Education: D. MIn. and M.Div. New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Read others’ sermons like they are commentaries. Take only what is helpful to YOUR sermon that the Spirit is leading YOU to prepare for your people.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Jesus’ simply words to Matthew--"Follow Me" have made the difference in my life
One of my favorite illustrations: The carrot, the egg or the coffee--when each are faced with the same adversity--boiling water--the carrot and the egg are changed. Only the coffee changes the adversity and makes it something pleasant.
What my parents think of my sermons: They never heard me preach
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She generally thinks less of them than I do!
Best advice given to me about preaching: Keep a mint in you pocket and use it after preaching for the invitation.
Books that have had an impact: The Blesssing by Smalley and Trent
Experiencing God by Blackaby
The Grace Awakening by Swindoll
Hobbies: Golf, bowling
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Make the number one goal in your life to be pleasing to God. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God--determine that each day, before you get out of bed that you will be pleasing to Him.
Something funny that happened while preaching: A four year old kept answering my rhetorical questions.
What I want on my tombstone: Malachi 2:5-6
