About Kelly Durant

Education: We have worked with several independent churches doing missionary work but now we are with the Salvation Army for 21 plus years.

Comment to those looking at my sermons: Notice that I keep the theme of the scripture to make the point but go down a few trails before getting back there.

Sermon or series that made a difference: Studies on Revelation making people more aware of the seriousness of current events.

One of my favorite illustrations: The Good Samaritan.

Family: We have 3 boys and 2 girls between ages 37 and 16.

What my parents think of my sermons: My mother liked them all.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She likes most all of them.

Best advice given to me about preaching: Make it culturally relevant for what they are experiencing currently.

Books that have had an impact: Bible and... lost count of many books on the subject of new religious movements to church history.

Hobbies: Traveling, cultural studies.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: 'Feed my sheep', as Jesus implored Peter to do.

Something funny that happened while preaching: The electricity shut off during the sermon and had to adjust and explain why God wanted us to have the no electrical experience.

What I want on my tombstone: Kelly's life only took on meaning when he found Jesus, and then he lived all of his life to bring His love to others.
