  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I pray that they would be both an encouragement and a challenge to you.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Hearing recordings of MLK; I’m inspired by Eugene Lowry’s sermon "Up The Down Staircase", the only sermon I have ever listened to that kept my solid attention from first word to last.
  • Family: Irene and I have been married for 10 years as of October 11, 2007. We have no children but are working on joining the baby boom presently occuring in our church.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My parents are not yet Christians. They’re proud of me.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Most of the time my wife appreciates my sermons but she lets me know when I’ve failed to communicate with clarity, or have lacked organization in my thoughts.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Don’t try to preach like someone else, preach like you preach. Get a main idea and stick to it, try to avoid the shotgun sermon.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Bible . . . I love to preach it and think on it.
  • Hobbies: Real Sports & Fantasy Sports . . . Hockey, Baseball, Football Reading . . . Bible, John Piper books, John Grisham novels
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." You can’t get more sucinct than that.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I once preached with my fly down, oops.
