Several years ago I had a small wedding chapel close to the intersection of Cottage Hill Road and Schillinger Road. The church I was serving as the pastor would meet there, but over time, the chapel became the primary place for the church, and a secondary use for simple elopement wedding ceremonies.
In 2016, my church (CrossHope Chapel) moved to a new location at 9943 Lifeline Court, just north of Airport Boulevard off Snow Road.
I am still able to officiate weddings at our new location for couples or small family groups who may be looking for a simple courthouse alternative by an actual ordained local church pastor.
Please visit the “Directions to Chapel“ page for map and directions to CrossHope Chapel, 9943 Lifeline Ct Ste C, Mobile, Alabama 36608.
CrossHope Chapel is not a public wedding venue, but there are times when it is not a problem to meet at our church location for a simple elopement ceremony, provided the wedding is in line with the CrossHope Chapel officiating policy, it’s just the couple or a few people with you, and no longer than 30 minutes in Chapel.
Please know that CrossHope Chapel is set up with round tables for our nontraditional approach to worship and Bible teaching, so there are no pews and no formal aisle, but is still ideal as a courthouse alternative.
Please use the availability form below to check if I am able to officiate on your day and/or to check on meeting at CrossHope Chapel for your simple ceremony.
