  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Make them yours not mine. Preach to your context. Contextualize. Know who is listening to you so well that you give them what they need not what my people needed.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Extreme Makeover NASCAR Outreach Motorcycle Outreach "Build Your Life on This"
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Our God-Space hole in our soul is like the childhood toy where all the shapes are to fit into it. The circle in the circle and the square in the square. You can jam the circle into the square but it doesn’t fit right. In the same way people are constantly trying to jam the things of the world into their "God-space" and it suffices for a time until they realilze it is wrong and try something new. We are all restless until we rest in Him.
  • Family: I have a wonderful wife, Kris, who leads our children’s ministry as well as homeschools our four children, Joshua, Hannah, Gracie and Samuel.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Never heard them.
