Education: I have an A.A.S Degree in Computer Electronics and a B.S. Degree in Human Services with a minor in Special Education with a License to teach in the state of Virginia.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Read them as if you are hearing them. Then be a receptive hearer and do them.
Sermon or series that made a difference: I have many sermons. But one sticks out in my mind that I preached called the Apostolic Doctrine of Salvation. Based on Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."(KJV)
One of my favorite illustrations: Tater People; two jars; and weights. Email for explanation...
Family: I have been married to my 7 years. She is the best thing God has gave me next to God’s saving grace. We have 1 daughter who is almost 4 and a little boy on the way in July/August
What my parents think of my sermons: They are honored and talk about it all the time. My parents have said many of times that they are honored to have a son that listens to the "Voice of God."
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She has had great impact on them because she critiques them. She enjoys every one of them and always brags on me. She is my greatest inspiration. She helps bring me through the tuff times.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach like you’re a dying man with nothing to lose. Preach as if you are going to the cross. Preach as if there is no tomorrow and it is your last opportunity to stop someone from going to hell.
There are two types of preachers that make me want to preach better, those who can and those who can't.
A preacher must be ready to preach and ready to die!
Books that have had an impact: Prayer of Jabez, Bruce Wilkerson; On the Brink, Rod Parsley
Hobbies: I love music and teaching it. I play the guitar, bass, drums, organ, piano, mandolin, banjo, and do-bro. God has truly blessed me with talents. I also love spending time with my family.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Repent for the kingdom is at hand. Don’t die lost and go to hell!
Something funny that happened while preaching: My pants were to long so I kept stepping on them and pulling them up. Of course I didn’t realize it but my wife did. Also, I preached not realizing that my pants were unzipped until I got home that night after service.
What I want on my tombstone: Here lies the Man of God.
