  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Feel free to use anything that may help and feel free to offer honest criticism (with love please). Note: It is the practice of this church to preach straight from the bible. We follow the Lectionary assigned readings from which the sermon/messages are derived.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Loving and Serving God by Loving and Serving Each Other. (This later became our mission statement)
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Using an egg with a brown shell and an egg with a white shell. Break both eggs into a large mason jar and ask "which egg came from which shell?"
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Unfortunately, they never heard one.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She shares her opinion readily and more often than not gives affirming and encouraging reviews.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: After prayerful preparation, preach from the heart and never have second thoughts; you will always have critics.
  • Hobbies: Hunting, Fishing, Outdoors
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God gives every man the freedom of choice. His WILL is that we choose to do HIS WILL.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Once while preaching a Palm Sunday message I shared the sentiment of the crowds calling for the crucifixion of our Lord. I raised my voice and projected: "CRUCIFY HIM!, CRUCIFY HIM!, CRUCIFY HIM!" . From the a rear pew, echoed a small toddler's voice: "CRUCIFY HIM!, CRUCIFY HIM!, CRUCIFY HIM!" - It made the point of some joining in with the crowd, not even realizing what they were a part of.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Lacking Perfection but Abounding in Faith.
