Lay Preachers

Another Titan question - I'm saying that there isn't currently an ordained minister on Titan. I want to have a funeral in my adventure. While there's nothing to stop it being a civil ceremony, or I could simply change things to add a minister, I'm wondering if there are any mainstream Christian sects that would authorize a lay preacher to perform funerals, marriages, etc. pending the arrival of a proper priest.

Wikipedia, Google, etc. are mostly saying no, but given the special circumstances I'm wondering if there's some system for making a temporary arrangement in any of the major churches.

Anyone know?
