About Dr. Larry Petton

Comment to those looking at my sermons: Take this and preach it better!

Sermon or series that made a difference: My series in 2013 changed my life -- A JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE. I preached through the Bible in 12 months and asked our members to read through the Bible with me. It changed our church. In 2014, we are going through the Greatest Chapters of the Bible.

One of my favorite illustrations: H.A. Ironside's famous illustration of the two-headed lamb!

Family: Wife-Rosanne, is the Church Administrator for Cross Pointe Community Church, Tontitown, AR

What my parents think of my sermons: Very proud but never told me.........just told everyone else! Lol.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is so supportive, always complimentary and means it from her heart.

Best advice given to me about preaching: Ministry is taking people from where they ARE......to where God wants them to BE. Tell them what you are going to tell them. Tell them. Tell them what you told them!

Books that have had an impact: Boundaries - Trent Power Over the Darkness - Anderson Hallelujah Factor - J. Taylor

Hobbies: Hunting Fantasy Football Boating

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: John 14:6 - Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through HIM.

Something funny that happened while preaching: I passed out as a 17 year old youth evangelist while preaching on death! Haha. Scared the church to death.

What I want on my tombstone: I AM IN SALES..........HE IS IN MANAGEMENT!
