Officiant, Chuck Randle

Papa updated January 2013

 I am Chuck Randle, a resident of the Pensacola Beach, Florida area,  Pastor Emeritus of  the Pensacola Beach Community Church.  Prior to my ministry here, I served a lengthy pastorate as Senior Pastor of the First Congregational Church (UCC) of West Dundee, Illinois.  Over the years, I have conducted many, many weddings, and there are very few kinds of experiences I have not encountered.  Three things that I am very proud of are these; first, I have a healthy respect for all those who come to me seeking to be married, and have developed friendships lasting over the years. Secondly, I have never dropped a ring during the ceremony; and thirdly, I have never mistakenly used the wrong names for the Bride or Groom!

For credentials, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from McKendree College, Lebanon, Illinois; a Master of Divinity from the Evangelical Theological Seminary , Naperville, Illinois (now named Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston); and a Doctor of Ministry from the Bethany Theological Seminary, Oakbrook, Illinois (now located in Richmond,  Indiana).


The weddings at which I officiate are designed especially for the Bride and Groom.  They are professionally done and very personable. They may be religious ceremonies, or civil.  The Bride and Groom are encouraged to participate in the decision about elements included.  If children are involved, they may be an integral part of the ceremony.

There are many beautiful places on the Island that provide memorable settings for that special day in your life.  You may like to dig your toes in the sand, or sit in an air conditioned church, or enjoy the surroundings of a beautiful park.  Or, you may have other ideas that I'm happy to discuss with you.

We can make all of this happen.  Your inquiries are welcome.

In addition to weddings, many people come to this beautiful setting on the Gulf of Mexico to renew their wedding vows.  

When necessary, we will assign another Officiant to your wedding or vow renewal, unless we have specifically scheduled Chuck to your event. We only work with experienced people of integrity, individuals we have known for some time and for whom we have great respect. Your wedding or vow renewal is important to us and the person who has the honor of performing your ceremony should be someone of quality and sincerity.
