Education: I have a Bachelor’s in Theology, and I am currently attending Liberty Theological Seminary
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Take what you can use, and leave the rest behind. But give the Lord the glory!
Sermon or series that made a difference: Life application
One of my favorite illustrations: A man loving a colony of ants and becoming an ant to warn them of the coming danger, as an illustration of Christ’s coming as a man.
Family: I am married to Sandra. We have 4 sons. Rich and Steve are Marines. Mitch is 16, and Brandon is 13.
What my parents think of my sermons: My mom cries every time she hears me!
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is my biggest fan and my biggest critic
Best advice given to me about preaching: Be transparent and yourself
Books that have had an impact: Conspiracy of Kindness, and If you want to walk on water, you’ve got to get out of the boat.
Hobbies: Fishing, hicking, traveling.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Let Jesus love you, and love others through you!
Something funny that happened while preaching: I once congradulated an 86 year old couple on their 67 wedding anniversary, and said in front of my wife and congregation, "I could not imagine wanting to be married to any one for 67 years". What I meant to say was, " I could not imagine being married for 67 years." oops
What I want on my tombstone: He believed what he said.
