Interfaith Officiants/Ministers perform private weddings, commitment ceremonies, funerals, baby namings/welcomings, memorial services, vow renewals, handfastings, adoption ceremonies, family unions, ship christenings, home blessings, and other life-cycle events.
We may also perform non-traditional religious or Humanist ceremonies in a variety of settings including on a beach, in a park, by the ocean, in the mountains, on a ski slope, at a banquet hall or at an event center.
We, Interfaith Officiants are trained in world religions and inter-spirituality, and can assist people in identifying their own spiritual beliefs through a process of spiritual self-discovery.
We come from many different faith backgrounds and have different philosophies and personal theologies, yet are well-versed in a multitude of religious traditions. We share a commitment to serving individuals, couples and families in a very personal and respectful way, building ceremonies around the wishes, preferences, beliefs and practices of the clients they serve.
Like hospital chaplains, Interfaith Officiants generally do not proselytize on behalf of any one faith tradition, but respect and honor them all.
Interfaith Officiants differ from Chaplains in that we usually work independently and serve the public at large, as opposed to Chaplains, who are employed by the military, hospitals, or other institutions.
If you are in need of any of the above-referenced services, Reverend Tonya Reed is an Interfaith Minister, Ordained by the University of Sedona, who will tailor ceremonies to support your spiritual evolution and needs.
