  • One of my favorite illustrations: Evangelism is simply one beggar telling another beggar where to get the bread.
  • Family: My wife Patty is my best friend. She has given me three children, Stuart, Sarah and Samuel.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Let’s be honest ... parents are not a good judge of sermons. Of course, they think that their children are the best.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She enjoys the sermons because I attempt to be concise and honest.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Make the Bible practical. Tell people what they need to know and tell them what to do.

  • Hobbies: University of South Carolina Sports Golf, computers
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Dare to dream ... the future is yours to see
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Humor is discovered in the moment ... in other words you would have to be there to think it’s funny. My description of the event would not do it justice.
  • What I want on my tombstone: His dreams are now fulfilled
