Education: 3 years of Theology at bible school. 2 years of Fire Science at junior college.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: I would have put just a simple outline but I think it’s sometimes better when you can see a complete sermon. Not always are people looking for it so I wish there was a way to attach just the outline so you could just get the meat and spit out the fat. Either way, I hope it helps.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Search and see for yourself. I have a few sermons on this web page. Hope they help. Many where years ago.
One of my favorite illustrations: Anything on war, the human body, the planet, space and statistics. I love inserting some type of mini drama in some how. I love stuff that captures a crowds attention from the start.
Family: My family tree has generations and generations of preachers. Some like the Apostles started churches all over the world, some are evangelist, missionaries and pastors. I’m proud of my familys dedication to the cause.
I somehow was a really late bloomer.
What my parents think of my sermons: My dad really has helped me develop. Both of my parents I think are incouraged on what they hear when I preach. I really hate to speak for others.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: That I’m usually short and sweet. I never like going over 30-45 mins. In fact I don’t always use ALL of my notes but I will paste them all on here in case any of it is usefull.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Hermenuetics and alot of praying!
Books that have had an impact: Desperation Zone by Danny Hood
Hobbies: Anything fun and youthfull.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Get Addicted! Get addicted to the cause....
Something funny that happened while preaching: Well, I had a cousin of mine accidentally curse while preaching. He was trying to say benches and it came out something else. He quickly recovered though and all of us jokingly gave him a hard time.
What I want on my tombstone: What you earn makes a living. What you give makes life.
