I also forgot I served two summers for Child Evangelism Fellowship as a Summer Missionary teaching 5
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: As a young pastor, I am always looking for input regarding anything someone can give me. E-mail me with any insights, comments, etc. at
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Not a sermon but a concert that I attended. It was Ray Boltz’ Concert of a Lifetime. It was at this concert that I was saved.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Any time that I can use Star Trek
  • Family: I was married in 2005 to my wife (Becky), with whom I have one son (Aydian) and a daughter (Kathryn).
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They have started embracing my gifts after years of wondering if this is the correct path.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She really enjoys them and gives fair criticism of them.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: KISS - Keep it simple, stupid.
  • Books that have had an impact: Lord Foulgrin’s Letters by Randy Alcorn This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti Many others
  • Hobbies: I enjoy reading, watching movies and tv, Star Trek, and computers
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I don’t know.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I picked my nephew up during the service and he would not let me go, so I preached with him in my arms and the congregation loved it.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He died doing what he loved.
