Education: I am a High School graduate, as well as a MFA Ministries School Graduate. I have both a Theology Degree as well as a Seminary Degree. My instructors always loved to hear me speak, for they said I had "that special gift" that preachers need to reach the people.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: Be prepared to hear the Word in a "no holds barred" fashion. I dont like to :candy coat" nor will I "tickel your ears" with what you "want to hear". Rather, I will preach to you the Word of God, as it is suppose to be, truthful and impactful.
Sermon or series that made a difference: The one sermon that made a difference in my life, is when a preacher made comment: "You will never know how you are, until you know who you are. Are you of Christ? Or of your father, the devil?"
One of my favorite illustrations: Denomstratng to a Youth Group, how when we tell Jesus to wait, we are technically nailing Him to the cross to keep Him from following us.
Family: My wife Mandi and I have been married several years. We have a son Micah, whom loves to get involved with the works of the church.
Mandi is my right arm where the works of minisyty are concerned. Had it not been for her, Ministries Outreach would not be in the position we are today.
What my parents think of my sermons: My parents were against me becoming a preacher, for they felt as if I would not be committed enough. Through the years, they saw the changes in me and in my life, as I studied and answered God's call to my life. Before my father died, he told me he was really proud of my accomplishments through ministry.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife is my biggest supporter and loves to hear me preach. In her own words; "I love it when you strike it head on."
Best advice given to me about preaching: "Never be afraid to say those things the Lord places on your heart, because someone out there needs to hear it."
Books that have had an impact: "Intercessory Prayer" by Dutch Sheets
"Are we Living in the End Times?" Lahaye/ Jenkins
Hobbies: I love to collect those things of Star Trek. I have been "fascinated" with this show ever since it came out. Through the years, I have collected many of things in regards to this show, and have them on display in my home.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: That which the Lord puts on my heart.
Something funny that happened while preaching: I made a comment about how all of us are but vapor, and our lives are over in an instant on this planet. A little girl (7 - 8 years old) up front, said out loud, "I'm not a butt vapor! And I am surely not a poot!"
What I want on my tombstone: My name, my birthdate, and my ending date.
