I am the pastor of three churches in Northeast Arkansas.
I start pastoring churches in 2007. I have had the privilege of serving a dual denominational church, a small country church, a large city church and each have had their own learning experiences!

Best advice given to me about preaching
It's not about the people. Worship is about GOD!!!
Sermon or series that made a difference
The 15 talks in a three day experience called "Emmaus" and/or "Kiaros"
One of my favorite illustrations
Tony Campolo's story of Agnes's' birthday party.
Books that have had an impact

Something funny that happened while preaching
During a baptismal service, I was giving a sermon at the Baptist church, in front of my church members and theirs, when my cell phone went off to a specific ring tone set for my mother.
What my parents think of my sermons
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons
She says she likes my preaching better than others.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...
Repent for the Kingdom Of God is at hand. This was John the Baptist message and it was Jesus' message! Live today like this is the Day He returns!
What I want on my tombstone
Forgiven. I'll be waiting by the gate to meet you there.
Comment to those looking at my sermons
I milk a lot of cows but churn my own butter. There is no original thought. If it inspires you; it will inspire others. If you use something I've printed, don't give me credit; give God credit!
