Education: Graduated from Prairie Bible institute 1966 trained to pursue Missionary service
Comment to those looking at my sermons: I will not spend my time preaching from others sermons and I will not preach from ones that I previously used (Except when the occassion demands such. My intention is to read, and meditate on God's word seeking to bring a message for the people I am serving each week.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Martyn Lloyd Jones on The Sermon on the Mount. G. Campbell morgans studies on Malachi
One of my favorite illustrations: The christian life like a football game. A foul is committed, the game stops, the penalty is assed and the game continues on. Guilt is like the referee blowing the whistle.
Family: Married, two children and two Grandchildren
What my parents think of my sermons: Not much- They are dead and I preached both of their funerals
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Learns new truth
Best advice given to me about preaching: Prepare through meditating on scripture, get blessed yourself through preparation and overflow in the pulpit.
Books that have had an impact: Calvins institutes, Lloyd Jones on preachers and preaching. Mostly all of Charles Colsens writings
Hobbies: Writing especially for children.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: How to grow a Helthy church from the clear teaching of the scripture.
Something funny that happened while preaching: While I was preaching, My young son decided with his friends to flash a mirror in my eyes. As the congregation wondered what I would do, I just kep speaking, walked down from the pulpit and took the mirror awy, and resumed preaching.
