About Johnny
  • Education: D. MIn. and M.Div. New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
  • Experience: Pastor 8 years Youth Minister 5 years Adjunct Seminary Professor 7 years
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Read others’ sermons like they are commentaries. Take only what is helpful to YOUR sermon that the Spirit is leading YOU to prepare for your people.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Jesus’ simply words to Matthew--"Follow Me" have made the difference in my life
  • One of my favorite illustrations: The carrot, the egg or the coffee--when each are faced with the same adversity--boiling water--the carrot and the egg are changed. Only the coffee changes the adversity and makes it something pleasant.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They never heard me preach
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She generally thinks less of them than I do!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Keep a mint in you pocket and use it after preaching for the invitation.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Blesssing by Smalley and Trent Experiencing God by Blackaby The Grace Awakening by Swindoll
  • Hobbies: Golf, bowling
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Make the number one goal in your life to be pleasing to God. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God--determine that each day, before you get out of bed that you will be pleasing to Him.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: A four year old kept answering my rhetorical questions.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Malachi 2:5-6

  • No Mas

    Contributed on Aug 30, 2002
    based on 25 ratings

    Because of the blood of Jesus Christ, there are several things that have said, "No Mas, No Mas" so to speak concerning our Christian lives.

    No Mas! John 1:29 On November 25, 1980 in New Orleans, Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran fought their second of three fights. In that fight, Duran, in the 8th round said those now famous words, “no mas, no mas.” In other words, he said, no more, no more. He was done, finished. Think more

  • Allow Me To Introduce Myself

    based on 34 ratings

    Jesus never tried to prove who He was. He was the only S.I.G.N. that we need to have in order to know God.

    Allow Me to Introduce Myself Matthew 11:25-30 Last week, we saw how Jesus introduced the Father to us. This week, let’s see how Jesus introduced Himself to His disciples. It is important for us to understand that Jesus never tried to “prove” who He was. He stated facts, and left it up to more

  • A Little Spark Will Start A Blazing Fire

    based on 51 ratings

    For revival, the church needs a S.P.A.R.K. This spark will start the flames of revival we need.

    A Little Spark Will Start a Blazing Fire 2 Chronicles 7:11-22 For the last two weeks we have discussed how Jesus introduced His father and Himself. We have looked at these two introductions in an attempt to prepare us for revival as we have taken a closer look at God. Then through Ezekiel more

  • 71%

    based on 41 ratings

    Five of the seven churches in Revelation were called to repent. What we need today is REPENTAL instead of Revival.

    “71%” Revelation 2:1-3:22 Next week will begin our revival services, but I pray that revival has already begun. Some of you may wonder if we need revival as a church or even as an individual. Why do we have revivals? Have our revival services become just two additional days during the more

  • Covenant Smuvenant

    Contributed on Aug 30, 2002
    based on 29 ratings

    A covenant is a serious agreement two parties enter into and they must not be taken lightly, especially the covenant we have with God.

    Covenant Smuvenant 2 Corinthians 3:4-18 Remember Daffy Duck—whenever he thought something was not important, he would say “smuvenant.” Have you ever just blown something off? You know, “it’s no big deal; it’s not really important.” Well, the covenant that God made with Abraham that was more
