Comment to those looking at my sermons: Feel free to use my sermons as is, or as a starting point for your own. We all have different styles, but it sure can take a long time to put the whole thing together. Keep in mind that most of my sermons are preached with a Vietnamese cultural perspective and through a translator so it may be a little different from what you’re used to. Please let me know if you find these sermons a blessing. I really like to get email.
Sermon or series that made a difference: The very first time I preached, for all of 13 minutes in October 1997, I preached a shorter version of "God’s Answers for Our Excuses" and a woman came to me afterward and said that she had been invited to speak at a conference, but that she was afraid to. After hearing the sermon, she said she had the courage to speak at the conference. Especially since that was my first sermon, it was good to hear that it had an effect.
Family: Well, I have 2 brother, 2 sisters, and 2 parents. I'm currently in the process of becoming engaged! :-)
What my parents think of my sermons: Well, I think they’re proud... though I don’t know why...
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: uhm... as soon as I get one, I’ll tell you.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Stephan, you don’t have enough humor in your preaching. You should add some humor.
Books that have had an impact: "Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God" by Gordon Fee
Hobbies: Computers & Real Estate.
Something funny that happened while preaching: A joke.
