Education: Assoc. Degree in Pastoral Ministry
Sermon or series that made a difference: "Watchman What of the Night" by Bert Clendennon.
One of my favorite illustrations: For Father's Day I remember a commercial of a little boy following his dad around doing the different things as a little boy would idolizing his father and then the Father picks up a pack of cigarettes and places them down and the child reaches for them as the commercial ends! Dad if you'll come to church your children will come with you!
Family: Married for 30 years to a wonderful woman with a great testimony shared at many women's conferences of being widowed & two grown sons.
What my parents think of my sermons: Really? MY parents have never heard me preach a bad sermon, but my wife...well?
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She cares enough to tell me what she thinks, if it's good or not so good.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Don't break anything I have to fix! & Preach like a dying man to a dying audience! & If you you're not passionate they won't be passionate!
Books that have had an impact: Books by John Maxwell & Mark Batterson.
Hobbies: Hunting, Traveling,
Something funny that happened while preaching: Lady's false eye popped out while she sat on the front row & a bat flying around the sanctuary scaring people.
