About Keith Foskey

Education: Doctor of Ministry, Jacksonville Baptist Theological Seminary

Comment to those looking at my sermons: I write almost every word I am going to say. I do not read my manuscripts, but I do have them with me in the pulpit for reference. This has been the most successful method for me through the years.

Sermon or series that made a difference: Ray Comfort "Hell’s Best Kept Secret" R.C. Sproul "Chosen By God" R.C. Sproul "The Holiness of God"

Family: Wife, Jennifer (Married August 1, 1999) Three children.

What my parents think of my sermons: My parents are a great source of encouragment for me.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife is a great source of encouragement to me.

Best advice given to me about preaching: Expository preaching is based on three principles: Read the text, interpret the text, apply the text. Thus, expository preaching is centered on the text.

Books that have had an impact: The Holiness of God, R.C. Sproul Chosen by God, R.C. Sproul The Potter's Freedom, James White The Forgotten Trinity, James White The Sovereignty of God, A.W. Pink

Hobbies: Spenidng time talking with my wife, reading, teaching karate at the church, working with kids and teenagers.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God is Sovereign, Holy, Just, Perfect, Righteous, and Love. I am imperfect, incomplete, unholy, unloving and a sinner. But by His grace He saved me, in while I was still a sinner Christ died for me. By faith imperfect men can become justified in God’s sight. "For by grace we have been saved though faith" (Eph 2:8)

Something funny that happened while preaching: I am a large man, and I love to kid around about my size. During an evening service (where our attendance is usualy smaller and more intimate) I kept bumping into a microphone stand used by the worship team. I finally said, "We might need a bigger stage" and one of my congregants said, "or maybe a smaller pastor!" If I didn’t have a sense of humor, and a knowledge of that person’s loving heart, I might have been crushed!

What I want on my tombstone: For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Phillipians 1:21
