About Jim Drake

Education: BS - Liberty University; MAR - Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary

Sermon or series that made a difference: Alistair Begg’s four volume Pastor’s Study CD series has positively impacted my preaching more than any other.

Family: Married with three adult children and one grandson.

Best advice given to me about preaching: "A patriarch may do with propriety what a young man must scrupulously avoid." --Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Books that have had an impact: Anything by Francis Schaeffer; D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Studies in the Sermon on the Mount; Stephen F. Olford, Anointed Expository Preaching; John MacArthur, Ashamed of the Gospel; and of course Spurgeon’s Lectures to My Students

Hobbies: Who has time for hobbies? Preaching, study, hospital visits, sheep herding, and discipleship (not necessarily in that order)

What I want on my tombstone: RAPTURED--Tombstone not needed
