Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope these sermons are helpful, and that you like them, but
most of all, that they draw you closer to Jesus Christ.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Lots of sermons by Billy Graham, Vance Havner, Spurgeon, and
3 children: Katie-in college,Jr. ; Kevin-just graduating from
high school; John-10th grade this year
Best advice given to me about preaching: "Stand up! Speak up! Shut up! Sit down!"
"No matter what message you preach, head for the cross."
Books that have had an impact: Wiersbe’s "Be" series, Spurgeon’s works, Billy Graham’s books
Hobbies: Fishing, reading, coin collecting
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There’s only one hope for our world,and for every person in the
world, and that is to know Jesus Christ as personal Savior, and
to love Him supremely!
Something funny that happened while preaching: Once, when I was preaching, I was using some notes in an old
wooden country church. They had an oscelating fan, and I guess
you know what happened! There went my notes down on the floor
in front of me! I panicked, and said-"O.K. folks! Bow all bow
your heads in prayer!!!!!! I went down and got my notes!!! One
gentleman told me I did pretty good after I got my notes!
On another occassion, a man lost his dentures and began to pray-
"Lorrrrdddd, iffff Youuuu help me get my dentures back in-I’ll finish this prayer!"
What I want on my tombstone: "He went up in the rapture!!!"
