About Christopher
  • Education: Alumni of Southeastern College of the Assemblies of God in Lakeland, Florida, Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA, and Berean University, St. Louis, MO.
  • Experience: Have served in 9 ministerial positions as Minister of Music, Minister of Youth, Education Pastor, Evangelism Director, Associate Pastor, and Senior Pastor now in five churches.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Be sweet. But be honest.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Wow. That’s tough. I guess I would list my influences. T.D. Jakes - especially his old, pre-TBN days. Jentzen Franklin. Old Rod Parsley. T.L. Lowry. Perry Stone. Man, there’s a bunch. Pretty much anything they preach(ed) makes a difference.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: I’ll have to think about that one.
  • Family: My wife Jannise and I have been married for almost fifteen years, and have two daughters -- Shiloh (12), and Shara (10). We have been in full-time ministry together for our entire marriage.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: I guess they like ’em. I HOPE they do. If not... :o(
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She better like it, otherwise, she’s fired.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Be yourself; don’t try to emulate anyone else’s ministry.
  • Books that have had an impact: Hinds Feet On High Places, The Divine Romance, and most recently, The Shack. (I know, some hate that one. I didn’t.)
  • Hobbies: Computers, travel, reading, basketball, running
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: REPENT. It’s still the ONLY message the world really needs.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Well, I guess nothing that hasn’t happened to anyone else. The zipper down... the cell phone going off. There was one lady who kept falling asleep in the services in one of my churches, and it was the running gag that she was "counting ceiling tiles" - she was an older Pentecostal lady. We encouraged her to tie the knot on TOP of her head, to even out the weight, so she didn’t bobble one way or the other.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He loved.

    There is a theory in science that has not been widely published. It is called the "Butterfly Effect." The term was made popular recently in a Hollywood Movie.

    When Jesus heals the man infirmed with palsy, he gives him the command to "Arise... take up thy couch, and go home." The healing was in the body. The couch was about the mind. This is a message about partner with God in the healing.

    Contributed on Mar 27, 2005
    based on 40 ratings

    The call of Christianity from the perspective of the hands-on generation. It takes more than a book. More than a story. You have to TOUCH HIM. From the story of Thomas.

    John 20:19-28 19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands more

    We’re not in this thing by ourselves. We have an obligation to those on this journey with us.

    Other Little Ships Mark 4:35-41 Sunday, March 20, 2005 Elton Woods Church of God It is not my custom to preach a message more than once. I feel that if God gives me the message for a particular congregation, it is for them. This message wouldn’t necessarily apply under that criteria. I first more

    Giving the Gospel legs -- a message on evangelism, and sharing our faith.

    LOOSE THE COLT AND UNTYING YOUR POTENTIAL Luke 19:30-34 This morning, I come to you with what I believe is a positive message. It’s a message for us today. I find that in my times of prayer and fasting for this church body, and seeking God for direction, that one resounding theme keeps on more
