Education: I attended East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN and Hiwassee College in Madisonville, TN.
Family: I am married to a true blessing, Heather, and have 5 wonderful children, Ashley, Dylan, Hannah, Emily, and Anthony.
What my parents think of my sermons: My mom loves them. Though she reminds me to stay true to KJV.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Be prepared, do your homework, study, pray. Then just preach the Bible and God will take care of the rest.
Books that have had an impact: The Holy Bible, Living Your Heart’s Desire, The Power of a Praying Husband, When God Whispers Your Name
Hobbies: I enjoy time with my family first and foremost. I also coach soccer, and enjoy reading, writing, and playing the dulcimer and guitar.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus loves you.
Something funny that happened while preaching: I had been asked to visit and preach at a nearby church. With the change in agenda, somehow they introduced me to preach before they had thier children’s time. I was discssing the aspect of coming boldly before the throne of God, and that the throne was always open, just as the alter is always open. A 2 year old little girl took that as her invitation to children’s time since they sit at the alter when they have this, so she just came on up.
What I want on my tombstone: He’s home.
