Rev. Donna Hopkins Britt has been with United Faith Leaders since our earliest days. I know Donna personally and I trust her more than I trust myself as a pastor. She is a veteran pastor who is a delight to spend time with and has her feet firmly on the ground. She brings maturity, stability and joy to every room she enters. You would be grateful to secure her for any pastoral role as soon as possible.
Crystal has been one of the most skilled and flexible faith leaders with United Faith Leaders for years! She has served many of our visitors and everyone has been very happy with their experience. You can trust her to be outstanding, professional and even fun (when appropriate)! If she does not have a scheduling conflict then definitely get her in contract to help with your need.

Skilled in many areas
Kayla and I were in seminary together and worked together following graduation. She was dedicated in both places. Kayla is an effective preacher. I have kept one of her sermons that she gave to a congregation because it spoke to me - it has been a resource of comfort and a catalyst of introspection. We have served together as chaplains and worship leaders, where she has ministered to those who needed a knowledgeable and trustworthy listener. She has the ability to connect quickly with families whether in joy or sorrow.

Kayla has conducted several funeral and memorial services for families served by our three-location funeral home. She has consistently performed so wonderfully that she is the only clergy we use when a family asks us to find Protestant clergy for them. Reviews from our professional staff and from families have been excellent, without exception or deviation. She conducts in-depth consultations with family about their loved one and provides a service so personal that those attending think she has known the person for years prior to death.

Credentials Evidenced:Virginia Wedding Officiant
Kayla was the icing on the cake at our wedding! She took time to get to know our story, gathered our input, and added personal touches to make the vows more meaningful. We loved her delivery of the vows - calm, caring, reassuring - in that slight NC accent! She was prepared, flawless, and everyone came up to us after asking where we found her. She truly made our night special, and we couldn't recommend her enough!
Dr. Paula Parker is an esteemed mentor with important insights gained through her doctoral studies, pastoral care, teaching, and rich experience. She carries powerful knowledge which she delivers through her book, Roots Matter, and her ministry by the same name. If you can secure her for one-on-one spiritual guidance or as a speaker then you should. In any case, read her book (and listen to her interview on The Coffeepot Fellowship Podcast). Dr. Parker's work with Roots Matter is important for everyone because everyone's family has trauma and everyone's trauma needs to be redeemed for its survivors.
Rabbi Patrick is a very accomplished pastor, writer, speaker, musician, entrepreneur, and community leader. Get Patrick for your family life cycle events personally or bring him in for religious discussions. He is a magnetic, lively, incisive personality who is comfortable in difficult or complex situations. I love Rabbi Patrick for interfaith panels! He is NOT your stereotypical, stodgy rabbi.
I've worked with Kerra in various capacities and am happy to endorse her with enthusiasm for very wide ranging audiences. Kerra has an open mind and a heart to serve diverse souls. She is kind, professional and fun to be around.
If I were not already married, I would definitely have Jay do our wedding! He is thoughtful, faithful, gentle and patient. Too many couples leave the officiating to someone who has never done it before when they marry. Performing a wedding is more than just reading words - it is binding us to tradition, to one another, to the community at large, and to God. Trust Jay to help you do this with meaning and clarity. He is also a fabulous interviewer if you are lucky enough to be a guest on his podcast!
