  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Hope you were helped and encouraged!
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: "The Glory of the Resurrection" by James S. Stewart.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Eddie Rickenbacker's life raft experience.
  • Family: Married to an amazing and wonderful woman and have two equally amazing daughters. Very blessed to journey together through the ups and downs in our faith walk.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Best preacher in the world!
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Worst preacher in the world! Actually, she really finds them encouraging and uplifting.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach about God, preach about twenty minutes.
  • Books that have had an impact: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis; Christianity and Liberalism by J.G. Machen; Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton; New Testament Theology by G.B. Caird.
  • Hobbies: Reading, writing, music, meeting people, traveling, espresso, chocolates!
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I would talk about God's absolute sovereignty and his abundant mercy and grace.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: A fistfight broke out in the back of the church. Not so funny—My mind drew a blank. I shut the Bible, picked up my sermon notes, and walked out of the church.
  • What I want on my tombstone: You have saved the best till now.
