About James Smith

Education: San Jacinto Jr. College Baptist Bible College Andersonville Baptist Seminary

Comment to those looking at my sermons: I don’t claim to bring you anything new here. But as the Lord inspires me, I hope these are a blessing to you, and that you can take what I have written here, and blend/change it to meet what you feel the Holy Spirit is leading you to say....

Sermon or series that made a difference: Bro. Mike Marcellus (Austin Texas) and his sermons on Joshua. Series on Nehemiah 1999 at Real Life Christian Fellowship Houston Texas

One of my favorite illustrations: The story of Billy Graham’s Sunday School teacher. It shows the importance of being faithful, you never know the impact in the heavenly’s.

Family: Mirna (35-wife) - A gifted writer and the love of my life! Corey (10=son) Rachel (8-daughter)

What my parents think of my sermons: I don’t believe that they have heard me preach before...

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: When I asked her this, she started laughing.. Not a good sign! She commented that I am very good at putting the children to sleep! She has a great sense of humor! (I hope it was humor...)

Best advice given to me about preaching: 1) Be brief 2) Be real 3) Be practical 4) Be relevant 5) Be honest

Books that have had an impact: "Prayers That Avail Much" series by Germain Copeland "Capture Your Call" by Terry-Anne Preston(Golko) "Public Praise" by John Hendrick "Heresy Hunters" by James R. Spencer "The Cell Church" by Larry Stocksdale" "The Bible for Palm OS" - Laridian Software

Hobbies: Musician - Trumpet, keyboards and vocals. Song writing, specifically worship music. Computer technology.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Be faithful to what God has called you to do. No matter how great, or small it might be.

Something funny that happened while preaching: Often I have totally forgotten good friends names!

What I want on my tombstone: Current Occupation: 2nd Chair Trumpet in the Universe’s Best Band
