Comment to those looking at my sermons: The kids call me the Shrek pastor, one of a kind!
One of my favorite illustrations: How is a pearl made? When an oyster gets an irritation it forms a pearl. the pearl is a sign of a healed wound. Is it any reason that when we die we go through the what? The pearly gates, healed wound, no more pain.

What my parents think of my sermons: Both have passed and lived in Connecticut. They never got to hear me in person.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Just asked her and she said they are good!
Best advice given to me about preaching: Never be afraid to preach an entire Bible concept - Dr. David Hottel.
Hobbies: Sports in general, photography and vacations at the beach.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
Something funny that happened while preaching: I was doing a message on who's suit do you wear. I had bought a suit jacket at Salvation Army store. I made a video pretended that I had the suit made. In the middle I started cutting it in pieces. A lady in the congregation turned to my wife and yelled "STOP HIM"!
