Education: I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University (1979) and Asbury Theological Seminary (1982).
Comment to those looking at my sermons: THEY SOUND BETTER LIVE! One of my preaching heros -- Dr. Jimmy Johnson -- said, "If everything that happens in your worship service can be captured on a tape, you’re in trouble!" I believe there is a dynamic difference between the live proclamation of a sermon and the dead record on a computer screen. When I read another preacher’s sermons I assume the living presentation carried the Holy Spirit’s power. Please do the same for me. Thanks.
Family: I’m happily married since 1978. We have three daughters and one very special granddaughter.
What my parents think of my sermons: Mom and Dad think my sermons are great, but they could be biased.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She loves me and won’t say anything to hurt me.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Be biblical and practical while keeping it short and simple.
What I want on my tombstone: Followed Jesus, Loved his family, Shepherded his church
