Elope in Mobile, Alabama…
CrossHope Chapel is a nondenominational church fellowship with an informal approach to doing church, and the church I serve as pastor.
Our Sunday church experience includes a thru-the-word verse-by-verse conversational Bible teaching format, and a relaxed gathering that is simpler and smaller to allow for opportunity to fellowship, ask questions at anytime.
Please visit the church’s website page “Directions to Chapel“ 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.
