OBX Ministries:
Your Wedding Officiants



 Greetings and Blessings! I am David Rhodes  and I was lucky enough to grow up in the Outer Banks, but moved away for too many years. I returned home in 2008 and have no plans to leave again. The ocean and sound are major sources of energy, inspiration and peace for me. Locally I am known  for my sharp wit, zany and occasionally bizarre sense of humor, clear heart to heart communication style, passion for animals, emotional transparency and deep dedication to living a life of conscious contact with the Higher Power. I believe that, while life has challenges, living a joyful life is the point of it all and that consistent joy filled living is possible for everyone. That belief forms the basis of my spiritual counseling services. To me marriage is one of the best vehicles possible to release self centeredness and learn compassion and unconditional love for others. Death is simply a transition to a higher state of consciousness and connection with the Higher Power. Both events are honored and celebrated by OBX Ministries.

    Some of the worldly credentials:

> PhD, Counseling Psychology
> Certified clinical hypnotherapist
 > Licensed, ordained minister
 >Seminar and small group leader
> Platform speaker with 500-1000 person    audiences
 >Successful business owner
> Championship race car driver
> Married with 4 fur babies
> Board member and past         President, OBXSPCA

> A real person without pretense ♥♥♥
