About Jelle Horjus

Education: University of Utrecht, department of theology (4 years) Dutch Baptist Seminary (2 years)

Comment to those looking at my sermons: I feel sorry for my poor English. But I hope you will still get the message and the right intention.

Sermon or series that made a difference: to me these sermons made a difference: John Stott’s sermons, available for free in MP3 at All Soul’s website: http://www.allsouls.org/ascm/allsouls/static/sermons/home.html

Family: Married to a beautiful Romanian woman, and together we have a small daughter

What my parents think of my sermons: My father is a preacher as well, I think I benefited greatly from his experience. We discuss each other’s sermons, and this is very nice.

Best advice given to me about preaching: Isolate the dominant thought, and arrange your material to serve it

Books that have had an impact: John Stott, I believe in Preaching; Alasdair McIntyre, After Virtue; Vincent Brummer, The Model of Love; Paul Fiddes, Past Event and Present Salvation; Darrell Guder, The Continuing Conversion of the Church

Hobbies: Listening and watching Italian Opera DVD’s together with my wife and playing together with my daugther

Something funny that happened while preaching: I was once asked to preach at an evangelistic outreach at a camping site somewhere in the Netherlands. The half-open building was adjacent to the local swimming pool. During the sermon more and more people came in, only dressed in swimming suit! Imagine how hard it was to stay concentrated...
