Education: High School
Comment to those looking at my sermons: These are merely notes - the power is in the delivery. Use them, make them your own and rock the flock!
Sermon or series that made a difference: The Law of Attachmnet - Paul Scanlon - changed my outlook on life and ministry.
What is in your Hand - by myself - changed the face of my church
A Heart for the House - Brian Houston - revolutionised our approach to church at ECC
One of my favorite illustrations: too many to number - possibly the story of the brick.
Family: married with 2 young sons
What my parents think of my sermons: love them (not that it matters)
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: enjoys - thinks I use too much Christianese and is trying to reinvent my language.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach with one foot in the Bible and one foot in the newspaper.
Books that have had an impact: All John Eldredge’s books - awesome, awesome, awesome!!!
For this I was Born - Brian Houston
Courageous Leadership - Bill Hybels
Purpose-Driven books of Rick Warren
Something funny that happened while preaching: Fell face first on the stage getting up to preach - notes and Bible scattered to the four winds
What I want on my tombstone: here lies Paddy. He made a difference.
