Education: Batchelor of Theology (Hons) Nottingham University
Comment to those looking at my sermons: I prepare full manuscripts, but preach just glancing at them.
I then find God gives me extra things as I preach, and He’s always a lot better than me...
Sermon or series that made a difference: Willow Creek /Hybels/ John Ortberg etc have profoundly effected how I lead and preach.
One of my favorite illustrations: Fisherman who throws back all the big fish because he’s only got a small frying pan.
His friend says "GET A BIGGER FRYING PAN!"
Family: A husband of but one wife
A father of but three kids!
A miniature dachshund dog...
What my parents think of my sermons: They’re not Christians yet, but they think I’m good at my job.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: He’s very handsome
(Okay, I wrote that myself)
Best advice given to me about preaching: Enjoy yourself! And remember passion and enthusiasm communicates!
Books that have had an impact: Pilgrim’s Progress
The Divine Conspiracy, Dallas Willard
Hobbies: Running, canoeing, reading
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world
Something funny that happened while preaching: A woman stood up and took her skirt off, then walked out.
What I want on my tombstone: I told you I was ill!
