Education: High school grad, 1987. Spent 1 year in YWAM in the DTS & SOE programs in 1988/89.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: I am a simple man preaching simple sermons with the simple idea of leading people to Christ. If God can use me, God can use anyone.
I am thankful for those who have influenced my life through their messages. Most are close to home, but I have been grateful to those who contibute here on this website for sharing their love of sharing the gospel.
One of my favorite illustrations: A farmer is walking around his property when he hears a banging sound around the side of the barn. He goes over to check it out.
Coming around the corner he sees a full-grown goat running head first into the side of the barn, lowering his head as if dazed, then backing up and doing again; over, and over, and over. Thinking that the old goat had hit his head a little too hard, the farmer goes over to collect the goat and return him to his pen. But on getting closer to the barn he notices that each time the goat hits the wall, a little feed is falling through the cracks of the barn, and he was bending down to eat. The old goat wasn’t so dumb after all! We may feel we’re butting our heads against a wall, but if we’re getting just a little result each time, it’s worth it!
Family: Married to my beautiful wife, Stephanie. We have been blessed with 3 great kids
Best advice given to me about preaching: All sermons should lead to the Gospel message of Christ. Lead people to Jesus, every time.
