  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: We are all in this together my friends. I hope these articles and sermons can be of benefit to you. May God direct and bless us all in what we do.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: I hope all I have heard and delivered have made a difference.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: I don't like speaking in front of family. Lol. Both are proud and enjoy them very much. I performed my older sister's wedding in front of many friends and even more direct and extended family. It was one of my best God be the glory.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Being a pastor is the most rewarding job there is, however, it is also by far the most difficult as well. Do all that you can to NOT be a pastor. If you cannot find fulfillment and everything keeps directing you back to ministry, then you can be assured your calling is true."
  • Books that have had an impact: So many: The Bible (of course); I am stumped as I've read so many I don't know where to start - Calvin's "Institutes;" Spurgeon's works; Christianity in Crisis: 21st Century; The Apocolypse Code; Counterfeit Revival; Letter's From a Skeptic; Mark Driscoll's "Doctrine;" and so many others I know I'm leaving out.
  • Hobbies: Reading and studying Bible and Theology; Starbucks; Martial Arts; Lake Fishing; Swimming; Movies.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I would focus on God's grace. I would make it clear He is not looking for reasons to keep us out of eternity with Him, but He is giving us reasons to recognize we are His for eternity.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Something small but very funny at the time: It was one of my first times speaking publicly and I was very nervous. I was sharing something that had happened in my life where my teeth had been chattering. Well, as I meant to say "my teeth chattered" I actually said "my teeth shattered." People were laughing, a few were trying to be respectful and hold it in, I was baffled as I didn't realize what I had said and the pastor kindly told me "you said shattered instead of chattered." Then we laughed.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Ephesians 2:8-9
