About David
  • Education: I am currently going through the Regional Ordination Program that is offered through my denomination.
  • Experience: This is the only church that I have been a pastor. I have been in the business industry over 20 years. I am currently a bi-vocational pastor with the hope someday to just do my church duties.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I let the Holy Spirit led me in writing these sermons. I write them from the heart.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: I really like to listen to Charles Stanley’s sermons.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: I don’t really have a favorite, it just really depends on what the sermon is about and what it means to you.
  • Family: I am married to LaShanda and have 3 kids, Brittany, which is 12 and Jonathan, which is 10. I have been married over 16 years.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My mom and dad starting coming to church when I started preaching which I am very happy about. They say that I am getting better.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says they are good and I am getting better. Ha Ha
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Let the Holy Spirit lead you with your message. Be sincere, but always have the people you are preaching to involved. That will help them learn and keep their attention.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Bible of course. I have found the "Introducing The Old Testament" and "Introducing the New Testament" by John Drane very helpful in my studies.
  • Hobbies: I like woodworking, fishing, camping, which I don’t have alot of time to do. What I do like to most is spending time with my family.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Now, more than ever, is the time to let Jesus come into your life.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I haven’t had anything funny happen yet, but I am sure it will.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He’s Home
