We had the privilege of having Dave Zuchelli spend a weekend with our church leadership to guide us through his Local Church Prisoners material.  Dave met with our staff, our church leadership, and our church’s outreach strategy team over the weekend, and ended with a challenging message for our entire congregation on Sunday morning. 

   It turned out to be an important strategic weekend for us as a church.  Dave’s down-to-earth teachings were extremely practical and easy to apply.  Each  session was followed by a hands-on workshop time in which we dreamed and worked on planning how to implement what we learned. 

   Overall, the entire weekend was highly profitable for our leadership team and for our church, and we unreservedly recommend Dave’s ministry for every congregation.

The Last Wedding

"This is a great read! Dave blends sound theology with his trademark humor. The result is a book that is enjoyable, informative, and thought-provoking. The Last Wedding is a book that everyone needs to read!"              ~Don Hunter~

"Great job expanding your wedding homily, Dave! This book was a pleasure to read. It had all the joy of listening to a friend tell stories over coffee but with the depth of Biblical commentaries explained in a compelling way."     ~Dave Dorst~

Great book! Once I started reading, I could not put it down. It's written in a very pleasant style and very thought provoking. Should be required reading for all couples getting married. Great for couples and a good resource to counseling couples (pastors will find it helpful in wedding preparation). I will be purchasing the book for couples in the future.              ~Rev. Joe Tagliaferre~

Marriage--what a world of intrigue and mystery it can bring. Zuchelli has given us a wonderful view inside this mystery of Union. With a warmth and wit, Dave takes us through this divine institution that has over the years become misaligned and misconstrued. I recommend this book highly.                    ~Dennis O'Daniel~

"My wife thought the book was delightful. I thought it was awesome. A great message put forth in a very readable, understandable and enjoyable way. Hope to see more of the same in the future."                   ~Steve Zwald~

Despite the regularity of human failure, God’s love for His people is steadfast and unfailing. Some might say, miraculous. As you read through the pages of this book, you will become intimately aware of an even bigger mystery: every time Jesus calls someone to Himself … a wedding takes place.              ~Julie Carobini~

Retreats & seminars

   Dave made our wedding day amazing. He was so personable, warm, and professional. Many of our guests thought he was part of the family--that's how special he made our day. Dave we can't thank you enough. You are truly a gem! ~Rima R.~


   Rev. Dave Zuchelli was an absolute perfect match for marrying us! It was as if he'd known us for years. He fit in with the whole family instantly.
   He made me and my new husband feel special and valued. If we end up doing a vow renewal, he will be the very first call I make! I highly recommend him to anyone in need of services for a celebrant!           ~Jennifer V.~


   Dave was amazing! We picked the best person to marry us! He is extremely personable and down to earth. He offered great advice on preparing for our wedding. If we had any questions he was a quick text or phone call away.
   Dave made our ceremony unique for us and we received many compliments from our guests on how beautiful and memorable ceremony was. He was very flexible as well.  
   We thought we threw him a curve with a Love Letter Ceremony. He discussed it in detail and made it extremely personal and a memory we and our guest will never forget.
   Thank you Dave, from the bottom of our hearts. We highly recommend Reverend Dave to any bride and groom! ~David C.~
