Education: I am a highschool graduate and I am now a student at UC Davis majoring in Political Science. I am currently a junior aiming to graduate in 07.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Be open minded to my ideals as I am open minded towards yours. Don’t consider my sermons as a challenge to your faith, but rather a challenge to always be motivated to serve God. I use a lot of Bible verses to categorize seperate issues to help me in smaller discussions.
Sermon or series that made a difference: I have reviewed a few sermons but I haven’t picked one as being really profound on me. I must say that sermons by priests and pastors have had an impact on my persona.
One of my favorite illustrations: Don’t have one.
Family: My father and mother live in Redding with my younger sister. Family members on my mother’s side live in the Los Angeles area and my family members on my father’s side live in the Minnesota.
What my parents think of my sermons: They don’t know.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: N/A
Best advice given to me about preaching: Speak up, lol.
Books that have had an impact: Bible: Of course.
I usually read college texts, conservative leaving, theological books. For the most part I read news articles, newspapers, and theological texts on the Internet.
Hobbies: I like all sorts of movies but with a preference toward "action." I like to collect rock and techno music, but recently I have been looking into symphonic rock. I like to blog about political and religious subjects. I also enjoy traveling all over the place. I bike, scuba dive, swim, read, and collecting Japanese animation.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Never be so confident as to think you can’t do more or rise above man’s expectations. While you will never meet God’s expectations His love is great enough to overcome your faults and failures.
Something funny that happened while preaching: Hitting the back button accidently loosing my entire entry.
What I want on my tombstone: Loved by his King and Country
