The Island Minister TM
Rev. John Bostock Ph.D.
Ordained Minister

Rev. John Bostock is a properly ordained minister empowered to perform Weddings, Baptism, Funerals, Blessings, etc. or just a service. Other ministers are also available.


Weddings can be performed at a location of your choice (some restrictions apply).
We have even performed wedding ceremonies on a moving horse drawn carriage. The wedding ceremony can be tailored to suit your own religious beliefs or can be completely non-religious, your choice. Ministerial dress can be formal (cassock and stole), smart (suit), casual, western, or a mixture of them all (formal with cowboy hat is just one example).
With more than one minister available for your wedding, we are more able than most to accommodate your date and time requirements.

Just like weddings, Baptism can be performed almost anywhere, even in your own home, one location that is becoming very popular is a return to the origins of baptism - the sea.


The death of a loved one is always difficult. Just remember, the funeral service is just part of a Ministers duties at that sad time, other duties include caring for the bereaved and assisting with the arrangements.

Prices are dependant on service, time and distance. Arrangements can be made with other suppliers such as carriages, caterers, entertainers and venues.

About the Rev. John Bostock

John was born in London, England, and has been in Texas for 12 years, he still possesses a strong English accent and holds a Ph.D. in Astrophysics. He is very involved in Galveston's music scene, plays in two bands, does voice overs for the media and comedy, he has acted in movies, TV and many theatres and sings Elvis just like Elvis even singing in Vegas in 2007. After being ordained as a Minister John decided that weddings were probably the happiest ceremony he could ever perform for people and has broken a few records, being the very first to perform a ceremony on a horse drawn carriage, the very first to perform a ceremony on the Galveston - Bolivar ferry, etc., so If you want the deep English voice, the friendly, caring personality, and that person who is willing to go just that bit further for you, then John is your man!
