Education: Currently pursuing Bachelor in Theleogy through The Manhattan Bible Institute
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Before you take the easy route and take somebodyelse’s work, listen to the sermon in the sermon and see what God is telling YOU! It’s really powerful. Use my sermons more as Sermon Helps, then sermons to preach.
Sermon or series that made a difference: What Kind of Love Is This? John 3:16
One of my favorite illustrations: The young boy who had been in jail and wrote a letter to his parents to see if it was "ok" to come home and asked that they tie a yellow ribbon around the tree at the train station if it was ok.
Family: Married to Lady Tamika with 3 Children, Brandon Elijah, Isaiah Russell & Trinity Rose
What my parents think of my sermons: My mother is very proud of me and I’m honored that she lived long enough to see me doing SOMETHING good!
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I think that she’s often IN SHOCK of how I’m able to put thought, scripture and facts together so that the Word of God becomes applicable to everyone’s current situation or where they’ve been
Best advice given to me about preaching: Find the "tension" in the text....what’s wrong!
Books that have had an impact: He-Motions By TD Jakes
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Already.....You are ALREADY healed! You are ALREADY blessed! You are ALREADY victorious! WALK IN IT!
Something funny that happened while preaching: I was Neck Deep in my "run & whoop" and said...."He put clothes on my table...and food on my back!"
What I want on my tombstone: Russell Murray Rillie, Beloved Husband, Beloved Father
