About Loyd C.
  • Experience: Over 35 years ministry and counseling experience.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I claim no originality and just hope they will be a blessing to the reader.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: G. Campbell Morgan, any of his sermons. Chalk Artist Berrie Merit who drew the picture, "Throw Out the Lifeline" from which I was convicted and later saved.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. One morning he was walking along the shore after a massive storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish. In the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man shouted out, "Boyt, it ain't gonna make a difference." The young boy tossed another starfish back into the water and said, "Mister, it'll make a difference to this one." I've often thought about how little a difference to the great need of the world I might make in my ministry, but this story encourages me to believe I can make a difference in one soul at a time.
  • Family: I am married to Katherine. I'm a family man, and a people person. I have four children, ten grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My mother and dad would be proud of a son being in the ministry, both are now with the Lord Jesus.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is brutally honest, my best critic.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Have the skin of a rhinoceros and the heart of a deer.
  • Books that have had an impact: My Utmost for His Highest, by Oswald Chambers Competent to Counsel, by Dr. Jay Adams
  • Hobbies: I write poetry and songs; I play the guitar and sing.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I suppose if I knew it was my last sermon, I would preach about the great love of God and how after all these years it still amazes me that He would save a sinner like me. Then I would appeal to others to accept this same love. It was the love of God that saved me and drew me to Him and for which I will forever be grateful! I would quote the song, "The Love of God" by Author, Frederick M. Lehman (1917)
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I finally was able to purchase two suits, both pinstripe: one brown and one blue. I was visiting a church and preaching for the first time and was so excited to finally wear a new suit, one not purchased from the Good Will store. In my haste to make a good impression, I put the top to one on and the bottom to the other. O well, I should have gotten a hold on my pride before going out to preach about it to others. LOL!
  • What I want on my tombstone: He was a friend to sinners.
