Matthew Drake

Denomination: Pentecostal

About Matthew Drake

Education: I graduated from Edwards-Know Central School in Russell, NY with a NYS Regents diploma. I then joined the US Navy and have further pursues my education in the higher education system of life.

Comment to those looking at my sermons: Open your heart.

Sermon or series that made a difference: Willie Cole and Dewayne Lewis preaching and teaching Search for Truth Bible study aboard USS FOrrestal in 1991. Rev. Rick Olson’s Pastoral Ministry in 1992 in Jacksonville, FL. Pastor Kenny Marshburn’s Evangelistic / Pastoral Ministry from 1992 to present.

One of my favorite illustrations: Concerning the Oneness of God and Baptism in Jesus Name. The titles, "Father, Son and Holy Ghost" are not names. When you sign a check you don’t put titles on it, you put your name!! To Baptize in the name of the Father, Son & Holy Ghost means to Baptize in the name; singular!

Family: I am married, to my beautiful wife Stacy; who has given me two beautiful litlle girls. Taylor Renee (5) and Macayla Christine (3).

What my parents think of my sermons: Haven’t heard many of them, but liked what they heard. I baptized my sister in Jesus Name in summer of 1999.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife is my best supporter and critique at the same time. She loves to hear me preach and I value her advice and suggestions as well.

Best advice given to me about preaching: "Anything you have to say can be said in 20 minutes", Kenny Marshburn "Preach your heart and you’ll do fine", Thomas Whitman "Listen to God always, He won’t steer you wrong", Barbara Whitman

Books that have had an impact: United We Stand, by Arthur and Charles Stanton The Oneness of God, by David Bernard Why? A Study of Christian Standards, by W.A.P. Elective Series When Ye Fast, by Joy Haney Before Home, by Kenny Marshburn The New Birth, by David Bernard The Left Behind Series, by LeHaye & Jenkins

Hobbies: God, Family, Church, Youth Ministry, Job....and in that order.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Seek the Holy Ghost!!!

Something funny that happened while preaching: I realized I had an unzipped zipper!

What I want on my tombstone: Here lies a man that fulfilled the Will of God.
