Education: MA in Christian Leadership - Multnomah University
BA in Biblical Studies - New Hope Christian College
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Hopefully, you can find something that you can use. I take Jesus' words every week and use them to create "aha" moments in people.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Pretty much anything I listen to by Matt Chandler
One of my favorite illustrations: Three types of people that attend church:
- Referees: people who like to blow their whistles and make sure everyone else is following the rules
- Fans: people who sit on their butts and think they are contributing to the team
- Players: the few that actually give all they have to the mission of the organization
Family: I'm blessed by my incredible wife, Heather, and our two amazing children, Jackson and Emma.
What my parents think of my sermons: Not too shabby, son. Not too shabby.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: "Why do you make such weird faces?"
Best advice given to me about preaching: Just have a conversation with people
Books that have had an impact: Simple Church, Who Stole My Church?, Leading Change
Hobbies: Snowboarding, fishing, playing Legos with my son
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I would quote 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
What I want on my tombstone: Loving husband, caring father, man of God
