  • Experience: Preached my first sermon in 1974. Received my ministry license in 2006 and ordination in 2014. Faculty member: Grace Ministries Bible College. Ministry calling: Teacher.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Dr. Jim Martin's series "Is My Eternity Secure?" examines scriptures that deal with the "once saved, always saved" issue. Excellent! It changed the way I view and respond to my relationship with my Heavenly Father.
  • Family: Married 39 years Spouse, university professor 2 adult children
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My Mom heard me preach my first sermon. She said "You have to be yourself. You can't preach Oral Roberts stuff forever." (That was my Mom!) My Dad heard me preach a couple of times and was blessed each time.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Say what the Lord tells you to say
  • Hobbies: Reading books about and by those mentioned in God's Generals, playing John Madden football (2004), listening to messages by other teachers
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Don't be ashamed of the gospel.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I was teaching and said "God is not here to make you happy." As soon as I said that the song "Don't worry, Be happy" started playing in my mind and I started singing it. The congregation cracked up!
