Education: I have a Bachaelor’s Degree from Campbellsville University, and I am nearing a second one from Louisville Bible College. I have intentions to start on my Master's work in Theology.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Remember, where the Bible speaks we speak, where it’s silent we are silent..."In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, love."
Sermon or series that made a difference: I remember a series preached by my friend and mentor Terry Peer on the 4 Chambers of the Christian Heart.
Family: I have a loving wife, Andrea, who has put up with me for almost 15 years. In that time, we have the privilege and blessing of parenting two wonderful children, my son Levi, 13, and my daughter Rose, 7, and our latest addition, Olivia.
What my parents think of my sermons: Freaked them out the first time they heard me...they were use to the old life I had lived before preaching. When they got use to it, they found a need to reconnect with the Lord and attend services at their local congregation.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says she likes them, but is one of the best critics I have. She offers constructive insight and encourages me to reach out to Him more (Really)!
Best advice given to me about preaching: A wise minister once exclaimed to me, "Don’t go in unprepared to preach thinking that you can wing it on your own, but don’t do so much prep that you smother the Word with facts and illustrations." I have never enjoyed preaching more!
Hobbies: Spending time with the family, art, golf, fishing, reading, playing Playstation with my son, watching football (Go Colts & Vols!).
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There is no other way to Christ but through His Gospel, His Life, and His Plan of Salvation as recorded in His Word!
Something funny that happened while preaching: A few years back, I was getting ready to lead the morning worship, and as per usual for me, I ran up to the stage. Only problem was my feet fell out from under me and I tripped in front of the whole congregation. I laughed the whole way down and back up! Several were scared at first until they saw me laughing. Then everyone joined in! Hurt my knee just a little bit, but it was worth sharing in a good laugh and fellowship.
What I want on my tombstone: A man that is just as alive now in the hereafter as he was in this life.
