Education: I have a Master of Theology degree from Andersonville Baptist Seminary in Camilla, GA. I should finish my Doctorate of Theology from Southwest Bible College and Seminary sometime in 2008/2009.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Most of my studies for the last twenty-five years have been in the field of eschatology or end-time studies. I also enjoy typology and dispensational perspectives. Therefore these sermons can also be used for studies or vice-versa.
Sermon or series that made a difference: The Parables of the Kingdom series in Matthew 13 - The parables show us the conditions that will exist during the course of this age while the King is absent. The seven churches show us the internal or inward view as God sees them; whereas, the seven parables show us the external or outward view of the church as man sees her. The parables of the kingdom of heaven represent professing Christianity (Christendom).
Family: My wife Diane is a social worker at a nursing home in the Southeastern United States.
What my parents think of my sermons: Both of my parents have passed away in the last four years, but they were very proud of their son.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife is my greatest supporter and has the ability to critique my sermons and give me the "bottom line" on what I need to do to improve the quality of my sermons.
Best advice given to me about preaching: When all else fails, just simply "Preach the Word."
