Comment to those looking at my sermons: I have developed into an outline style preacher so I hope you can follow my outlines enough to be helpful. Please know that these sermons are straight from the throne room of God and have been prayed over, meditated over, researced, reviewed and preached all to the Glory of God. If it were not for the divine revelation of God, none of these messages would exist. They aren’t Seminary, they’re Supernatural! Bless you and thank you for your interest. Please let me know if any of these sermons have helped you at all or if you have any questions on how to approach them. "StepOut2003@aol.com"
Sermon or series that made a difference: One of the greatest reponses I have ever seen to a message I delivered came in September, 2004. I preached a message titled "Who Do You Think You Are," from Matthew 16:13, which can be found posted here on SermonCentral.com. The message focused on how we as people of faith have been distracted and held back from being productive in the kingdom and in life because of an identity crisis. The Lord revealed to me that if the people understood who they were and what they were destined for, then they would be a people who operate in destiny and purpose. The Lord also revealed that he would break the chains of bondage that was homosexuality, from over the youth in our youth ministry. The Lord even went so far as to show me who would be coming to the altar for deliverance, and that glorious Sunday morning, just as the Lord had shown me, four of our youth came to the altar after the message to be delivered from homosexuality and many others came for deliverance from other issues. God moved in a mighty way that day through his word, his spirit, his power and his might. However, unlike some might think, my greatest joy that day didn’t derive from the fact that these young people had been delivered, or even that the message went forth with power, my greatest joy came from experiencing the faithfulness of God! After a year of praying, preaching, teaching, and prophesying, the Lord showed me the fruit of my labor in a vision and was faithfull to bring it to pass. To God be all the GLORY!
One of my favorite illustrations: Bishop Smith-Johnsonwas preaching a message called "The Word Is Out!" She was discussing how once the word of God goes out it will either be used or wasted, but it can’t go back from where it came so you may as well take it and use it. To illustrate this she took a tube of toothpaste and squeezed it out, demonstrated how it couldn’t go back in the tube, them used it by rubbing it on her teeth as opposed to just whipping it off her fingers and throwing it out.
Family: Married with three children.
What my parents think of my sermons: My mother loves that when I reach my passion (shout) in my sermons I don’t scream incoherently. She says that when I preach it feels like I’m having a conversation with you. My Grandmother liked the fresh perspectives I put on familiar scriptures that she’s heard preached hundreds of times in her decades of active service in the Church.
Best advice given to me about preaching: "Don’t try and imitate someone’s style, just say what God told you to say... Don’t bring any ’foreign’ books in the pulpit... don’t go into the pulpit without a bible... and STUDY!" - Bishop Loretta Smith-Koffi, M.Div.; Bishop, Ordinary; 2nd Presiding Prelate of Covenant Ecumenical Fellowship & Cathedral Assemblies International, Inc.; Sr. Pastor, Shekinah Glory Christtian Church.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: "God is real! God is faithfull! God delights to love and bless you! To God be ALL the glory!"
What I want on my tombstone: He knew God, Loved God, Served God!
