Education: I am currently at, and about ready to graduate from Cincinnati Bible College (Cincinnati Christian University) with a BA in Preaching Ministry.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Hope they are helpful...
Best advice given to me about preaching: If Corinthinas says that God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, the things which are not to shame the things that are, the weak things to shame the strong...That means that we are christians not because we were strong, or noble, or great; rather because we were poor, dumb, and counted as nothing. If this is how we are called as christians imagine the implications to the preacher. I was not chosen to preach because i was intelligent or good at public speaking. I was chosen because I was dumb enough, because I was soo terrified to stand before men and talk that any good that happened from the pulpit was from God. There is no room for pride in the pulpit. Remember God chose you because you were weak and dumb enough he would be glorified.

Something funny that happened while preaching: I once had a woman take her pants off while I was preaching. That was ackward. When it happens at a rock concert, you know it has been a good rock concert. I don’t know what to think about when it happens while preaching. (This happened at a nursing home, and was awkward. Very awkward)
What I want on my tombstone: Woops...
