About Amanda
  • Education: Bachelor of Science with Honours Ph.D. in Medical Biology Bachelor of Theology Advanced Diploma of Christian Ministry
  • Experience: Preaching, Music ministry, Recovery Ministry, Patoral Care
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: If the content does not connect with where you are in your journey with God then don�t use it. People will be able to tell if you don�t believe what you are saying, no matter what words you say.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: At the moment would have to be the Lord of the Rings because it has such a biblical idea of power: the power to control (Sauron�s ring) destroys and the power to serve (the elven rings) creates and sustains
  • Family: Husband of 25 years, Steve, and two teenage daughters
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Father does not come to church. Mother heard one before dying and said it was good.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I believe he thinks they are good. Certainly my oldest daughter does.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: DONT tell people at the start where you are going Make it into a story and take people on the journey with you so they can see how you made the discoveries you did and the conclusions you came to.
  • Books that have had an impact: All of Ravi Zaccharias� books All of Leanne Payne�s books All of Henri M Nouwen�s books M. Scott Peck�s In Heaven as on Earth; People of the Lie Watchmann Nee�s books Silence, Silence by Shusaku Endo Phillip Yancey�s books Hadden Robinson�s books on preaching
  • Hobbies: Music, reading, internet
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus is everything you will ever need - try it out
  • What I want on my tombstone: She loved God and others passionately
