About Kerry
  • Education: Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min.), Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), U.S. Military Academy, West Point, NY
  • Experience: 27 years in vocational ministry. 17 years as Army Reserve chaplain. I also serve as a full-time VA Mental Health Chaplain, which I love. I specialize in "moral injury" and PTSD work with combat Veterans.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Please borrow ideas and make them your own. (All too often I've tried to preach someone else's sermon. That doesn't work so well.)
  • Family: Married (33 years), 3 kids, 2 grandkids
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They were my biggest fans (as well as my biggest critics). Now they're in heaven, so they probably don't have time to tune in.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says they're "pretty good" (which is as good as it gets with her rating system).
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: It's a sin to give a boring sermon. (I think that was from Rick Warren.) Preaching requires preparation. And leaders never stop learning.
  • Books that have had an impact: "The Purpose-Driven Life" and "The Purpose-Driven Church" (Rick Warren)
  • Hobbies: Spy thriller books and movies, a little bit of gardening (when I can't fix people, I try that).
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: For me, to live is Christ. To die is gain!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I've seen other preachers say "God bless you" when someone sneezes, so I do it, too. People laugh and kind of like it. Makes you more real.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He loved God and loved his family, and he tried to make the world a better place. And now he is just getting started with life.
