderful.

Reviewed On 6/02/2013 by Erica H

Pastor Timmy and his wife Jana were a pleasure to work with. Not only were they very responsive, but they made us feel at ease with them. We currently do not belong to a church here in KC but we were looking for our ceremony to be a traditional Christian event. That's exactly what we got with Pastor Timmy, although I feel that he would've worked with us on however we felt the ceremony should go. He was so nonjudgemental and I plan to look into his church as soon as all of the post-wedding stuff dies down. I have a feeling we would feel right at home there. Thanks Timmy and Jana!

Timmy was perfect for our wedding. He was very friendly, very articulate and easy to talk to. My husband and I confided in him with some family issues that have been going on and he was more than willing to talk to us and give us advice. He was a huge hit with our family, he did a great job during our ceremony and everyone in our audience really enjoyed listening to him speak. My husband and I aren't religious but he was very understanding and treated us with the utmost respect. He is a great choice for any couple that hasn't yet found a church or if you just wanted a great speaker!

Timmy was awesome to work with! We booked him last year when we got engaged and just got married 10/20. We had our initial meeting with him last year and immediately felt comfortable and knew we wanted him there on our day. We didn’t get around to doing the complimentary sessions he offers with officiating but wish we would have. You can tell he has lots of experience and answered all of my silly questions and was so kind and friendly to me and everyone involved. Jana was also super responsive and helpful when I had questions - thank you guys so much! Truly was amazing working with you and having you around for our day!

Timmy is an amazing counselor, I came to him I did not see myself as worthy of marriage again. After meeting with him on several occasions he helped me find my own self worth.

Pastor Timmy went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. He was very attentive and listened to our needs. He allowed us to customize our ceremony and include our children which was very special for all of us. Our guest loved him and his very contagious positive energy. We chose Pastor Timmy not only because he is a close friend but because he really cared about us a couple and genuinely wanted us to be happy, healthy and married! Not to mention he continued to guide us in the direction to be a stronger couple and prayed with us which was very special to us. Pastor Timmy was perfect and we couldn't have picked a better person to perform our ceremony. We are forever grateful for all that he has done for us and continues to do for us. - Lisa

I would strongly suggest if you intend to only use Timmy Gibson as a wedding officiant, you're making a big mistake. Timmy is a great Life Coach, Pastor, Friend, Mentor, Counselor and good dude. If I had only known Timmy from officiating my wedding I would have said something nice anyways. But I knew Timmy on a personal level. He was my pastor. We would network professionally and hang out socially. Strong and matured, but humble character. Timmy is full of integrity. I highly recommend you connect with him and make him, not only part of your wedding day, but also a part of your life. Curveball: Timmy didn't actually officiate my wedding! My wife and I did pre-marriage counseling with Timmy but found out he was booked with 2 other weddings the same day as ours. Conveniently for us, Timmy's dear wife, Jana-Banana, officiated our wedding for us. We were just as comfortable with Jana as we were with Timmy. Don't be intimidated by Timmy's tattoos or beautiful hair. He will serve you like you're the king and queen of the castle. He is so easy to talk to and laugh with. 5 out of 5 Stars! Again, don't just hire this guy; befriend him!

Pastor Timmy Gibson is far above and beyond amazing! When we first met with pastor Timmy his bright smile and charismatic personality won us over! His knowledge and passion for love and true intimacy can only be matched by the ancient poet Rumi. Timmy is personable, accepting, and best of all, he is empathetic. Throughout the whole experience I feel like Pastor Timmy became a part of the family. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to tie "TheKnot". 10 out of 10 stars!

We met Timmy a few years ago when we hired him for our wedding and premarital counseling! The premarital counseling was very useful and I loved that his marriage series included his wife. He did such a fantastic job with our ceremony that we attended his church services and used him for additional counseling with life issues. Timmy has a way of making you feel cared for and not judged. His message is one of love and his love for people, relationships and life is what makes him so great at everything he does! Both my husband and I would highly recommend him!

Timmy Gibson is an excellent communicator and animated speaker. From the beginning, he made us feel confident in his ability to perform the task of a wedding officiant. We received our wedding ceremony script early in the planning process and Timmy was quick to answer any questions we had. We were happy he blended a traditional Christian ceremony with our non-traditional written vows. Also, it was a real help to us that he printed our vows and kept them for us until the appropriate moment during the ceremony. I am so happy we chose Timmy Gibson as our wedding officiant! He helped us achieve our dream wedding!

So happy we chose Timmy to be our officiant in our Union Station wedding in May 2016! Mine and my husband's families are in Kansas City but we moved to Boston a couple of years ago. Timmy was so easy to talk to; we met with him during a planning trip to KC, he was quick to respond via email throughout the entire process, and his online counseling classes were insightful. Timmy is very talented and definitely has a calling for public speaking...his voice is soothing, witty, and touching. He sounds actually a little like Matthew McConaughey. Timmy did such a good job adapting our ceremony to us (sentimental and a little religious....he rounded everything out and it appealed to everyone but most of all to my husband and me!) We did a ring warming in our ceremony too (passed our rings in a glass box among our guests during the ceremony so everyone could "warm" them with a little prayer or wish then they returned to us to exchange during our vows) and Timmy came up with such a sweet speech to explain it. As soon as we met Timmy we knew he was the one we wanted to marry us. We didn't regret it for a second! Perfect choice!
