Education: I completed college through the Assemblies of God in 1985. I completed Ministerial Studies in 1989 and was Ordained March 7th 1990 one day before my fathers birthday. My father to me is my greatest hero, teacher and Minister of the Gospel. He prayed my Ordination prayer and it will be something I will never forget.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: If you can use any part of the messages I submit, take them and use them for God’s Glory. If you can get past all the type o’s and grammar, just smile. I have really enjoyed sharing with you and being a part of this ministry. I also have enjoyed the encouragement through e-mails, thank you. I just pray that the messages we post will be an encouragement to you also because yours have ministered to me. I have found some of the greatest nuggets of gold in the midst of mispelled words. God uses all
Sermon or series that made a difference: I think one of the greatest messages I have heard and have is preached by Dr. Bill Stephens, it is called "The day Christ died!" I just added one of my wife messages called "Breaking the Myths of Revival!" She ministered it to a group of preachers and their wives at a camp meeting. The Power of the Cross by Donnie Swaggert.
One of my favorite illustrations: "All men fall, great men get up!"
Family: Have been in the ministry 31 years and my wife Dora is also a dynamic Bi-Lingual speaker and speaks whenever God opens the door, coming from Lima,Peru and has an awesome testimony. She is a devoted mother and wife and ministers with me in our Ministries on the Road, and our YouTube Channel called KitchenTherapy7 which is now in 7 countries. God is awesome we have three children our son David Matthew is 25 & grandson, a beautiful daughter Alicia who is 19, and my youngest energetic Chris is 10.
What my parents think of my sermons: I am always intimidated when I know my parents are around, stumbling through my message. I have to laugh at my self because I feel like a kid. My father and mother were just here and my father said "I always enjoy listening to you preach, not because you are my son, but because you are annointed." I almost broke, because to me he is the greatest preacher to ever minister God’s word.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She smiles when they are ministering to her and gives me the cut sign when I am going on to long.... I always look for her while I preach, for she fills the missing rib spot.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Pull from every resource you can, but the best source is still God’s word. Be yourself, let God’s creativity flow through you like a river. I have tried to be like others and failed miserably, when I relaxed and just preached what he had given it has always been enough to feed His sheep.
Books that have had an impact: The Pentecostal Pastor and God’s Generals there are so many it would be to hard to list them all here. I am sure many of you understand what I am saying. And my wifes new book on the "Holy Spirit." Pentecostal’s and Sexual Abuse Institutional Healing or Denial," By Cae Cordell it can be ordered through Amazon.com
Hobbies: I love hunting, fishing and just riding horses.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: It is never too late with God. All He is looking for is clay that is willing to recieve what he has already given. Never be unwilling to letting God teach you in area’s that you may not enjoy.
Something funny that happened while preaching: Always remember to turn off you headset after preaching...lol
What I want on my tombstone: Here lays a soldier of the Cross who, Loved Jesus, Loved His Family, Loved the Church and had a passion for the Lost
