  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: My prayer is that each sermon that you read will penetrate to your heart. As a result, I pray that you will make the needed change(s) in your life.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: A few years ago, I produced a drama for children to be presented during our conference’s revival meetings. In one particular scene, after Jesus gave the "Sermon on the Mount", the children were allowed to shake hands with Jesus as they left the staging area. At times, Jesus would lay his hands on the children’s head and would say "Bless you". Later, at the end of the evening, my 4 year old nephew went running to grandma to tell her about what had happened that night. He said, "Grandma, Jesus touched me tonight and said, ’Bless you my son!’". This is the case of every born again believer, there are times in our lives that Jesus places His hand upon us and simply says, "Bless you my child!"
  • Family: Married to Frances of Columbus, Ohio in October 1997. One daughter born in February 2001. One son born and passed into the presence of Jesus in April 2004.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: "We knew it!"
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: WOW!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Keep it simple and short. You do not have to scream!
  • Books that have had an impact: Laugh Again, Chuck Swindoll And The Angels Were Silent, Max Lucado Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado How To Handle Adversity, Dr. Charles Stanley
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus died for you. He wants you to live with Him in Heaven. Repent of your sin today!
  • What I want on my tombstone: A man who made a wonderful difference because of his example.
