  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope they are a blessing! If you are a preacher yourself, feel free to use what you can, but make it your own. I beg, borrow and "steal" from as many people as I can and filter it through my own heart and life to put together messages that I hope will truly transform other lives. So you have my permission to beg, borrow, and "steal" from me. After all, the man who said, "I’m going to be original or nothing," ended up with nothing.
  • Family: I am married to my wife, Sandy, and we have three grown children, Elizabeth (married to Nic), Peter (married to Naseem), and Tim (married to Emily). We also have four grandchildren, Eva, Deason, William, and Arthur, whom we enjoy very much.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Turn your indicatives into imperatives" (Dr. John Reed, Dallas Theolgocial Semiary)
  • Hobbies: I play trumpet and enjoy good science fiction novels and movies.

And still, cure without care is as ...read more

    In the story of Pollyanna, there is a woman who runs the town. She’s not the mayor and doesn’t even sit on the city council.

    Many years ago, when I was planting churches, someone in one of those churches asked me if I would consider opening another church if they paid me $30,000 a year, plus housing and benefits. It was more than I was making at the time, but I told that person, “No, God called me here and now is ...read more
