About Kristopher
  • Education: BA in Communication from Concordia University (Austin, TX)in ’99 M.Div from Concordia Seminary (St Louis, MO) in ’05
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Please use whatever good you can come across in my humble ramblings. And remember the hardest task in preaching is to get the people to see beyond themselves. This takes a preacher who points people beyond themselves, to a cross and an empty tomb. This is the heart of the Christian Gospel. Self-help, motivational speeches do not save souls. On the other hand, God’s Word is always living and active and accomplishing His Will (Heb 4:12, Isa 55:11).
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Every sermon that stays true to God’s Word, rightly distinguishes the difference between Law and Gospel, and points me to the free salvation found in Jesus Christ alone, makes a difference.
  • Family: I married my best friend, a wonderful child of God named Sheri, in July 2003. We are expecting our first child on or around Feb. 16, 2007.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They listen, sometimes.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I can do no wrong. Until I mess up ;)
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: An old Pastor once told me, "Jesus told Peter to feed His sheep. Not His giraffes. Keep it simple"
  • Books that have had an impact: "Gospel Handles" by Rossow "Just Words" by Preus "Handling the Word of Truth" by Pless
  • Hobbies: Fishing, hunting, and all kinds of sports (coaching and playing).
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There is only one thing needful, faith in the one who saved you, God’s Son, Jesus Christ.
  • What I want on my tombstone: John 11:25-26

    The entire Bible, from the first page to the last, points us to Jesus. We place our hope and faith in Him alone.

    “It’s All About Jesus” Revelation 22:12-17,20 May 23, 2004 It’s no big secret. Y’all have been making fun of the way I talk since the day I moved here. It aint easy being a Texan living in Nebraska. We’ve had fun discussing the meaning of words and phrases like; y’all (2nd person plural more

    Because Jesus Christ has conquered death and paid the price for our sins, we can live lives free from fear.

    “Do Not Be Afraid!” Revelation 1:17-19 World events seem to crowd in upon us. Tragedies, catastrophes, and crises seem to descend upon us without any let-up.

    Who do you say Jesus is? This question is just as important today as it was back then.

    “Who Do You Say I Am?” Matthew 16:13-19 January 18, 2003 Three people have been in the news quite a bit recently. Tell me, what do you think of these folks? What do you think about the new Nebraska coach, Bill Callahan? Is he the best man for the job? Who do you say he is? Is he a more

    This soon after celebrating Christmas we read the account of Herod’s slaughter of Bethlehem’s baby boys. What does this tragic story mean for us today?

    The Holy Innocents Matthew 2: 1-18 December 28, 2003 Two weeks ago on my drive to church, the radio broadcast some spectacular news. I had to double check the dial to make sure this wasn’t some early morning comedian telling a joke. Nope, it was NPR, and yes it seemed what they were more
