About John Braland

Education: BA Crown College MA Crown College DMin Bethel University

Comment to those looking at my sermons: Like Rick Warren said to Gregg Surrat: "If my bullet fits in your gun, shoot it."

Sermon or series that made a difference: Too many to mention.

Family: I have three kids; Josh, Sara, and Katie.

What my parents think of my sermons: They think I am a good speaker. I believe they say that because they are my parents.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: They are "OK."

Best advice given to me about preaching: Always be practical and have a point.

Books that have had an impact: Now, Discover Your Strengths by Marcus Buckingham Leadership That Works by Leith Anderson Good To Great by Jim Collins UNstoppable Force, by Erwin McManus Primal Leadership by Coleman Boyatzis and McKee Anything by Larry Osborne

Hobbies: My 1970 Chevelle, 1966 Ford Mustang, motorcycle riding, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, playing hockey, spending time with my kids and church.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Follow Jesus.

Something funny that happened while preaching: A man had a full blown cell phone conversation in the front row while I was speaking.

What I want on my tombstone: Here lies John B, hit the gas instead of the brake.
