  • Experience: Christian Camp Director since 1998. I pastored in The Church of the Nazarene for 3 years prior to that.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Perhaps you know why I’m a camp director and don’t preach every week now! HaHa
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: "Love Never Fails" by Adam M. Triplett (1974-1997) His sermon is on the internet. Go to the URL http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Hangar/7293/my_education.htm and follow down to the Real Audio link for the sermon.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Milton Poole said to Reuben Welch, "If you want to stay in a church and be happy for any length of time, always impute the best motives to the actions of your people." Source: Preacher’s Magazine, June, 1989.
  • Family: Married to Anne Michelle Hostetler on Dec. 29, 1994. No children.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My Mother is the only one who has liked every sermon I ever preached.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: That depends upon which sermon, but she’ll be sure to let me know.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Share what God is doing in your life.
  • Books that have had an impact: Second Thoughts On: How to Be as Terrific as Your Dog Thinks You Are! by Mort Crim
  • Hobbies: Genealogy, Playing (Non-gambling but rated) Cards Online, Poetry Writer
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: The greatness of Heaven will be Jesus.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: A lady from a nearby church walked in and came down the center aisle during my sermon and asked the congregation if we were interested in tickets to a fundraiser their church was having.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Others (Just Like William Booth)
