Comment to those looking at my sermons: Any manuscript you read of mine is not usually the way it is ever preached. I add, take away, tweak, follow a leading, whatever. It also lacks the passion...and intensity!
Sermon or series that made a difference: PainKillers
Seven Ways Weird families Work
One of my favorite illustrations: Hmmmmm.
Family: Wife and three daughters
What my parents think of my sermons: Well, Dad is in heaven thanking me for sending more people there. Mom likes what she here’s although it’s not like her traditional preacher.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She thinks I am a good communicator and most often hit the mark. She is also my best critic.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Make your main points practical application
Books that have had an impact: Spiritual Leadership by Oswald sanders
The Purpose Driven Church by Rick Warren
GraceWalk by Steve McVey
Hobbies: Golf, Fishing both fresh and saltwater
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Stop trying to live for Jesus. Let Him live through YOU!
Something funny that happened while preaching: I was asking the question, "What is it going to take for God to get your attention?" Just then, unrehearsed, all of the lights in the theater went off and sirens blared. We laughed about it, but a lot of people paid attention after the lights came back on.
What I want on my tombstone: He increased the size of heaven, one life at a time!
