About Donald
  • Education: Bachelor of Arts In History Education, Louisiana College, 1984 Master of Divinity in Christian Education, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, 1994 Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Studies, Andersonville Theological Seminary, 2000
  • Experience: I have over thirty years of ministry service as an evangelist, pastor, teacher, businessman, and hospital chaplain in Louisiana and Oklahoma. I retired from active public ministry late in 2020 due to health issues, but I maintain an online writing ministry for Bible prophecy and devotional websites along with select ministries that request curriculum design and research.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: These writings are a collection of not just sermons, but also expositions of books of the Bible themselves. I want to present past works that I have posted on other sites over the years, revise them as needed, and present new material for the enrichment of pastors, teachers, and anyone who is hungry for the solid food of the Word of God.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: After I was saved in 1975 while still in high school, the work and messages of the late David Wilkerson impacted my life and desire to serve the LORD as a minister of the gospel. Later, the messages of D. James Kennedy, John MacArthur, W.A. Criswell, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, R.C. Sproul, Adrian Rogers, and Francis Schaeffer all assisted me in a deeper understanding of the Gospel and the doctrines of the faith.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: I used the speech of Winston Churchill where he proclaimed that Britain would never surrender to Hitler as an illustration of not bowing down to the demands and bullying of the world in presenting the truths of the Gospel.
  • Family: I have been married to Cathy, the love of my life, since 1983. we have three children, two of whom are adults and on their own, and one waiting for us in heaven. I am originally from the heart of "Cajun country", Lake Charles, Louisiana, and have been blessed to have travelled around the world and proclaim the gospel in numerous churches, missions, and be a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ in the fields of education and healthcare chaplaincy for nearly twenty years.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My parents are gone now, but they were always supportive of my ministry work.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I go over my articles and messages with my wife to get her reaction and counsel. In the past, when I left to go present the Word, she'd hug me and say, "Preach well." She sees what I am doing now on the internet as God's open door to have a worldwide audience to read and engage in His Word and doctrine.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Stay prepared. Study well. Pray fervently. Maintain a good witness of what a godly man should be in life.
  • Books that have had an impact: "Battle for The Mind" by Dr. Tim LaHaye "What if Jesus Had Never Been Born?" by D. James Kennedy "How Then Shall We Live?" by Francis Schaeffer "Preachers and Preaching" by Martyn Lloyd-Jones "Things to Come" by J. Dwight Pentecost The works of John MacArthur The Memoirs of Field Marshall Montgomery The Life and Times of Lord Mountbatten "Reminiscences" by General Douglas MacArthur "Ike: An American Hero" by Michael Korda "War As I Knew It" by Gen. George S. Patton "Old School: Life in the Sane Lane" by Bill O'Reilly "Memoirs of the Second World War" (Single volume) and "A History of the English Speaking Peoples" (Single volume) by Sir Winston Churchill
  • Hobbies: My primary hobby is writing articles, Bible expositions, and curriculum for varied Bible prophecy websites, online ministries, and occasional news webpages. I also have an interest in calligraphy and gemology, having worked in the retail jewelry business for many years. I am also a supporter of animal rescue organizations, pro-life causes, the NRA, political conservativism, and international pastoral work with anonymous ministers around the world.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: If I had one more opportunity to get behind a pulpit, I would ask the church this question: "Why are we so embarrassed about the facts presented in Genesis 1?"
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I have a slew of interesting stories that have occurred not just while I was preaching, but of things that happened while preaching funerals, making hospital visits, and other pastoral duties. Perhaps I'll put together my own memoirs and present them.
  • What I want on my tombstone: The words I want on my tombstone should either be " It is Well with my Soul" or, "An Unworthy Servant of the Lord Jesus Christ."
