Education: Although I went to college for five years I have no degree simply because I couldn’t find where God was leading me until I realized I was called into the ministry at which time I was hired as a Youth Pastor and stopped attending college to put my full effort into the youth group.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: My speaking skills are far stronger and more developed then my writing skills so please understand that from my mouth things sound better then from my finger tips.
Family: I’m married with no kids. Well actually if you count my youth group I’ve got about thirty kids that take up alot of my time.
What my parents think of my sermons: There proud of me and are always positive. But all parents are so I smile and tell them thank you.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She has actually been positive towards my sermons. A few comments of needed work but usually positive.
Best advice given to me about preaching: To simply follow where God leads.
Books that have had an impact: Many of the books written by Max Lacado have inspired and helped me in my walk with God.
Hobbies: Sports are my biggest out of church hobbie, but I also collect star wars toys.
Something funny that happened while preaching: My youth group always threatens to do things while I’m preaching and once in a while I’ll catch them making faces at me and a couple of times I’ve had to take a deep breath before laughing on stage. The biggest threat they have made though is to make a "GO JOSH" sign and hold it up but I’ve been able to hold them off so far on that one.
What I want on my tombstone: He served God first
