Sermon or series that made a difference: The sermon series that made a difference in our church is "The Be Attitudes - Required Attitudes for a Church in Transition". This series was not based on Matthew 5 but what I believed to be important attitudes for our membership to transition to the next level. Sermon topics: Be Positive, Be Prayerful, Be Committed, Be Flexible, Be Joyful, Be Grateful, and Be A Witness. Thank God, we’re working toward the right attitude now.
Family: I’ve been married to my lovely wife Tracy for 15 years and we have 3 beautiful children, Kari, Aysia, and Myles and one grandson, Lil Jimmy. My family has been very supportive in my ministry endeavors for the past 18 years of which I am so grateful.
Best advice given to me about preaching: My pastor, HB Charles Jr of the Mt Sinai Church in Los Angeles, said to me once, "Clint, make friends with books because the only great minds are those that made friends with great books."
Books that have had an impact: There are so many. "Rediscovering Pastoral Ministry" by John McArthur, What is a Healthy Church by Mark Dever, "The Tentmaking Pastor - The Joy Bivocational Ministry by Dennis W Bickers.
Hobbies: I love to play and watch basketball. Read Books. Cook. Travel. Collect DVD and music CDs (jazz and gospel).
What I want on my tombstone: He served to make a difference in the world for God
