  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: NOTHING IS ORIGINAL, IF THEY CAN BE USED, MAY GOD RECEIVE THE GLORY. I WANT TO PRESENT OUTLINES (USUALLY ALLITERATED) THAT PEOPLE CAN REMEMBER. THE SERMONS ARE USUALLY "LET’S EXAMINE THIS SCRIPTURE/SUBJECT/QUESTION TOGETHER" AND OFTEN TAKE A "WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHERE, HOW" APPROACH. IN MY MINISTRY SETTING, THE SIMPLER THEY ARE, THE BETTER I HAVE COMMUNICATED.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: THE BOOK OF JOB
  • One of my favorite illustrations: A LITTLE BOY WAS PUT TO BED ONE NIGHT..IN THE DARKNESS, HE CALLED TO HIS DAD:"COME HERE, DAD...I’M SCARED OF THE DARK." HIS DAD SAID "DON’T BE AFRAID,SON..GOD IS WITH YOU." TO WHICH THE LAD REPLIED, "YEAH, BUT I WANT SOMEBODY WITH SKIN ON!!" APPLICATION: WE CHRISTIANS ARE TO BE "GOD WITH SKIN ON" TO A LOST AND UNCHURCHED WORLD.
  • Family: MARRIED, TWO CHILDREN, TWO STEP-CHILDREN, 5 GRANDCHILDREN
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: SHE IS GRACIOUS IN HER COMMENTS...AND WILL RECEIVE A DOUBLE REWARD FOR ENDURANCE IN GLORY!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: LOVE THE PEOPLE AND ALWAYS INCORPORATE THE PLAN OF SALVATION INTO EVERY MESSAGE SOMEHOW...YOU NEVER KNOW WHO MAY BE IN YOUR AUDIENCE NEEDING JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR. "WHEN YOU ARE HONORED WITH A "ROAST"...THEY MAY NOT REMEMBER A SINGLE SERMON...BUT THEY WILL REMEMBER THAT YOU WERE BY THEIR SIDE WHEN THEIR LOVED ONE DIED, HAD SURGERY, GOT MARRIED, ETC." THEY MAY NOT REMEMBER WHAT YOU SAY, BUT THEY WILL REMEMBER YOU "BEING THERE"...OFTEN SITTING BY THEM IN SILENCE BUT BEING THERE, JUST THE SAME. THAT PREACHES LOUDER THAN WORDS!
  • Books that have had an impact: JOHN CLAYPOOL: TRACKS OF FELLOW STRUGGLER WARREN WIERSBE: WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOD’S PEOPLE JAMES DOBSON: WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE GRANGER WESTBERG: GOOD GRIEF THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD VERSION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURE
  • Hobbies: SINGING...MUSIC
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: LIFE IS SHORT DEATH IS SURE SIN’S THE CURSE JESUS CHRIST IS THE CURE
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: AFTER THE MORNING PRAYER, WITH ALL PASTORAL DIGNITY, I BEGAN TO BACK TOWARD WHAT I THOUGHT WAS MY SEAT ON THE PLATFORM... WHEN I PLACED MY HAND ON THE CHAIR ARM, I DISCOVERED I HAD TOTALLY MISSED THE CHAIR, AND SAT SOUNDLY ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF EVERYONE! (NEEDLESS TO SAY...I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN IT). AFTER A GOOD LAUGH, WE ATTEMPTED TO REGAIN COMPOSURE AND CONTROL OF WHAT WAS TO HAVE BEEN A VERY SOLEMN WORSHIP SERVICE.
  • What I want on my tombstone: HE CARED
