Rev. Bill Cruz

bill250Rev Bill, as he is affectionately called, brings with him a wealth of experience and training as a minister, therapist, and actor.

As an Ordained Minister of the Gospel, Rev Bill considers it an honor to officiate over what he believes is the strongest and most intimate relationship know to Man, i.e., the union between a man and a woman. The union of two precious lives, raised under different circumstances and situations, and now called to become one, ushers the couple to a myriad of rich and interesting adventures as they work together to build a home.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Rev Bill brings into this marital event over 23 years of experience in what makes a marital relationship strong and long-lasting. His formal pre-marital sessions deal with exploring and examining the major issues that marital couples bring to his counseling sessions and how to deal with them more effectively before saying, “I do.” After the marriage ceremony, he has served as an on-going resource to the couple in building a healthier marital dyad for years to come.

As an actor of both film and television, Rev Bill understands the importance of team work and using all of the resources available to make the marriage ceremony an event that will be remembered for a long time. His flexibility, openness and willingness to work with the couple in regards to the details of the ceremony results in making the marriage ceremony a treasured experience.

Rev Bill has been married for three decades to his bride, Theresa. Together they have raised and nurtured three children. Rev Bill and Theresa have been involved in ministry among the poor for years, helping and encouraging all to live lives of purpose as members of the community, filled with gratitude for what they have and what they can give.
