Education: I graduated from Nazarene Bible College in 2006 after cramming all 4 years of the program into only 8.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Don’t be too hard on me I am still a rookie but I try to stick to the bible.
Sermon or series that made a difference: I preach a sermon in September 2007 that seemed to be the beginning of s turning point at our church. I sometimes chuckle as my congregation refer to it as "the sermon."
One of my favorite illustrations: I love the "Purple Socks" theory.
Family: I married my wife Mandy in 1996 and shortly thereafter we had our first child Mia and 5 years later we had our son Kenny.
What my parents think of my sermons: They are proud of me and think I do well, or at least that’s what they tell me.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She also finds them enlightening and at times helps me refine an idea or thought.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach about God, Preach about Holiness, and precah about 20 minutes.
Books that have had an impact: 7 habits of Highly Effective People - Stephen Covey
Moments With the Savior - Ken Gire
anything by John Maxwell
Hobbies: I love to golf and do just about anything with my family especially anything to do with the outdoors.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: It’s not about the stuff, it’s about the people.
Something funny that happened while preaching: I was preaching a particularily passionate sermon one Sunday and just as I made a rather poignent statement lighting struck with loud boom followed by a smooth low rumble. It was almost as if god was saying "amen" Himself.
What I want on my tombstone: "He loved people."
