About Adrián Olivas

Education: I was educated in México. Most of my education was in private church-run schools (Methodist). I studied to be a public school teacher (Normal para Maestros). I was a teacher in México for a few years. When I was saved, the Lord called me to the ministry. I entered the Instituto Bíblico de las Asambleas de Dios in Tijuana in 1965. Upon graduating I became dean and a teacher. I was there for 12 years. Having married I moved to the US with my wife. I went to college to learn English.

Comment to those looking at my sermons: I taught homelitcs for a few years and was on the sermon scoring committee for the students at the Bible Institute. I enjoy a well organized, prepared, and prayed sermon.

Family: Married for 32 years. Wife’s name Eva. I have two adult sons, 28 and 30 years of age. Both are music majors with a calling for the ministry.

What my parents think of my sermons: When my mother lived, she enjoyed hearing me preach.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife enjoys my sermons (of course she does most of the transcribing for me and make "adjustments" where needed).

Best advice given to me about preaching: Study, pray and study some more. Be brief yet concise. Hit the mark.

Books that have had an impact: Probably the best authors I’ve read are Ramon Bennett, Myer Pearlman, Floyd Woodworth, Josh McDowell, Phillip Keller, and Alice B. Luce

Hobbies: Reading and good music (including classical). I am more of a listener than a talker.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesús is coming!

Something funny that happened while preaching: Once when preaching in México in the state of Tabasco, there were so many mosquitoes I swallowed one!

What I want on my tombstone: A man of few but powerful words.
