  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Feel free to use any and everything you see.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Craig Barnes’ "Preaching to Convulse the Demons" The sermons of Charles Haddon Spurgeon The sermons of Robert Murray M’Cheyne Romans by James Montgomery Boice
  • One of my favorite illustrations: According to his will, a wealthy man is led out of the church with a recording of Frank Sinatra belting out, "I Did it My Way!"
  • Family: The Milton's reside in the Charlotte area.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My Aunt Eva, who reared me, went home to be with the Lord back in 1997. She was a great encourager, and inspired me to take the lofty ideas of Scripture and seek to bring them to the child. But even when I failed in this, she told me I did well. Unconditional love.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I read my sermon manuscripts each and every Saturday night to my wife and son. They encourage me, then help me to see how to simplify, clarify or identify those in our congregation who will be affected by some theme in the message.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach to the broken hearted and you will never lack for a congregation.
  • Books that have had an impact: Under the Unpredictable Plant by Eugene Peterson Five Smooth Stones for the Ministry by Eugene Peterson The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter New Testament Commentaries by Hendriksen and Kistemaker
  • Hobbies: Gardening, reading, blue grass and folk music, guitar
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Repent and believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • What I want on my tombstone: An Undeserving Sinner Saved by the Kind and Costly Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

    An exposition of Ephesians on the difference connecting our "Talk" with our "Walk" in Christ.

    Savannah is a wonderful city for walking.

  • His Last Words: Our First Work

    Contributed on Oct 17, 2001
    based on 230 ratings

    The last teaching of Christ remains the priority of every believer and every assembly: to make disciples of Christ.

    Introduction to the Reading of the Scripture I want to preach from Matthew 28.16-20. It is a very familiar passage and is all but taken for granted during Mission Conferences. Like John 3.16 and a few others, the passage is so popular that it is liable to being dismissed by those who have more
