Education: Johnson Bible College 1992-1996
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Know that I don’t take myself too seriously and most Friday’s ask God "what makes you think I am the guy for this?"
Sermon or series that made a difference: Anything that Jon Courson has taught www.joncourson.com
One of my favorite illustrations: I remember several years ago when Montgomery was like 6 and Emerson was 4, Emo came into the bedroom and flipped his mom off. Yea, that’s right! He walked in and stuck up his middle finger. After his mom sent him to his room to await punishment, she told me what had happened and as we were discussing punishment, Montgomery came in and told us that he had taught Emerson how to flip the bird. We asked him if he knew what it meant and he said no. I told him that Emerson was in trouble for it and he said “Dad, can I take Emerson’s spanking for him?” Substitutionary Atonement.
