  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Romans and Hebrews Sermon Series, they were the first time that I took in depth looks at the whole of a book. I found my research tools to be limited, and began to look at more and more technical commentaries as well as improving my Greek skills. I'm in the process of adding Hebrew and Latin to my skill set.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: "People who believe that little green men are chasing them, run."
  • Family: Kevin and Pat Derr. We've been married for almost 11 years now, and are enjoying our son, he was born in September. We also have a dog named Lucky.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "People can only go where their leaders take them." If you preach superficially, you will only develop superficial people. You cannot expect your people to develop good biblical world views if you do not provide them.
  • Books that have had an impact: Celebration of Discipline, by Richard Foster. The Gagging of God, D.A. Carson Preface to Theology, Yoder Foundations for Church Growth, Hunter
  • Hobbies: Old houses, reading, Cars, cooking, travel, family, history, and fishisng
