Best advice given to me about preaching: My Pastor told me, "Be prepared, God honors your commitment to prepare to preach His word." I haven’t always prepared as I should hacve and it showed.
Hobbies: Marsha and I love to camp in the mountains and fish.
Something funny that happened while preaching: I was preparing to preach my first Funeral. As I was on my way to the Church I looked over at Marsha and said "As long as I stay humble and remember that Jesus is the only way I will get through this, I’ll be allright." As I was standing in the pulpit just prior to the funeral starting I bent over to get some matches to light some candles and that’s when it happend, a rush of cool wind on my back side, My pants had busted at the seam. Needless to say, I went the whole service, humble and trusting Jesus. No one knew but my wife, the piano player, her husband, me, and of course, Jesus.
