About Maurice K.
  • Education: Minister Mickles is graduating from Wm. J. Woodham High School in May of 2006. Pending upon his graduating, he will attend a instution of higher education where he will major in Mass Communications. He has already attended several courses to heighten his preaching ministry.
  • Experience: Minister Mickles has always had a desire to carry the word sense the very early years of his life. God gave him the first opportunity to speak in a church service in 1997 at the age of 7 years old where he preached a message entitled, "THE ABC’s of FAITH". On April 30, 2000, Pastor J. Abbott saw fit to give him a license to preach after demonstration of the gift through the preachment excercise in which he preached a sermon entitled, "What You Need is In the House." Recently God has allowed him to travel the country side preaching to august church families.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: When looking at these sermons, pray and add to them what you feel your people need and preach them like you are painting your own masterpiece. The art of preaching and the art of biblical understanding is pending on you. You can preach every sermon that I have or any other preacher has and if you are not anointed and you do not study it won’t work. So in the words of Paul to a young Timothy: Study to show thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not be ashamed, Rightly dividing the word of Truth."
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Everyone who down in Who-ville liked Christmas a lot…But the Grinch, who lived just north of Who-ville did not! The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season! No one inquired the reason. It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his heart was two sizes too small. Christmas, it brings out the best in people, and it brings out the worse. We have probably all been around people from both persuasions. I want us to look at Christmas through the eyes of the Grinch. You might have watched the cartoon, or read the book by Dr Seuss, How the Grinch stole Christmas, or seen the new Jim Carrey Movie of the same name. Or you might not have done any of these. I know you will however be able to identify with the different people I plan to identify, perhaps even identify yourself. So lets look at different people’s reactions to Christmas.
  • Family: Minister Mickles recently turned 18 on June 17, 2006. He stays with his parents, Deacon Holman and Dannie Mickles. In June of 2006, he will head out into the world at large to venture into the world of higher education, home management, and hopefully even into developing a family of his own.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They think that my preaching is great. They critque me but they love it.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: As of now, I am unable to be married because I am too young, but I am believing God to send a young lady into my life that will be able to further the completion of the assignment that God has given me.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Many black preachers, contemplating the audible participation of those in the pew, intentionally slow their cadences, time their pauses, and chant or semichant their phrases in a most adept and deliberate manner. Their time delivery is structured to meet the requirement of the old adage: start slow, rise high, strike fire. Sit down in a storm... Some claim that much of the creative genius heard in black preaching is directly attributable to this longstanding freedom and pulpit autonomy... When the preacher becomes confident of this authority, he or she then enjoys a certian license in the preaching event that allows the preacher to engage in a creative, thought-provoking exchange between the text, the congregation, and the preacher. ~Cleophus J. LaRue
  • Hobbies: Minister Mickles is just a normal 17 year old African American teenager living in the twenty first century. He enjoys the regular and window shopping in Cordova Mall, going to the movies, and listening to all kinds of music. He enjoys making people happy whether he knows them or not. He also excells in writing expositonal pieces on textual pericapes, poetry, and building publications. He enjoys watching horror movies and going to various restaraunts including: McDonalds Applebee’s Red Lobster TGIFriday’s and Damon’s.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There is nothing to hard for God
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Minister Mickles was preaching and his foot got caught in the microphone cord and he feel face forward in the middle of the sermon. So he used that as an illustration of how the devil doesn’t want us to please God.
