About Landon Winstead

Education: BA Texas Christian University MS Texas A&M University

Comment to those looking at my sermons: Notice Illustrations important in my preaching

Sermon or series that made a difference: Issues Christians Face

One of my favorite illustrations: Betsie ten Boom was imprisoned and brutally treated in Ravensbruck Concentration Camp during World War II. Before dying there, she said to her older sister, Corrie, "If ever you get out of this place, go and tell the world that no matter how deep the pit, He is deeper still." No matter how deep the pit, God is deeper still.

Family: Married with an adopted daughter from China

What my parents think of my sermons: They were very proud of me and thought I reminded them of my grandfather who was a well-known minister in our denomination

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Enjoys hearing and reading them

Best advice given to me about preaching: "Be brief but deep"

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God is not the God of the past, but of the present and future...
