About Gene
  • Education: I have a Bachelors Degree in Economics. I am still working on my M.Div. at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I hope to complete it in May of 2013.
  • Experience: I have been the pastor of two traditional Baptist churches that were in need of renewing. I am now attempting my second church plant.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope these outlines can be useful to you. Some are fully original and others may have been cobbled together from commentaries and other preachers sermons. The important thing is that they are used to glorify Jesus Christ.
  • Family: I am married to Kathy. We have three beautiful daughters: Nikki, Gracie and Dody.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is my greatest critic and my greatest ally. Overall, she likes my sermons but I can also count on her to let me know when I didn’t get my point across as well as I should have.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: There are two things that have really made a difference: 1. Jesus spoke in Koine Greek, the language of the common people so I should too. Don’t try to impress people with what you know. 2. Always have your sermons end at the cross. (Dr. Roy Fish)
  • Books that have had an impact: Letters to Timothy by John Bisagno and The Guidebook for Pastors both the original by Dr. Criswell and the updated one by Dr. Brunson.
  • Hobbies: My hobbies are a little different for a pastor. I enjoy riding my Harley and going drag racing. God has allowed me to use these to reach groups that most don't go after. The ministry opportunities that come from these are amazing. I also enjoy any outdoor activities that involve my family.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God is so much bigger than we can even imagine. So is His grace. We must accept both.
