Comment to those looking at my sermons: My sermons are dry bones of no use to anyone unless the Holy Spirit breathes life into them.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Anday Stanley - Catalyst 2005 & 2006
One of my favorite illustrations: The little boy who stood in the offering plate because he didn’t have any other offering.
Family: Wife of 24 years is a school teacher and two grown children in college.
What my parents think of my sermons: Better than my dads (Both of them! My parents, that is!)!
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Too...too...too, many stories, much volume, long!
Best advice given to me about preaching: There is no such thing as a bad short sermon.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Talk to people about Jesus everyday!
Do nothing from selfish ambition...consider others better than yourself.
Something funny that happened while preaching: I asked a rhetorical question while praying that had something to do with soccer (dumb!) and a 3 year old answered out loud for all to hear. At least she was listening...I love you Heather!
What I want on my tombstone: He ran with his eyes fixed on JESUS....he finished strong!
